We’re all about boxed wine. We’ve given in to canned wine. And we even eventually accepted screw-capped vino. But wine on tap? Actually, anything other than beer flowing from a tap seems strange to us.
The trend is catching on in Dallas, and we found four local haunts that have gotten the tap flow just right.
Best tap for wine Savor at Klyde Warren Park serves 16 wines on tap from barrels under the bar. We love the Saintsbury Pinot Noir ($13 a glass), which is a spicy black-cherry wine.

Best tap for a martini Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill has the finest martini fixings in North Dallas. The coolest part? The perfectly chilled 29-degree Grey Goose vodka comes from a tap, so you know it’s always the right temperature.

Best tap for tequila For the devout sippers (or shooters), the new Tacos and Tequila at the Quadrangle serves up from-the-tap Partida Blanco tequila at a cool 15 degrees. It pairs well with rojo shrimp tacos.

Best tap for craft cocktails What’s better than one liquor on tap? Four liquors on tap! So & So’s in Uptown offers a Grapefruit Rickey, Paloma, Pimm’s Cup and Jiminy Whiskers (whiskey, lime and simple syrup)--all crafted without lifting a bottle.
