Plano is home to a number of bars that are perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a first date or a multi-bottle gathering with friends. The next time you’re looking for a new watering hole to try, we’ve got you covered – these six bars in Plano always deliver a good time.
Katy Trail Ice House
One of the best casual bars in Plano is the Katy Trail Ice House. The large beer garden is a popular outdoor space for day drinking. Grab a spot at one of the shaded picnic tables and sip on Texas draft beers or a refreshing frozen margarita. Weekends pull the biggest crowds as hungry locals flock to order brisket, ribs, turkey and sausages cooked on oak wood smokers. Barbecue is served Thursday thru Sunday each week until it’s all gone.
32 Degrees Rooftop Ice Bar
For a drink with an incredible view, head to 32 Degrees Rooftop Ice Bar. The third-floor bar overlooks historic downtown Plano and is known for serving perfectly-chilled beer poured at a 32-degree temperature. A strip of ice running down the center of the bar keeps your drink cold. Unwind after a long day with live music on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday nights or party it up on the weekend with a DJ spinning Top 40 hits.
Who doesn’t love a good dive bar? Inwood Tavern is a friendly, no-pretense watering hole where you can kick back and enjoy cheap mixed cocktails, wine and beer. With an all-day, every-day happy hour and rotating drink specials, there’s an affordable beverage for every taste. Sit outside on the patio or hang out by the bar and put on your favorite song on the jukebox.
If good music is more important to you than a fancy drink, The Goat has you covered. While most bars in Plano don’t open until 11am or later, this dark joint opens at 7am every day except Sunday, sells cheap long necks and features blues music every night of the week. Monday is Jukebox Night, Wednesday is Karaoke and Friday and Saturday nights are dedicated to performances by various local artists.
Holy Grail Pub
Holy Grail Pub is one of the most unique bars in Plano, having an Old World atmosphere, wide variety of craft beer, and made-from-scratch European/American food. Happy hour is every weekday afternoon and lasts for four hours, featuring discounted wells drinks, drafts and house wines. Indulge in one of their multi-course beer dinners to celebrate a special occasion.
The Ginger Man
Located in Uptown in a repurposed two-story house, The Ginger Man is a fixture of Plano’s drinking scene. The pub and tavern has more than 70 taps lining the wall and 100 bottled beers in the fridge. Bring a group of friends and relax on their leather couches or play a few rounds of darts.
