$45 for a Lounge Reservation for 10 or More and $20 Worth of Finger Fare ($95 Value)
Lush lounge sections seat parties of up to 20 on plush sofas illuminated by soft candlelight. Guests can bring decorations for their party; however, outside food items other than cupcakes or cake are as forbidden as tickling a crocodile's funny bone unless parties pay a $25 fee. With a $20 credit toward Daiqui-Ritas' bar menu, guests can enjoy bone-in or boneless wings in flavors such as mild, hot, mango habanero, and orange glaze ($6 for six), boudin sausage links ($5 for two), or french fries ($4). Partiers should be mindful of the dress code, and bottle service is available for an additional fee.
Daiqui-Ritas Bar & Lounge
Creative team TJ and Merlina Porter, both Clear Lake natives, joined forces with JeMarr Rivers to open a bar and lounge that offered an upscale, sophisticated nightlife scene. As of December 2011, JeMarr has trekked on as the sole owner while still maintaining the luxe atmosphere that draws crowds for nightly dancing and partying. An expansive interior paves the way for individuals or large parties, with a full reservation and VIP area for nights on the town or special occasions. The full bar slings beer, liquor, frequent specials, and 13 flavors of daiquiris, many of which are made with Everclear so that they can be used as a torch in the event of a power outage. During the week, live entertainment including jazz bands, standup comedy, and poetry readings fill the soundscape, and DJs spin tunes almost every night. Cultivating a truly carefree yet mature atmosphere, Daiqui-Ritas often hands out complimentary door prizes, which patrons can enjoy as they watch any of the lounge's five big screen TVs.
