Stirrup Cup Lounge
700 Cool Springs Blvd
Stirrup Cup Lounge - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Stirrup Cup Lounge is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.
330 Welch Rd
Jakes - Dress up. Jakes isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.

Prizm - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Prizm kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

In real estate the mantra is location, location, location but in mixing cocktails its technique, technique, technique. Most home bartenders tend to just throw the ingredients together and serve the drink and in a lot of commercial establishments they do the same thing. The way a drink is prepared can make a big difference in how it tastes and in the atmosphere created.
Chilling a Glass
Always chill glasses before filling them. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this. First is to simply put them in the fridge or a freezer a couple of hours ahead of time. If you forget however you can fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice for a few minutes. Make sure to empty the ice before preparing the drink.

Pour some liquor into the prewarmed glass and heat a smaller amount over a flame or in a saucepan on a stove. Light it with a match and then pour it into the glass being used very carefully.
