Hard Rock Cafe
Celebrate the season with spirit (and spirits) at the Hard Rock Cafe, which is offering a lineup of five limited-time-only cocktails for the holidays. Served in mason jars, the drinks have fun names like She's My Apple Pie, Southern Jam, Bohemian Rasp-Sody, Rock You Like a Coconut and Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot. If you want to take the jar home with you, the cocktails are $14.99 apiece. If you just want the drink, they're $11.99. The drinks will be available through Jan. 3. 2211 N. Houston St., Dallas. hardrock.com/cafes/dallas.
This just-opened spot from chef Tim Byres (Smoke) has a strong American theme that informs its design and menu. Like any good American restaurant should, the Theodore offers a happy hour -- two, in fact -- on weekdays in its bar and patio areas. The drinks on special all bear the names of famous U.S. monuments and cost $6: the Gila Cliff, Devils Tower, Tonto (think: mule), El Morro (think: margarita) and Chaco Canyon. In the happy hour zone, you can also get half-price pizzas, which will cost you $7-$7.50. Hours are 3 to 7 p.m. and again from 9-11 p.m. The restaurant is inside NorthPark Center on the first floor between Macy's and Nordstrom off of Park Lane. 8687 N. Central Expressway, Dallas. thetheodore.com.
With a name like this, you can just about count on a daily happy hour. And, thankfully, there is one at this new Harwood district eating and drinking establishment. Weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m., get $1 off all beer, wine and liquor. On Saturday, the special is $1 off beers from 4 to 7; Sundays, you can have $1 off beers all day. 2616 Olive St., Dallas. happiesthourdallas.com.

This Deep Ellum hideout was opened by a pair of musicians, and as such hosts live music events several times a week. Happy hour is a long one -- from the time the bar opens (4 p.m. on weekdays, noon on weekends) till 8 p.m. every day. During happy hour, drinks are $1 off their regular price, with the exception of wines by the glass, which are $3 off. Twilite also has an all-the-time special: a 16-ounce PBR and a shot of well whiskey for $5. 2640 Elm St., Dallas. thetwilitelounge.com.
