As Nancy mentioned, I did attend the pre-opening/Anne Stodghill’s (wife of lawyer, Steve Stodghill) birthday bash at Victor Tango’s on Saturday night and yes, I am still recovering. Here’s what I recall: The Rat Pack themed party drew in a huge (it was packed when we arrived at 9:30 and continued to be throughout the evening) crowd including actor Bailey Chase (from TNT’s Saving Grace), Mark Cuban, Todd Wagner, Tom Landry Jr., Capera Ryan, Jonas and Nicole Woods, JB Hayes, Rozalyn Columbo, Michael & Melina Cain and many more. Bartenders worked feverishly to fill drink requests while Managing Partner/Operator Greg Katz made sure things ran smoothly. (Jump for more!)
Hunter Sullivan preformed while guests sipped on savory handmade cocktails such as the French 75 (a champagne cocktail and my personal favorite), Chipotle Sour (a unique blend of spicy and sweet), Tango Fresh (the house specialty made with cucumber and mint), Midnight Sidecar, and Gold Rush and munched on fois gras monte cristos, pigs in a blanket (made with home made sausage), and duck and pork meatballs with figs. The former Sense space has been completely transformed with red brick, leather booths, retro tables, and black and white checkered floors. If Saturday night was any indication of how the “mixology bar” or “gastro pub” will be received once it officially opens on September 2, I say get in line now. See you there.
