1. Draft Media Sports Lounge 400 N Olive St, Dallas, TX 75201

Part of the Sheraton's $90 million renovation, Draft's a massive (414 capacity), wood-paneled den of vicarious athletic thrills, outfitted with a wall-length leather-trimmed bar, thick high-back booths, sofa'd lounging areas, 21 flat screens, and an anchoring 104-inch plasma; adulation stretches from the standard (photos of Dirk, jerseys from Troy, shoes from...Keyshawn), to the ornate (expressive sports-hero paintings; reliefs of team logos elegantly carved into wood panels -- as opposed to an inexpertly scrawled "suck on it, 'Skins").
