In Dallas, age ain’t nothin’ but a number. Visually, the maintained face of forty something may look youthful but plenty of venues get that shot taking and loud music has taken a back seat for this set. Raise your glass to one of these more quiet spots where conversations trump any loud DJ-ed outing.

A part of the Ritz Carlton hotel, this is the spot to toast with champagne, The Macallen or a glass from the extensive wine list. Marbled in-wall bar lighting and regal couches welcome everything from cowboy casual to cocktail. Caution: Beware of cougars.

Famous for their wine specials and martini menu this is possibly the last place in town where last place where live lounge music still lives. Snuggle into a plush wingback and be transported to a time of old school opulence.
