Uptown just got a swanky new restaurant at their new mixed-use development called The Union Dallas. Self proclaimed “greatest neighborhood restaurant,” The Henry offers an array of foods and drinks. Elevated American cuisine paired with chic decor, this new restaurant is already becoming a go-to spot for Dallas locals.
Walking distance from Victory Station and the American Airlines Center, I decided to stop by The Henry for a much needed happy hour. The downside is that they are still doing construction around the building so some of the sidewalk were closed and pedestrian crossing lights were not working. Happy hour is located at the upstairs bar. As you walk upstairs you get a glimpse of their semi open kitchen, a coffee bar, and dining area. The restaurant is filled with a navy and grey color scheme, gorgeous textures, wood tones, and antique fixtures. The upstairs bar was cozy with bar seating, booths, tables, chairs, and a patio area. I went on an ugly weather day so I didn’t get to check out the patio view. They also had an event space upstairs that you are able to rent out. The crowd seemed to consist mostly of office workers around the area and a sprinkle of people like me who want to treat themselves on a budget. There was a company meeting at the time so I couldn’t tell if the amount of people was from them or if this was the usual happy hour crowd. I got the mint cucumber mule, and my friend got the almost naked margarita. Both were really good! However, they could be a bit stronger. Then again, that could be the alcoholic side of me talking. I didn’t have a chance to try their food so I can’t comment on that. Overall, the space is pretty neat! I would definitely return once the weather is nicer and the construction is over. It slipped my mind to take pictures of The Union, but I will be back to check out the Tom Thumb, grocery shopping is a passion of mine, Tacolingo, North Italia, and Minami which will be opening soon. Have y’all checked out The Henry? Let me know what you thought of the place and the surrounding development!
