Texas liquor laws relaxed for the first time since Prohibition in 2013 when Texas legislators passed significant changes to the alcoholic beverage laws that allowed Texas distillers to sell their products directly to consumers in limited quantities. This opened the door for craft-style distilleries to take root and flourish. From El Paso’s recently launched coffee and cocktail bars to Houston’s nitro-muddled mint and hand-chiseled ice, Texans are making their mark with homegrown liquors and crafty cocktail combos.
Midnight Rambler is a new craft cocktail bar in the heart of downtown Dallas. Upon entering the bar through a sexy tiled staircase highlighted by a neon “cocktails” sign, guests are greeted by a mix of local business people, cocktail lovers, hotel guests and art lovers alike.
