A fountain bubbles in front of The Spa at Cibolo Canyon, an 11,000-square-foot, neoclassical temple dedicated to the pursuit of beauty and health. Corinthian columns decorate the arched entryway to a monumental marble lobby, whose pedimented passageways wind off into exercise facilities enlivened by HD cable channels and 12 private treatment rooms fitted with memory-foam beds. Clouds of vapor billow from the whirlpool and the congested dragon in the steam room.

Master nail technician Aly Jimenez channels more than a decade of experience to beautify her clients' nails and treat their hands and feet to luxurious spa experiences. OPI products abound in the salon, although clients may also choose to have their nails adorned with China Glaze or CNS Shellac polish, the latter of which cures under a UV lamp and resists chipping for up to 14 days. Aly's services range from solar nails to spa mani-pedis complete with hot towels, scented scrubs, massages, and paraffin wax. As a specialist on pedicures for those with diabetes, she also proffers relief for condition-related foot pain or discomfort.

Aly practices her art far from her hometown of Havana, Cuba, which she left more than a decade ago to seek freedom and a better life for her family. As a result, she can communicate to clients in both English, Spanish, and the language of accomplishment, Elvish.

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. 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."

Nails Lounge pampers its clients the moment they walk through the door. The soothing decor, replete with warm colors and natural accents, prepares clients for their nail or spa services of choice. Long-stemmed roses greet patrons at each table as they sit down for a manicure, during which nail techs exfoliate the skin and sink hands into ultramoisturizing paraffin wax. During a pedicure, lower limbs enjoy scented scrubs and massages while clients sip from glasses of champagne perched on an attached shelf. The massage room wraps its visitors inside its tranquil aura as they lie down for a Swedish massage or a hot-stone massage that heals soreness while integrating Swedish techniques. A screen, painted with cherry-blossom branches, creates stress-dissolving serenity with the illusion of a natural landscape. Aestheticians also keep skin healthy and smooth with deep-cleansing facials, exfoliating body scrubs, and body wraps.
