Fogueira Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse
Do you know what pairs well with a Brazillian Steak? A cocktail, of course! Fogueira Gaucha has custom Brazilian cocktails that look like a dream.

Samba on over to Foguiera during your stay!
Cork and Barrel Craft Kitchen + Microbrewery
Is this a cocktail or a science experiment? We think Bill Nye would be impressed by the cocktail creations at the Cork & Barrel. We are certainly in awe of this Carrie Bradshaw cocktail with a citrus bubble! They have handcrafted drinks that are sure to wow guests. After looking over the menu, we are unsure what to order because everything looks so appetizing. We especially love the clever names like Ross & Rachel, Heaven Sent, and Texas Sun!
The Ruby Hotel
Lounge with a libation in your hand at The Ruby Hotel. They have a whimsical bar with an outdoor patio and they serve up superb drinks. They have a classic Ruby Old-Fashioned, and Italian spirits and a drink called the Jamaican Farewell with Havana Clasico Rum, Rum Haven, pineapple, lime, and Ginger Beer. If you’re looking for something different you can enjoy a zero-proof drink of Watermelon Limeade with cold-pressed watermelon juice, fresh lime juice, and sparkling water.
When in Texas, you get a Bloody Mary with a BBQ rib adorning it! This hearty Bloody Mary from Liberty BBQ will satisfy your taste buds and fill your stomach. In addition to the Bloody Mary masterpiece, they have house cocktails like the Liberty Peach Tea, Strawberry Jalapeño Paloma, and the Trinity River Trash Can Punch!
This locally owned spot is the place to go for a patio and a custom cocktail. They mix up lush libations.

Alcove has killer margs and specialty drinks like the Effen Berry Refresher, Dragonberry Mojito, and Absolut Limeade. They have Happy Hour Specials all day Monday and Tuesday-Friday 3-7 pm.
Cocktails for a cause? We can cheers to that!

They also have plenty of other drinks to order like their PB&J Mule, their Diva Martini, and their Hampton Iced Tea. You can enjoy Happy Hour Monday-Friday 4 pm-7 pm.
HopDoddy Burger BAr
We’ll take a House Frozen Margarita with a side of Parmesan Truffle Fries!
