All Cocktails. All $5. All Day Friday!

The work week is almost over, and we can all enjoy another glorious summer weekend in Texas! The weekends are always hopping at The Nodding Donkey, but they get even sweeter on Fridays when all of our regular menu cocktails are just $5 each. It’s the perfect opportunity to try something new – or just get a couple of your all-time favorite Dallas drink specials.

Not sure what is on the menu? Here are a few of our favorites: 

·      Summer Beer: Ahhhh…when it’s summertime, we love this refreshing drink! Shock Top Beer, Grey Goose L’Orange Vodka, and lemonade are blended to perfection as the happier – and more fun! – alternative to plain jane lemonade.

·      Old Fashioned: Channel your inner Don Draper and order an Old Fashioned. Ours is made with George Dickel Rye Whiskey, a splash of cherry, and bitters.

·      Moscow Mule: Another summertime favorite, the mule is a blend of ginger beer and Grey Goose Original. Light, refreshing, and comfortable, you can’t go wrong with this drink.

·      Bombay Sour: Looking for something different? Go with a Bombay Sour. Bombay Sapphire gin, Fleur Elderflower liqueur, a splash of lemon, and simple syrup rise to the occasion and blend to perfection.

·      Top Shelf Margarita: The quintessential Texas summer drink. Ours is made of Casa Noble premium tequila, agave, and fresh lime juice, all served over ice. It’s a mainstay in our Dallas restaurant and bar for a reason.

These are just a few of the incredible cocktails available at The Nodding Donkey Greenville! Enjoy them any day of the week, but remember, Fridays all menu cocktails are $5!

The Nodding Donkey Greenville is the perfect place for your next happy hour, lunch, dinner with friends, or even private party. Don’t forget that The Nodding Donkey has an event space that is dedicated to your event, giving you an exclusive party with all the comforts, service, and great food you have come to know and love from The Nodding Donkey.

Craft Brews to Try at The Nodding Donkey!

Spring has sprung. March Madness is in full swing. The weather is uh-mazing. It’s time to get to The Nodding Donkey Greenville Ave. this week to enjoy great food, drinks, and basketball!

When you come into D Magazine’s Readers’ Choice for Best Sports Bar in Dallas, you’ll instantly see that we’ve got a plethora of amazing craft beers, right on tap. Whether you want an old favorite, or are looking for something new, there is something for everyone. Here are a few to try:

·      Texas Ale Project – Fire Ant Funeral: A local Dallas brewery, Texas Ale Project is the first brewery in Texas to start from the ground up since the late 1800s. T.A.P. as it is commonly called, combines the art of brewing with the highest quality ingredients to incite the best possible flavor. Fire Ant Funeral was one of the first brews to come out of this local Dallas, Texas Brewery – and one of the best so far! An all American Amber Ale, Fire Ant Funeral combines 7 different malts that create a rich, full-bodied ale.

·      Community Beer Company – Mosaic IPA: Mosaic put Community Beer Company on the map with the development of this full-bodied, yet not overpowering India Pale Ale. The name – Mosaic – comes from the use of a new hop called Mosaic, giving it a raw, hoppy flavor that is surprisingly well balanced. Community Beer is brewed right here in Downtown Dallas.

·      Peticolas Brewing Company – Velvet Hammer: Velvet Hammer is a favorite here at The Nodding Donkey because of its malty sweetness, balanced bite, and floral undertones. It’s complex and unique, with a dark – almost ruby – color. Everything a good Imperial Red Ale should be! Located right here in Dallas, Peticolas is consistently recognized as one of the best breweries in Dallas.
