Chic Dallas hotel romances couples with Valentine's Day lineup
Love is in the air, especially at The Statler. If you're looking to set someone's heart aflutter this Valentine's Day, the retro-chic hotel has a trio of truly romantic options.
Planning to flame the fires of love (and the oven) with a handmade meal at home later? Then start out at Bourbon & Banter, where $50 will get each couple two craft cocktails topped with customizable sugar paper printed with the photo of your choice. You can also pen sweet nothings on a personal message sealed with wax, and end with boozy macarons. Bourbon & Banter will be open regular business hours on February 14, from 4 pm-2 am, and you can make a reservation here.
Prefer to leave the cooking to the professionals? Fine China will do all the impressive hard work in the kitchen with a special prix-fixe menu just for V-Day. Start with Togarashi grilled ahi tuna, then your choice of Fine China slaw, blue crab and ginger bisque, or the Electrified Lobster Claw. Main courses include a teriyaki-grilled wagyu strip steak, cardamom pistachio-crusted sea bass, and sweet and sour duck. End on a sweet note with the choice of sesame panna cotta, kaffir lime cheesecake, or a wasabi and dark chocolate tart.
If you make your reservation in advance, you can secure extra discounts on Champagne (think Veuve Clicquot or Veuve Clicquot Rosé for $75 and Dom Perignon for $185). Either call or email after you make your dining rez to claim your bottle(s). Fine China is open during its regular business hours from 5-11 pm.
Valentine’s Day under the stars
For a February 14 grande finale, head upstairs to Waterproof and have a totally dreamy toast. Order a bottle of G.H. Mumm Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries for $150, then gaze out over the Dallas skyline. The rooftop bar is open from noon to 2 am, with the Valentine's package available from 5-11 pm. Secure your spot at Waterproof here.
