Located on Main Street of Grapevine, Texas, D'Vine Wine treats visitors to countless varieties of wine paired with savory cheese and charcuterie plates. In the tasting and dining area, honeycombed wine racks and wooden barrels line the earth-toned walls, allowing visitors to imagine they've been swept away to the rustic cottage of a Tuscan vintner or the panic room of a billionaire. Guests sip house-made sauvignon blanc, malbec, and fruit-infused wine, while customers consult with wine representatives on creating a personalized label for any occasion.

From its first days as a converted parking garage to its time as a host for Quentin Tarantino's five-day movie marathons, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its atypical auditoriums. The theaters subvert the industry standard by offering locally brewed beer and fine wines, a rotating menu of handcrafted snacks and desserts, and an advertisement-free experience. A long table stretches in front of every row of seats, enabling waiters to unobtrusively pick up written food orders throughout the night.

An even more refreshing break from the standard moviegoing experience is the strict no-talking, no-texting policy enforced by Alamo Drafthouse staff and an enormous shepherd's crook?with a few notable exceptions. For example, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and appearances by actors, directors, and other film celebrities append screenings with in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have helped build Alamo Drafthouse's reputation among cinephiles across the country, leading to nods from Entertainment Weekly, which called it ?one of America's most fanatically unique moviegoing experiences,? and Wired, which opined that it "might just be the coolest movie theater in the world."

Alamo Drafthouse's schedule balances first-run blockbusters with silver-screen classics, projecting them in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Surround sound submerges audiences in the cinematic landscape, whether they're seated in one of the intimate theaters reserved for indie screenings or the more expansive spaces afforded to Hollywood epics.

At Cloud 9 Hookah Lounge, patrons recline in a low-lit room full of comfy cushions and couches as they puff sweet-smelling tobacco from bubbling water pipes. They can relax as they exhale tendrils and clouds in flavors such as coconut, mango, mint, and jasmine, or they can experience a rush of citrus by inhaling lemon or orange tobacco or by smoking from a hollowed-out pineapple. Guests can enjoy the lounge during the week, or come on weekends for dancing and a live DJ.

Friendly, attentive staff help patrons by making flavor recommendations or blending ingredients into mind-blowing cocktails such as the orange-peach-vanilla Dreamsicle, or cinnamon-peach-vanilla Peach Cobbler. Visitors who pay an extra fee can rent out the secluded VIP room, a private paradise full of wall-to-wall black and white sofas.

Bavarian Grill

Served beside tiny pasta dumplings, the golden-fried Jäger Schnitzel looks even more massive than usual. Rumor has it that the mushroom-topped schnitzel is one of largest in Texas, so it should come as no surprise that it's the most popular dish at Bavarian Grill, an eatery that twice won GermanDeli.com’s designation as the Best German restaurant in America. Such recognition yields lofty expectations, which Bavarian Grill meets with ease thanks to multiple menus brimming with authentic south German cuisine. Guests will find the Jäger Schnitzel on the dinner menu, but 18 other types of schnitzels show up for Schnitzel Fest, a seasonal celebration held once each year. Oktoberfest, on the other hand, seems to be celebrated year round, fueled by a hefty list of German beers. Add in live accordion players and a plate of bratwurst-and-salmon-stuffed mushroom caps, and it’d be easy to imagine yourself transported to Germany, especially if your visit happens to coincide with National Wear Lederhosen Day.

The Allen Wickers presents a menu that mixes Mexican, Texican, and a bit of London broil within a lavishly furnished public house and grill decked out in plush leather and austere stone. Named one of the top 101 sports bars in the country by CNN, the tavern boasts more than a dozen beers on tap at the black-lacquer bar, a roaring real-wood fireplace, and a loyalty to its London calling expressed in nearly endless soccer viewings. As partners with FC Dallas fan club The Inferno, the restaurant takes a more active role in its football fandom, taking part in tailgating ceremonies and commanding the wait staff to serve burgers, meatloaf, and cottage pies without using their hands.

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.
