Hotspot: The Spirit Grille

Dimly lit and located behind the Wells Fargo near Tom Thumb, Las Colinas’ Spirit Grille feels of earlier, simpler times, while still maintaining an abundance of contemporary resources.

Right across the street from the Four Seasons, Spirit Grille has a golf-themed menu and a full bar.  With nine television sets for all your sports-watching needs, pool tables, arcade and a video casino – this place seems to have it all.

There are typically 10 beers on tap; in honor of Oktoberfest, right now this includes Rahr & Sons, a German family beer brewed locally in Fort Worth.

Michael Volosen, a Spirit Grille regular, entertains the idea that the place caters to a young, professional sort of crowd.  Wait-staff member Jason tells us, “It’s a Cheers kind of bar, a neighborhood one.”

Spirit Grille is one of the few bars in the area which still allows its guests to smoke inside, so that may affect your decision either to frequent the place, or steer clear of it.  If you’re of the former persuasion, there’s a cigarette machine in the back.

Though well of age, I don’t really drink (or smoke), but I enjoyed my time there.  Volosen and I split an order of the Grille’s queso, which was a bit spicier than we expected.  The bar has a laid-back atmosphere, a perfect place to be after a particularly long, draining day.

Note: You must be 21 or older; you will be carded upon sitting down in the bar.  If you decide it’s your scene, maybe it’ll be that  bar where everybody knows your name.
