Foursquare Tips

  • If you show up too late on a weekend night to this Deep Ellum haunt, you won't get in. The drinks are so good here guests don't leave.
  • Barman and owner Gabe Sanchez will always remember your drink, just tell him what you like and he'll mix you a tasty drink, from a jasmine tea-infused vodka cocktail to a pumpkin pie-esque rum drink.
  • Thank god that you're at the best bar in Dallas.
  • You are not seeing double, Gabe's brother is his double...
  • Try a shot of Jameson with a pickle juice back. Yum.
  • Try all the infused liquor on their own, then get creative and mix & match to make your own flavors. The possibilities are endless with the alchemists they have behind the bar.
  • Order a Jameson shot with pickle juice back! SERIOUSLY!!!!
  • Buy DUG a drink! Look for QR code on bar.
  • Try the strawberry vodka. It's like an orgasm in your mouth, without the cleanup.
  • One of the few places in Deep Ellum to drink like a grown up. My vote...Ford's gin rocks with Little Walter on the hi-fi. Plus, Gabe's the best bartender in Texas.
  • Dallas Observer dubbed Black Swan Saloon "Best Place to Get a Crash Course in Tincutures" in 2012 for Best Best of Dallas
  • Uncle Gabe's Gatorade... Try it!
  • On my list of Best Mixology Cocktail Bars in Dallas! To get an amazing drink you must find Gabe, the owner/mixologist, then simply tell him what flavors you like. He will take it from there.
  • Get the spicy pineapple drink
  • Have Gabe make you something infused with cucumber. YUMMY!
  • Jameson with a ginger beer back...straighten up and fly right.
  • I totally want to make out with their pecan vanilla bean bourbon old-fashioned.
  • Order a cocktail once and it's yours for life. All you have to do is walk through the door and he's already working on it.
  • Looking for a kick-you-in-the-face delicious concoction? This is your place!
  • Order all of your drinks from Jake. Do it.
