Beyond the glowing plate glass of the Dallas City Performance Hall, the Dallas Chamber Symphony is often hard at work devising ever-more-intriguing ways to welcome people into the world of symphonic music. Its director often places the symphony's talents against the canvas of live silent-film screenings, dance performances, and other media, along with the more usual work of pairing well-known pieces with contemporary compositions. Beyond concerts, the group also reaches out to the community by sponsoring musical competitions, holding pre-concert talks, and tossing staff-paper airplanes into open windows.
A flat-screen TV casts its photons upon leather couches that would make clouds jealous with their fluffiness. A coffee table anchors the spot, and it's only a small corner of the bar and grill. Beyond this bastion of basement-like coziness, Sharky's Bar & Grill houses more high-definition big screens, nine pool tables just waiting for the next bold belly flop, and those two other classic crowd-pleasers: food and drink. The kitchen staff prepares pub fare such as burgers, brats, and pizza. They also serve frosty beverages on the brand-new patio or invite guests to play bar games such as darts, NTN trivia, poker, and shuffleboard. Professional hockey-, football-, baseball-, and soccer-watching parties occupy Sharky's busy events calendar nearly every weekday, while weekly karaoke and pool nights let patrons show off their singing skills or well-honed eye-hand coordination.
Savour Kitchen & Cocktail Room serves everything from decadent 24-ounce prime, dry-aged, bone-in rib eyes to exciting shrimp- and cheese-stuffed jalapeños. Duck-confit quesadillas, with serrano peppers, tomatillo salsa, and cumin-infused crème fraîche, for example, turn a bar-food staple on its head. The chefs also drizzle sour-cherry compote over pork chops and leave crackling pork shank covered in spicy barbecue sauce like the models in the first scene of a commercial for laundry detergent. That same inventive spirit shines on the cocktail menu. The limoncello collins, a reimagining of the tom collins, calls in the tart liqueur to complement biting sprigs of mint and a mist of carbonation. Thursday through Saturday, customers can also enjoy adult contemporary light rock in the bar.
Nestled inside a sprawling yellow house first built in 1963, Mapleshade Spa retains much of its structure’s original charm. Out front, a set of wind chimes and a swing rock gently in the breeze above a huge wraparound porch. Garden fountains send up spouts of water amid colorful, aromatic thickets of rosemary, thyme, mint, lavender, and roses scattered beneath the boughs of large trees.
This bucolic setting surrounds Mapleshade Spa’s eight treatment rooms, where aestheticians set to work pampering their clientele with botanical skincare products from Pevonia and Éminence Organics. To account for different skin types and concerns, the staff offers more than 10 types of facials—all of which can be performed outside if desired—and an array of body treatments, including massages and body wraps. Stylists trim and highlight tresses in the hair salon while nail techs brush Shellac polish onto digits in both public and private nailcare areas. Mapleshade Spa frequently hosts spa parties to celebrate special events or provide a day away from clingy parole officers.
