We give our clientele a reason to stay because we are all about quality food, atmosphere, and entertainment.

Upscale Dallas Restaurant and Lounge

After being greeted by the doorman upon your arrival, you will enter the first set of double doors into a mini corridor that is surrounded by transparent glass waterfalls on each side. Dangling above from the aluminum plated ceiling is a crystal sphere chandelier that lights up that illuminates the corridor. Clientele will enter the venue through another set of red double doors that have octopus tentacles as door handles. The octopus symbolizes the ability to comfortably blend into its atmosphere, and that is exactly how we want our clientele to feel as soon as they open the doors and enter The Lobby of our upscale Dallas restaurant and lounge. 

The Lobby

As you first step foot into the venue and turn to the right you will see 2 VIP sections with red and gold couches facing each other with their own cedar wood table, and red ottomans. This area can see-outside the front of the venue though 1 sided transparent windows that have the ability to open up the entire front side of the venue during warm weather.  Our Dallas restaurant and lounge has a great atmosphere for taking photos. Located on the opposite side of this section is a standing photo station that is perfect for group shots, and has the ability to upload photos directly to your Instagram. As you step forward into the Lobby there is an additional VIP section to the right with a black leather couch featuring gold & black tables with blue ottomans.
