Lala's Little Nugget
You'll feel like you just entered a warm and fuzzy time warp after walking into Lala's, one where it's always Christmas thanks to plenty of colorful twinkle lights and a jukebox that plays a festive mix of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. The classic cocktails here are poured stiff by the super-friendly bartenders, and don't be surprised if a regular approaches you with a joke or a coin trick. Lala's is just that kind of place.
In the often-sweltering Texas heat, the idea of crisp winter temperatures feels like a cool, refreshing breeze. And, while they may not be able to physically change the atmospheric conditions, this Christmas-all-year-round outpost can certainly get you in the yuletide mindset. This place has it all, stockings hanging from the ceiling, the leg lamp from A Christmas Story, a velvet Christmas-themed Elvis painting, and Santa memorabilia up the wazoo. And even when the weather outside is frightful—like right now—the Reindeer Water, made with tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and rain water, is sure to make you feel delightful.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
