Fraternal Order of Eagles (FOE)
One of the most fun places to stay cool in Dallas is FOE! Located in East Dallas near the Arboretum, the pool at FOE is open daily from noon until 9 PM for the small price of $5-$10, depending on what day you go! All of the pergolas are first come, first served, so be sure to get there early if you want one.
Also, on the most popular days (weekends), we recommend taking a Lyft as the parking lot can fill up and there’s no parking in the surrounding neighborhood.

Not a fan of cold water, even when the temps are high? Head to The W Dallas in Victory Park! Their outdoor pool is heated and open 7 days a week from dawn until dusk. The best part is that it’s an infinity pool overlooking the skyline. You can buy a day pass through ResortPass if you’re not a hotel guest or resident of The W Dallas - Victory.

We love The Statler for all of the different things this cool hotel has to offer. One of our faves is their summer events at Waterproof, the rooftop lounge and pool! If you plan to hit the pool enough, then consider a membership for $50/month or $500/year that includes express member entry for you and a guest, priority cabana reservations, and 15% off bottle service!
Wednesdays: Take a break from work and enjoy a yoga class at 12 pm via a $25 ticket.
Fridays: Starting at noon they’ll have food and drink specials.
Saturdays: From noon until 6 pm, they’ll have free entry and a live DJ.
Sundays: To round out the week, you do have to make a table reservation, but if you do, you’ll enjoy tunes by DJ Blake Ward.

The JadeWaters Resort Pool at the Hilton Anatole off of I-35 might just be the sweetest pool in Dallas! It is fun for Dallasites of all ages, from kids to adults.

Formerly the NYLO, the Canvas Hotel is home to one of the most famous views in the city! Their rooftop infinity pool and lounge has an amazing view of the Dallas skyline. Whether you’re a hotel guest or a local, The Gallery Rooftop Lounge is a great place to enjoy a delicious hand-grafted cocktail. Unfortunately, only hotel guests can actually get in the pool, but you can still go wearing a swimsuit and take advantage of the public lounge while getting a tan!
