1. RESTORATION HARDWARE
A rooftop restaurant where the vibes are nothing short of boujee, elegant and dreamy. This spot calls for dressing to the NINES, spending a pretty penny (but so worth it), and makes for the most insta-worthy photos. Restoration Hardware overlooks the ever-so lovely cityscape scene of Dallas so you're in for some eye candy as well 10 outta 10 dishes and cocktails. RUN, don't walk to make your reservations for this Dallas dime!
2. THE FRENCH ROOM
This entire experience is a whole VIBE that everyone must try at least once! If you're anything like Team Love List and love it as much as we do, you'll be obsessed after the first visit and will only keep coming back! We'll spill the tea...the prestigious French Room is located inside the Adolphus Hotel in the heart of Downtown Dallas! It is truly the fanciest spot in Dallas so yes, you will need to dress your absolute best. Also the whole room is SO photogenic so if you don't take an instagram pic did you even go? You're in for a treat with the newly dropped afternoon menu complete with tea sandwiches, scones and pastries paired with loose leaf teas from local purveyor, @zaktitea. Grab your besties, secure your reservation and celebrate with the gals at The French Room!

4. EDITH'S FRENCH BISTRO
📍Plano, Richardson and Allen, TX

Did we mention that this rooftop overlooks the famous Dallas eyeball?!
This Tiffany blue bistro sitting right off Fitzhugh Ave is sure to have caught your eye a time or two while driving to Uptown! The adorable spot is small but mighty! You'll almost always need a reservation since space is limited, the food is delicious, and the cocktails will have you coming back time after time! The interior is just as cute as the exterior with an old school diner bistro-like bar where you can order a drink or an appetizer! A boozy beverage is a MUST when the awaited galentines night comes around, so choose from one of their hand crafted cocktails, a glass of wine or a cold beer. And just in case you prefer to spend your celebration for the girls during the day, their brunch is GOLDEN!
7. BISTRO 31
Spotted: a culinary gem located in Highland Park serving European cuisine AND chic decor. This lovely 2 in 1 spot is nothing short of upscale, dreamy and luxurious. With the custom Murano chandeliers and white oak herringbone floors, coming in casual is out of the question...fancy vibes all the way! Their menu captivates French, Italian, and Spanish flavors that will make your mouth water at just the sight of each plate. The upstairs seating area called Lounge 31 is so boujee and makes for a fabulous place to raise a glass to the ✨girls✨!
Treat you and the girls to that much needed spa and self-care day! Remember how we said the only status update people receive from you is thriving?

They offer services from manicures, pedicures and plant-based facials to waxing and tinting. Take a trip to Verbena aka your relaxation sanctuary for the day for that well-deserved pampering.
A swanky cocktail lounge awaits you and your girl gang this galentines day. Jettison's attached to Houndstooth Coffee is the perfect escape for an unbothered evening with your gal pals while sipping on Japanese-inspired cocktails. If muted and moody is more your vibe for an occasion, then Jettison's has your name written all over and will certainly make for a memorable night with the ladies.
