Awash in flashing laser light, Glass Cactus' 2,000-square-foot dance floor pulses with DJ-spun beats when live entertainers aren’t hoarding the stage. In the bar, exposed brick and scarlet furniture set a more sultry vibe, while the two-story deck provides serene views of Lake Grapevine.
Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant and Club pairs sit-down dining with DJ-led dancing, creating an experience that's fun even beyond its well-loved dishes. From the menu, creamy hummus, stuffed grapes leaves, and meat pies are easily shareable with the whole table and showcase the chefs' use of rich flavors such as mint, oregano, sesame seeds, and garlic. They also skewer beef, chicken, shrimp, and veggies to create their signature fire-crisped kabobs. After dinner, guests can sidle over to the dance floor, where a DJ spins the latest hits and belly dancers often join in, swiveling their way around the room. On select nights, diners can learn how to salsa dance or write their life story in smoke rings from a hookah while the music plays.
Live music fills the air every night in Sambuca 360's futuristic lounge space, urging hips to sway with strains of everything from acoustic rock to high-energy dance music. The food is equally energetic—chefs craft globally influenced entrees and small plates such as lobster enchiladas in a poblano cream sauce and tempura-fried buca beignets stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto. Mixologists craft more than 30 creative cocktails—many of which are designed with low-calorie diets in mind—at a glowing, saffron-colored bar that touches the stage, allowing revelers to sip an agave-nectar margarita or mango-peach martini between cheered requests for the band to play a favorite tune or play in a favorite guitar tuning.
