Fridays are for happy hours, Saturdays are for errands, and Sundays are for fun. We’ve rounded up the top spots in town to make the most of your Sunday Funday. From delicious brunches and mimosas to games and pet-friendly patios, these spots will surely make Sundays the best part of your weekend.

Katy Trail Ice House

Located off of the popular Katy Trail, the Katy Trail Ice House in Uptown (also located in Plano) is a go-to for Sunday Funday. Whether you’ve just finished a run on the trail or are looking to grab a few rounds of summer beers with your friends, this weekend favorite is always packed. While the Ice House doesn’t offer much more than delicious bites and drinks, it’s a local favorite for socializing and people-watching on the trail (puppy-watching is a popular pastime too).

The Social House

With a tasty brunch and games to keep you busy all day, what more could you need for a Sunday Funday? The Social House in Uptown (also located in Addison) is the ultimate one stop shop for fun on the weekends. Their backyard-style patio includes plenty of seating to chow down with friends, large flat screens for game days, DJ’s throwing down beats for a dance party, and yard games including life-size bubble balls. With so much fun packed into one place, you can see why they call it the Social House.

Bowl & Barrel

If you’re looking to switch up your Sunday scene, Bowl & Barrel in North Dallas is the place for you. This chic bowling alley offers modern dishes and craft cocktails to revamp the classic American bowling experience. Round up some friends and break up into teams for a day of friendly competition and delicious bites and sips.

Truck Yard

There’s a reason Truck Yard in Lower Greenville is always packed; it’s because once you arrive you’ll never want to leave. This popular joint packs just about everything you could need for the ultimate Sunday Funday. Their variety of booze, brews, and grub combined with rotating food trucks, a tree house bar, and live music makes for the perfect day outside. What they say at Truck Yard is true; it’s a place “where all your truckin’ dreams come true”.

The Rustic

Known for their family-style “Jam and Toast” brunch, The Rustic in Uptown is a local favorite for chowing down on good eats and socializing with other locals. Toast to the weekend with pitchers of your favorite brunch cocktails and jam out to live music all day with your buddies on their award-winning patio.

Mutts Canine Cantina

When it comes to Sunday Funday, your pup should be able to join in on the fun too. Mutts Canine Cantina in Uptown is a fantastic spot to spend your day soaking up the sunshine and letting your furry friend run and play with other pups. Enjoy their communal beer garden, grab a bite to eat, and kick back with friends while your pup makes new buddies in the park.


With a large patio, hearty eats, and several TV screens, this neighborhood bar has something for every body. While many spots in Dallas suffer from hefty drink prices, the Haymaker in Lower Greenville keeps things simple with lower prices, making this the perfect spot to continue drinking all day. This bar features plenty of TV’s to catch the game, but also offers games for you and your friends to play. Be sure to grab one or two of their delicious sandwiches to fuel up for a game of shuffleboard or darts.

Trinity Groves

The Trinity Groves area is a hidden gem in the city because it packs plenty of options into one location. This is the perfect place to experiment with a progressive lunch/dinner (visiting a new spot for each course) for your Sunday Funday. Start at LUCK for a beer or two, move on to Chino Chinatown for some Latin/Asian apps, head to Off-Site Kitchen for juicy burgers, and end your day with a slice of homemade cake at the Cake Bar (FYI they close at 6pm on Sundays).
