Though Gator's Croc & Roc is located in Dallas' West End, everything from the 'gators hung from the rafters to the cheery wait staff to the frozen drink machines behind the bar make this casual party bar and restaurant feel like Bourbon Street. These drink machines churn out brightly colored specialty drinks ranging from margaritas and strawberry daiquiris to Blue Hawaiians and the, um, "Lethal Weapon 2." The menu enhances the New Orleans feel with its predominantly Cajun and seafood dishes. Gator's also offers burgers, sandwiches, salads and a few Tex-Mex favorites. Its website touts the nightly "racy" piano entertainment. And new patrons shouldn't be surprised to see folks dancing atop Gator's snow-white grand piano. The space can be rented out for private parties, and it's a popular spot for bachelor/ bachelorette parties.
