Going out in Deep Ellum can be a little overwhelming with so many fun places to choose from. While you may already have your favorite hang out spot, I’d like to recommend a freshly reopened tequila bar and taco concept that has an energetic vibe. I am talking about the famous Federales.

I have been long awaiting this restaurant’s Texas debut! We decided to check out this spot after seeing several reviews from bloggers on both TikTok and Instagram. Upon arrival, you will understand it’s popularity — even on a weekday it was full of people ready to enjoy the atmosphere. Even though it was very busy when we went, we had no problems grabbing drinks at the bar! I would recommend going earlier in the evening if you are hoping to try their creative tacos and Mexican-inspired menu as most of their tables were full when we got there.

The fun trendy concept at this bar is that their shots are served in ice glasses that you can throw at a bell near the front of the restaurant. Since we were only visiting for drinks and to try our luck at their famous bell, we headed straight to their large bar and our shots were ready fast. Everyone enjoyed throwing their glasses at the bell, and we had fun cheering for other people.

The urban inspired decor at this restaurant was such a fun concept, and it was a great place to hang out. We really enjoyed the entire restaurant and will be heading back soon to enjoy the exceptional service and the food that looked amazing.
