An apple martini at Hunter's Lounge was too sweet and fruity to really be enjoyable. The cherries did not add much.

First review
 
There are two bars at the Omni Dallas Hotel. The Wine Thief is located in an alcove and has a more intimate setting. Hunter’s Lounge is more traditional in shape and larger. Hunter’s includes a number of TVs and backs up to a restaurant. Both bars serve beer, wine and mixed drinks. The bars have slightly different food menus though one can order from either menu at either bar.

The Omni Hotel was built in 1989. It has 12 stories and is in a fairly isolated setting; it’s highly visible from all directions. The Omni is more upscale then midscale but does not quite reach luxurious. Nevertheless, the building is accommodating and tastefully appointed. It’s also convenient to DFW airport and is next to Interstate 635. There is ample free parking in a garage next door.

The bars are rarely crowded unless there is a convention or private event at the hotel. Wine Thief is the better option because it’s smaller, cozier and the service is more attentive. The drinks are superior when Ernesto is mixing them. He is a true mixologist with a gift for making an excellent dry martini, light, cool, and smooth. A whisky sour with Woodford Reserve Bourbon and a Long Island Iced Tea also were enjoyable but not quite at the stellar level of the martini. Even though Hunter’s Lounge is part of the same hotel, the experience here was below average. An apple martini was much too sweet, more like a candy than a cocktail and another martini was served with a submerged olive and plastic fork toothpick even though it was explicitly not requested. Also, Hunter’s is not as comfortable a place to hang out. The room is too big and impersonal and the staff less welcoming. While these bars are not destination type places, Wine Thief is a reasonable choice for a drink after work when in the area. It’s a pleasant place to relax and the drink quality is good.
