Virgin Hotels has been expanding its footprint, setting up shop in Nashville, New York and Las Vegas, with other locations slated for New Orleans, Edinburgh, Scotland, Miami and Palm Springs. But, the hotel chain didn’t make Dallas wait. Late 2019 marked the grand opening of Virgin’s hotel in the Big D. The place helped ring in 2020 with its Avant Eden New Year’s Eve party. In The Pool Club, the hotel’s fourth-floor rooftop bar and pool deck, people sipped cocktails and listened to a set by DJ Sam Blacky. Private cabanas and a daybed that seats up to 20 people surrounds the pool. As you lay there listening to beats spun by the likes of DJ’s Ari & Rizza and Rizkilla, you can stuff your face with light bites and slam cocktails down your gullet.
