Unlike wheelbarrows, bars are great places to get together with friends. For $15, today's Groupon gets you $35 worth of haute-hip bar fare and drinks (not valid for alcohol) at Bella Bar & Restaurant's Uptown location. The eatery and drinkery is a place where scenesters go to see and see themselves being seen at the seeing scene. This deal can be combined with special events and promotions, like ladies' night and gum-caught-in-my-hair night.

Bella is a pleasant middle ground between tired Irish pubs like Cormac of O'Cloverleaves and hyper-high-class joints like Monocle Libation Dispensary and Jousting Range. Brought from New York by Misters and helpless bromantics Tony and Peach, Bella keeps the menu fashionably minimalist. Spring for a roasted-tomato tart to start, puff pastried with roasted tomatoes and warm goat cheese ($12), or get off the meataholic wagon just this one night for a pepper-crusted New York strip steak with Abruzzo potatoes ($28). Pastas like linguine in clam sauce or chicken Alfredo (both $18) corner one end of the menu, while desserts like gelato with espresso ($8) handle things on the other side. There's even a stripped-down late-night menu available Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. to restore your will to rule the dance floor.


The Dallas Observer featured Bella, also awarding it Best Restaurant Bar Scene 2009. Bella was also featured on NBC DFW, Dallas Morning News, and DailyCandy:

  • Fabulous service coupled with exceptional food served late night is found at Bella. – Annie Potasznik, NBC Local News
  • …Short's cooking blots out the entire scene. Heavy on salads and sandwiches, there are also standout starters...It's not a difficult menu; there's nothing to deconstruct here. Short's kitchen just executes with great skill. – Dave Faries, Dallas Observer
  • It seems the most unlikely place to find straightforward, serious, from-the-heart cooking. But at Bella Restaurant and Bar...chef Christopher Short is using great ingredients to their best advantage, focusing on pure flavors; his cooking is creative and fun, yet refreshingly confident in its simplicity. – Leslie Brenner, Dallas Morning News
  • The chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream is, well, orgasmic... – DailyCandy

Four Yelpers give Bella 3.5 stars, and 88% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • The scallop salad and the seafood trio were incredible. The desserts were really good too…The restaurant is beautiful. – alex32187, Urbanspoon
