5 Must-See Texas Spots on Our Radar

Nadia Dabbakeh | August 23, 2016 | Feature Features

We've been road-tripping around the state, taking notes on all the must-see spots. Here are our top five ways to get some Texas charm, no matter your style.
IN THE MOOD The lobby of the Roman and Williams-designed Hotel Emma

1. 51fifteen, Houston
Try the steak frites or prawn risotto (both $28) at this chic bistro inside the new Saks Fifth Avenue. 5175 Westheimer Road, 713.963.8067

2. Bar Saint George, Marfa
Run into everyone from cowboys working the range to an artist visiting Chinati at the Hotel Saint George’s bar. Room rates from $215, 105 S. Highland Ave., 432.729.3700

3. Flora Street Cafe, Dallas
No ressies required for the huitlacoche empanadas ($10) served in the bar during happy hour. 2330 Flora St., 214.580.7000

4. Hotel Emma, San Antonio
Rooms at this charming 19th century brewhouse-turned-hotel come with a pool package that includes a Curio Turkish towel, Tom’s sunglasses and Supergoop! sun products. Room rates from $295, 136 E. Grayson St., 210.448.8300

5. Jeffrey’s, Austin
We love Jeffrey’s watermelon juice VodkaFizz ($12) just as much as we adore the tailored silk pajama dresses with contrasting piping that adorn the female staff. 1204 W. Lynn St., 512.477.5584
