Staying cool in triple-digit heat is not an easy task. Thankfully, Dallas has plenty of cool locations that are ready to set you up poolside with an ice-cold cocktail in hand. Here are some of the top places to cool off in Dallas, via QuickDFW:
The BBB is the perfect place for beachy summer excitement. With sand volleyball courts, two pools, and a tiki bar, you can have fun in the sun while still cooling off.
If you’re looking for something a bit more chic, Hotel Zaza’s pool is the epitome of a stylish summer, where you can work on your tan by day for party in their alluring poolscape by night. Over at their tiki bar, Zaza serves up their acclaimed spiked Za Lemonade, which you can sip while lazing on a plush chaise lounge in the most decadent of poolside settings.
This Tex-Mex restaurant in lower Greenville is a low-key spot to chill out, offering the vibe of a backyard pool party. In between water volleyball or just a leisurely swim, you can relax at one of their many poolside tables while enjoying an ice cold margarita.
Soak up the sun while sipping on delicious cocktails at the Belmont Hotel. Located in Oak Cliff, their laid-back, retro vibe makes this spot an ultra-relaxing place to cool off, whether you’re having a picnic on the grassy lawn or getting drenched under the pool’s waterfall.
For a more exclusive, luxury vibe, Joule Poule Hotel’s highly-acclaimed atmosphere is accessible only to hotel guests or those who reserve bottle service in advance, but it’s well worth it. Their 10t story rooftop pool just out 8 feet from the building, offering breathtaking views of the Dallas skyline.
