The 10th Anniversary of AMBITION in Dallas is sure to be a fun time, but the venues chosen for this hallmark event mark some of the best places to visit in Dallas even if you’re just in the city for the holiday weekend. Take a look at some of the places that deserve to be added as stops next you’re in Dallas.
When you think of Dallas sports, the Dallas Cowboys are synonymous with all things Dallas. There’s a new player on the field in the Dallas Cowboys empire. In addition to their world-class AT&T Stadium, there’s now the Cowboys Golf Club, the first and only NFL-themed golf club. It’s outfitted with replica Super Bowl trophies and rings from the five-time Super Bowl Championship Cowboy teams. The course even boasts its own Cowboys star on tee box number four. For football and golf enthusiasts, it’s a must-see.
Bowlounge is retro bowling at its best. Reclaimed maple and pine wood bowling lanes coupled with a 12-foot bar that has 40 of some of Texas’ best beers on tap and craft cocktails are just a few highlights. Throwback arcade games like Ms. Pacman along with coin-operated pool tables is old-time fun with a new twist in this Dallas Design District venue.
Gemma has been hailed as the No. 1 restaurant in Dallas with the best wine list by The Dallas Observer and No. 5 on D Magazine’s 50 Best Restaurants in Dallas. The owners bring Napa Valley to Dallas with a wine selection that is unrivaled anywhere else. Not to be upstaged by the wine selection, the food at Gemma (named because it’s the owners’ little gem) can be described as simple, but with a delicate twist suitable to any palate.
The Rustic is known just as much for the live music scene on its legendary backyard patio as it is for its menu that features food made from scratch daily. Family-style brunch and meals featuring everything from carnitas and picadillo to a grill that rotates six different types of wood burned daily, they manage to strike a balance between award-winning, unique, farm-to-table homestyle meals and all of the latest artists on the Dallas music scene.
These are just a few of the places where Ambit is hosting 10th Anniversary AMBITION events. Even if you’re not in town for AMBITION, these venues are musts when planning your list of things to see and do in Dallas.
