San Antonio welcomed a new hot spot last fall with the opening of 1902 Nightclub. Located in the historic St. Paul Square district, the 119-year-old property was formerly the Sunset Station Train Depot and was known as “the building of 1,000 lights” thanks to the electric lights installed during its construction.

Designed in Spanish Mission Revival style and located in The Espee, a complex of eight venues, 1902 Nightclub features a stained-glass oculus, grand staircase, stucco walls, low-pitched clay tile roofs and vaulted ceilings. In addition to hosting musicians and other entertainers, the venue is available for private rentals and can accommodate 150 people for a seated event or 900 for a cocktail party. The venue also can be combined with The Espee for a total of 25,000 square feet of event space that can accommodate 5,000 guests.

Planners looking for a destination with an array of venue types, all catering to small-scaled meetings, and fun after-hours entertainment need look no further than McKinney, located just 30 miles north of Dallas. Whether historic, nature-based, modern, or situated in a Croatian village, McKinney’s venues are designed to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

The iconic Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas will soon welcome a new restaurant, Crown Block steakhouse. Reunion Tower restaurants have been renown over the years for their slowly rotating view of the city. However, owners and husband-wife business partners Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have chosen to keep the dining area stationary. The previous restaurant, Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty, spun 360 degrees, but it closed in 2020 during the pandemic.
