If you are looking for enticing drink special or a happy hour close to Uptown and Downtown, look no further than Cook Hall at the W Hotel at Victory Park. This rustic chic eatery is just across the street from the American Airlines Center, making it a great stop before a concert or game.

Cook Hall is one of the two bars at the W Dallas.

During the week, Cook Hall offers a “5@5 Happy Hour special" with select drinks and small plates for only $5 each! The special covers beer, house wine, and basic cocktails. The small plate choices include Southern comfort food like Cornbread and twists on classics like Cheddar Fritters with Sriracha Dip. There is a menu for the special online, but it isn’t at the restaurant, so ask your server which items qualify.

Along with a great cocktail selection, Cook Hall has a number of Dallas and Texas-brewed beers on tap, so you can enjoy local flavor. A beer like the Deep Ellum IPA will pair well with just about anything you decide to order. One appetizer making a simple concept special is the Three Cheese and Pear Toast. It’s piled high with prosciutto, slices of pear, bitter greens, and pistachio. The mix of sweet, savory, and salty is delicious.

The Popcorn Shrimp is pure fun: the fried popcorn shrimp is served with with popcorn and drizzled with ranch dressing. The ranch, of course, is great with the shrimp, but it’s also surprisingly good with the popcorn! It is a great appetizer to pass around and share with the table.

When you arrive, don’t forget about complimentary valet parking available at the front entrance of the W, which makes the deal even sweeter. Cheers!
