Awesome atmosphere- both indoors and out. Excellent work space or hang with friends. Next door to the Coppell Farmers Market- make sure you visit on a Saturday morning to take advantage of both!

My favorite rooftop bar! Take 1-2 hours before happy hour and dinner to stroll through the shops of Lower Greenville, then end here for some great drinks, views and food in the open air.

My favorite patio bar! Warning: Wait times on weekends can extend up to 2-3 hours. TRICK: stop by, add your name to the list 2 hours before- they will add you to an app-tracking list. Head back to the patio when you see your name about 20 mins from the top to claim your seats. Excellent BBQ but it goes fast (if you're going to order some food with your drinks). Friends believe they have one of the best burgers in town.
