Two Mules Cantina, highly-anticipated bar and restaurant within Valencia Group’s new Texican Court, is now open for breakfast, dinner, happy hour and weekend brunch. Executive Chef Patrick Hildebrandt has created a destination to showcase Southwestern-inspired dishes. 

The new eatery features live music most weekends, a large fireplace, specialty margaritas and Western décor with modern elements in a sophisticated and comfortable setting. Texican Court also has an on-site specialty tequila bar which serves up craft cocktails in a cozy firelit space. 

“When contemplating our menu, I immediately thought of rustic, hearty and spicy food at its most satisfying,” Hildebrandt says. “Our menu, influenced by Spanish, Mexican, Native American and cowboy cultures, is a flavor powerhouse of cilantro, chilies, lime and avocado.”

Hildebrandt came to Texican Court with over a decade of first-class hospitality experience, having worked previously at Sweet Basil in Vail, Colorado, the Empty Stomach Group in San Antonio and The Hollow in Georgetown, Texas.

Texican Court has 152 retro-inspired rooms, 3,500 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, three distinct courtyards, a circular-styled pool, large wood-burning fire pits, rocking chairs, live music and more. The hotel’s design features Spanish mission-style architecture with a subtle layer of Texas, making it a unique blend of Mexican and the Lone Star State cultures.

Z Resort’s luxury Hotel ZaZa Austin is now open in the Warehouse District of downtown Austin. Texas charm fuses with the city’s urban essence throughout the new property’s 8,500 square feet of meeting and event space, three beverage and dining concepts, 159 guest rooms, full-service spa and rooftop pool.

 

There may be an array of events and activities that encompass the Texas experience, but for those in Austin, The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s True Texas Grilling Experience is the newest to join the ranks.  

The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s newest attraction known as The Texas Experience is an interactive culinary experience in which guests can experience the flavors and cooking techniques of Texas firsthand. 

 

Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt is now incorporating fun musical features into its meetings. Programs for groups include “Soundtracked,” which has a playlist customized by the music and social programming director for a group’s meeting space and “Anthem” where groups create a new company theme song with percussion instruments.
