Tucked away in the historic LTV Towers across from the gigantic eyeball in downtown Dallas sits a new concept that brings southern classics accompanied by a range of intriguing cocktails all set in a clean and inviting space. I’m talking about Grayson Social, which plans to bring the first social club concept to Dallas via a press release:

Set in the historic LTV Towers in Downtown Dallas, Grayson Social boasts a Southern-chic atmosphere that includes an expansive bar, outdoor patio, dining room and private dining space. Vice President Food & Beverage and Procurement, Darlene Marcello, has reinvented Southern cuisine for the restaurant, providing guests a fresh, innovative twist to traditional dishes.

Grayson Social’s menu highlights include White Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding, with ancho Chile caramel; Chicken Fried Quail and Waffles, chantilly cream, white gravy, maple syrup, seasonal berries; Pulled Chicken Poutine, hand cut fries, pepper gravy, pimento cheese; and Mushroom Dusted Baby Trout, Southern pea + escarole ragout, roast beets, huitlacoche puree.

Heavy on spirited sips, Grayson Social’s bar line-up showcases Texan renditions of classic American cocktails and offers plenty of beer and wine. Updated seasonally, Grayson Social’s beverage menu will always feature a cocktail du jour, however the real crowd pleasers are the extended daily happy hour specials and friendly service. Guests are expected to make themselves feel right at home. Happy hour is available Monday – Friday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Valet parking is complimentary with validation.

More on the social club component that Grayson Social promises to offer via a press release:

An upstairs members-only sitting room is available by reservation, and is outfitted with sofas, rocking chairs, a flat screen television and free Wi-Fi.

While the restaurant is open to all, a separate club component provides exclusive member perks including invitations to private events, preferred seating and special members-only pricing. The first social club of its kind in downtown, Grayson Social offers a new socializing option where loyalty has benefits.

Yes, that is house made jerky atop a bourbon cocktail.


Cocktails are the name of the game as everything is made in house and the attention to detail is impeccable.


Nothing says southern cooking like house made biscuits from scratch.


Like previously mentioned, attention to detail. Perfect roast on the marshmallow will get your in the spirit for the colder weather.


Grayson Social is now open so make a reservation for dinner/brunch or grab a seat at the beautiful bar!

My meal was complimentary and my thoughts and opinions are those of my own.
