Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
It’s the week of the Dallas Art Fair and Whitewaller Dallas has arrived to reveal all you need to know about the exhibitions, events, and special projects taking place. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, Principal of Droese Public Relations, Suzanne Droese.
“For lunch, my go-to spot is the T Room at Forty Five Ten. There is nothing better than their Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad, with a little dose of shopping for dessert! But when the sun goes down, my best bets are Bistrot 31 in Highland Park Village or Midnight Rambler for chic cocktails.”
“Walk or drive by the old Statler-Hilton hotel—an iconic example of mid-twentieth century design. Praised in the late ’50s as the first modern American hotel, it closed in 2001 and is currently in the midst of a renovation. Don’t miss a chance to see this former marvel, which is rich with so much history, because who truly knows what the remodel will bring. My favorite tidbits? This is where Tina Turner left Ike. And, the hotel’s four-day opening celebration included the Hiltonettes chorus girls performing in mink chaps and headdresses representing the ‘ingredients’ of Dallas. Can you just imagine?”
“Hands down, The Warehouse, which showcases the Rachofsky Collection. It contains contemporary works of painting, sculpture, video, photography, and installation in a flawless setting.”
“For a special indulgence, try one of the signature facials or massages at the spa at The Joule hotel. It’s easy to lose track of time in this gorgeous subterranean spa! And, for hot days in Texas, I love Steel City Pops‘ popsicles for a cool treat.”
