We always say we like to enjoy our cocktails with a nice view, but usually we’re referring to hot guys in expensive clothes.
But now there’s a great (and affordable) happy hour at Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck and the views are more stunning than Antonio Sabato, Jr. in a pair of Calvins before he got old and desperate.
Enjoy a 360-degree view of the city just in time for spectacular sunsets if you show up right at 5:00 p.m. Just remember, the restaurant’s name is FIVE Sixty, not THREE Sixty. Common mistake, but the name is for the tower height, not the view. (The previous public service announcement is sponsored exclusively by Gay List Daily’s Pet Peeve Patrol).
Every Monday through Friday 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., catch happy hour in the bar and lounge area of the restaurant. The menu changes daily based on seasonality of ingredients, as well as the creative whims of the brilliant (and gorgeous) Executive Chef, Sara Johannes.
We hope she keeps Wolfgang Puck’s signature Kobe Beef Slides (with fried jalapenos, mushrooms and ginger!) every day, because we could eat 37 of them in one sitting (yes, we kept count). And her Chicken Wings were elevated to such a level beyond extraordinary that even a fleeting thought of dipping them in Ranch or Bleu Cheese Dressing would cause God to skip sending down a lightning bolt and just show up himself to slap you in the face.
But no matter what’s on the menu, each night it will feature five “Tiny Temptations” and five choices of beer, wine and cocktails.
So what’s the big deal? Well, we’ve saved the best for last. Each of these items is only $5.60 each during happy hour. For stellar food and one of the best views in Dallas, that’s a helluva good deal. And valet parking is only $5.00 with validation from the restaurant.
The only thing missing is a hot guy in expensive clothes. For just $5.60.
