An evening at Hotel Crescent Court is not one you want to miss! Their hospitality is always top notch from the divine cocktails and bites to the accommodations. When I heard about the Beau Nash champagne bar and cocktail lounge grand opening, I just knew I had to be in attendance!
My Lyft driver pulled into the driveway to drop me off in front of the mansion-like hotel and I strolled in to see the new-and-improved backlit bar stocked with shiny new bottles and the most beautiful pendant and accent lighting. It is certainly a fabulous addition to the hotel's elegant lobby with a modern, youthful touch.
It wouldn't be a proper cocktail lounge grand opening with a drink or two! I tried the Smoke & Rosemary (below on the left) which is mixed with Avión Silver Tequila, Campari, fresh lime juice and rosemary. If you're a fan of herbal flavors and a smoked finish, you will love this cocktail. This one had quite the kick! Next, I tried the Uptown '86 (below on the right) which I absolutely adored. This one was mixed with Absolut Elyx Vodka, Grand Marnier, peach purée, G.H. Mumm brut champagne -- more my speed with fruity flavors.
Next time, I would love to try the Maple Old Fashioned or the Orchard Manhattan -- anything with bourbon or whiskey for a night cap. This makes a cute spot for after work to grab a drink with the girls or to snuggle up at the bar on a date with your boo. Beau Nash even serves small plates, entrees, salads and desserts on the menu.
Need some food recommendations? Try the popcorn shrimp (the sweet chili sauce is to die for), the tuna poke (so fresh and so yummy) and the jumbo lump crab cakes (this is coming from a crab cake connoisseur).

If you're in the Uptown area, I highly recommend spending an hour or two chatting it up at Beau Nash with a glass of bubbly! And the newly renovated suites are BEAUTIFUL. Whether you're from out-of-town or a Dallas resident, Hotel Crescent Court makes an excellent staycation. Make a weekend of it!
