Arlo Grey is located inside the new Line Hotel on Town Lake and it’s consistently full of both out-of-towners and locals. From the marble tables to the all-black bar, the interior is sleek and modern with an outdoor pool visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Take some time to try out the food, like the gnocchi or buffalo shortrib, before joining everyone attempting to cool off outside.
