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.

This summer, New York is welcoming its first sports betting bar and casino, Rivers Sportsbook Schenectady. The lounge, designed by DMAC Architecture, is approximately 1,800 square feet of comfortable chairs with charging ports, betting terminals and a gaming floor. With walls covered in high definition televsions, Rivers Sportsbook allows guests to place bets on several different games rather than just focusing on one.
