The city sparkles with possibilities when the sun goes down in Dallas. Movie options include the AMC Grand 24 (the first American megaplex), Studio Movie Grill (where you can order dinner while watching a flick) and such independent film theaters as Angelika Film Center and The Magnolia. Musical roots run deep here, too. Grammy winner Stevie Ray Vaughan hailed from Dallas, as does Erykah Badu. Nearby Denton gave Norah Jones and Don Henley their start.
The OU vs. UT Red River Shootout and Cotton Bowl Football games bring crowds of partygoers to Dallas' West End district, home to a House of Blues club, among others. Famous nightclubs include Ghostbar at the W Hotel and Aura Lounge.
