SĒR Steak + Spirits is nestled high atop the Hilton Anatole in Dallas and offers some of the best views in the city. The 27th-floor steakhouse features steaks, chops, market-fresh seafood and other dishes crafted by Executive Chef Kevin Spencer. For beverage pairings, guests can choose from a variety of handcrafted cocktails, an extensive wine selection or enlist the help of SĒR’s sommelier, Kristin Howell. The steakhouse offers private dining rooms for groups, all with the same floor-toceiling windows found throughout the restaurant. The Crosley, Comet, Continental and Wescott Rooms may be reserved individually or together, accommodating groups as large as 240 guests. For smaller groups, The Bear & Driver Boardroom is available for up to 16 guests. 

Event hosts can choose whether the view rotates or stays put.
