Lust for LifeWith such relentlessly inventive cocktail names as Lust for Life, Pepper Smash, Wet Hot American Summer, and the eponymous Victor Tango, it's clear you are in a nightspot that takes its alcoholic concoctions seriously—but with a big dash of fun. Victor Tangos may describe itself as a neighborhood bar, but the food menu (duck goat cheese flatbreads, ahi tuna nachos, lollypop lamb chops) could make it a destination in itself. And if you want a taste of Dallas people-watching (beauties, well-heeled and striking, and their admiring swains sporting serious watches), this is as good a place to start as any, with the charged visual appeal of the assembly adding to the experience. As for Lust for Life? The grapefruit liqueur, lemon, and champagne will help jump start your evening.
