  • Rocky's Bar & Grill
    With its weathered wooden bar, smattering of flat-screen televisions, and many tables and booths, Rocky's Bar & Grill exudes a thoroughly laid-back atmosphere where people can feel comfortable lingering over a drink with friends. The cooks embrace this same spirit as they prepare a menu of American and Tex-Mex finger foods as well as heartier meals. The selection includes shareable orders of cheese fries, nachos with chicken, and fried pickles, as well as burgers topped with everything from mushrooms and swiss cheese to bacon and jalapeño. Although the grill features two pool tables and four bouncy castles in the back room, it also keeps guests entertained by hosting special events throughout the week, such as poker nights, pub trivia, karaoke, and live bands.

  • Alamo Drafthouse Richardson
    Since its origins as a converted parking garage, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its auditoriums, even gaining a following among Hollywood legends; Quentin Tarantino has been known to host five-day movie marathons at Alamo. The theater has earned that reputation by making moviegoing a personal experience, from the menu of handcrafted snacks and locally brewed beer to the completely ad-free presentations before shows. Alamo?s ninja servers pick up written food and drink orders throughout the movie and serve moviegoers directly at their seat. The staff enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy by kicking out any offenders, falling just short of yanking them from their seats with a giant's shepherd's crook. Both first-run blockbusters and classics are projected onto Alamo's silver screens in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Meanwhile, surround speakers immerse audiences in the cinematic soundscape, whether they're seated in one of the expansive theaters afforded to blockbuster reels or the more intimate spaces reserved for indie films wound around tiny bobbins. Despite Alamo's vow of silence, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and actors, directors, and other celebrities often attend special screenings to lead in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have led to acclaim for Alamo from publications such as 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."

  • Cloud 9 Hookah Lounge
    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.

  • Zesty Mexican Grill & Bar
    Zesty Mexican Grill & Bar veers away from the path beaten by typical Tex-Mex restaurants. Instead, the chefs zero in on regional Mexican recipes, specializing in dishes from Veracruz along with unique vegetarian options. Take the Mexican pizzas: the chefs start by baking?not frying?a flour tortilla for the cracker-crisp base, before topping it with a house-made, spicy tomato sauce, cheese, and brisket. For the non-meat-eaters, the Veracruz potato cakes, loaded with spicy jalapenos, roasted corn, and cheddar cheese?and served with salsa and pickled jalapeno?might even give meat-loving dining companions something to think about. Regardless of the guest's chosen entree, each meal begins with fresh chips and salsa, which pair nicely with a cold draft beer or margarita.

  • Fox and Hound Group
    A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads. While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
