5 Local Spots To Celebrate Christmas

It is officially the holiday season and Dallasites are in celebration mode! Even though this year’s Christmas may look a little different, there are still plenty of ways to ‘tis the season! Here are a few COVID-friendly activities our team recommends to celebrate the holiday season in DFW.

1. Holiday Tea at The Adolphus

The French Room is one of the most iconic spots for holiday tea in Dallas. The service includes three courses with sandwiches, scones, pastries, loose leaf tea pairings and a glass of bubbly to top it all off! Not to mention, the decor is festive and the perfect place to snap a holiday Instagram photo.

2. Dinner at Hudson House

Espresso martinis, oysters and holiday decor – oh my! Hudson House is the definition of “deck the halls” during the holidays. Garland is draped all across the ceiling and it is the perfect destination for a small Christmas gathering! The restaurant takes reservations online so you can guarantee a table for your party.

3.Highland Park Village Carriage Rides

There is no better place to get in the spirit than Dallas’s Highland Park. The carriage rides with Threejays Carriages have been featured in Southern Living and are an impeccable way to see all of the beautifully lit homes. Carriage drivers share the history of Highland Park as you tour its streets. It is pure holiday magic!

4.Miracle on Lowest Greenville

Miracle is a Christmas-themed pop-up bar that serves holiday cocktails in festive digs. With kitschy holiday decor, professionally crafted cocktails and the nostalgic energy of the best holiday party you’ve ever been to, Miracle can get even your most “Bah, Humbug!” friend in the holiday spirit.
