View from a Bar: Lobby Bar, Four Seasons Dallas at Las Collinas

By: Anthony Head


It's actually properly called Terrace Lounge but everyone calls it the "Lobby Bar." And besides, this Four Seasons is actually in Irving, not Dallas, but no one quibbles with that. At least no one I've heard so far while watching said lobby fill up with the eager crowds of TexSom 2013. And trust me: This bar, the Lobby Bar, is the power bar of TexSom.

Still panting from the soul-crushing drive up I-35 from San Marcos, I sip my chilled Dr. Hermann 2011 H Riesling, Mosel, Germany. Candied pears and mineral crispness fill the mid-palate as I settle myself at the Lobby Bar and survey the scene. Let the show begin.
