When you think of power hour, do shivers shoot down your spine as your are taken back to the days at the frat house downing luke-warm shots of Natural Light on the minute mark? Shiver no more, my friend, for power hour will soon take on a new, more comforting (and decidedly classier) memory for you.
Morton’s, the long-time Dallas mainstay for a delicious steak and a to-die-for lobster has upped the ante for happy hour. Offering drinks and apps for a song (at least relative to other Morton’s prices) in the bar, Power Hour at Morton’s has quickly become a main contender in the “Best HH in Dallas” contest for me.
We’re talking quality HH here, people. Take a seat in the bar and order a dirty martini and their crab cake sliders and you’ll be forever in love. The wait staff is so incredibly friendly that you wonder if they mistook you for a celebrity and the laid-back luxury of the place makes you feel like one.
The drinks are pretty darn strong and you can down them like water (though I don’t recommend that). Order one of the Mortinis or a cocktail and see (double) what I mean after two. The service is quick so don’t bother ordering before you’re done with your previous drink.
Drink strength: 4.0
