Last updated: July 26, 2016 You might have thought that having fun in Flower Mound was never a possibility.
When most people think of Flower Mound, they picture a vast array of suburban neighborhoods, Chevy Tahoe’s roaming the 40mph speed limit streets, and luxury retail outlets at every corner. While this might paint a somewhat accurate picture of what Flower Mound looks like on any given weekday, I’ve been lucky enough to witness the hidden, crazier side of Flower Mound that is well-known to locals, but still fairly well-hidden from the eyes of the mainstream.
And I bet you thought that Flower Mound was a quiet little town without any skeletons in its closet. But, every city has its secrets. Today, I’m going to share with you the details of what goes on during a typical “girls night out” in Flower Mound. Depending on your social circle in Flower Mound, there are quite a few different directions that your night can take. But, I’m going to attempt to cover the most popular timeline of a Flower Mound girls’ night out in detail – mainly going off my personal experience with partying in the Mound. Here we go. Here is How to Have Fun in Flower Mound [Ladies Edition].
Fun in Flower Mound Step #1.) Gather Your Friends
Are you trying to have a fun night out in Flower Mound? Uh oh, sounds like trouble. You’d better tell your friends to bring their favorite bottle of white wine and heels – because it sounds like you’re going to the Glass Cactus of Grapevine at around midnight.
But first, you’ll want to assemble all of your girlfriends. Make sure that they’re ready to meet at your place around 8 p.m. and preferably bring along some light appetizers like calamari or shrimp cocktail from Patrizio’s. Once the Chevy Tahoe’s are properly parked and the girls are all caught-up on the latest drama to circulate Flower Mound, it’s time to drink. Those drinks at the Cactus are at least $12 each, and while you ladies won’t be paying for them anyway, this is a great excuse for you to go ahead and get your buzz on early in the night.
After finishing a bottle or two of chilled Pinot Grigio, one of your girlfriends will ultimately mutter the magic words that everyone was waiting to hear.
“Let’s go out.”
But, not to the Glass Cactus just yet. It’s too early for that at 10 p.m. on a Saturday night. Your friends want to continue to pre-game before venturing off to the main event. And, this is exactly why Z Grill & Tap (or Z Bar for short) exists.
Fun in Flower Mound Step #2.) Pre-drink at Your Bar of Choice (Usually Z Bar)
It’s at this point that one of the girls (the most sober of the group) will volunteer to drive. I recommend against allowing this to happen. Just have your DD drive or call an Uber to drive instead.
So, your group then hops into the Chevy Tahoe or UberBLACK and you take off to Z Bar.
You arrive at Z Bar at 10:30 p.m. And it’s poppin’ off. Now you’re having fun in Flower Mound. There’s live music, fun dancing and a sort-of-wild atmosphere that only begins to take place once the sun has set in Flower Mound. Flower Mound is no longer “Flower Mound” at this point. It becomes more like a mysterious suburban utopia of “anything goes.” You can feel it in the air (or is that just the white wine you’re feeling)?
After an hour of drinking and dancing, it’s about time to head off to the Glass Cactus of Grapevine. This is only a twenty-minute drive from Flower Mound, so it’s one of the most convenient and high-energy nightclub options in all of DFW (especially for Flower Mounders).
Once you’ve managed to get all of the girls together (this takes some time) you’ll be ready to head out to the Cactus. Hopefully, you’ve booked a room or two at the Gaylord Texan Resort beforehand (this four-diamond hotel is amazing and is attached to the Glass Cactus nightclub).
So, with all of your girls back together in your group, you finally hop into your SUV, tell your driver to put on 97.9 the beat, and get ready to party.
Fun in Flower Mound Step #3.) Hit the Club
OK – your time to shine has arrived. It’s about 11:45 p.m. on a Saturday night, and you’ve just made it to the Gaylord Texan Resort. You see the Glass Cactus nightclub in the distance, and it looks like it might be getting wild inside. There’s a short line outside the entrance, but you get dropped off in front of the club and are able to waltz straight past the line (one of your friends knows the doorman, of course).
You walk inside the nightclub and 1000 set’s of eyes lock onto you and your group of friends. The cover band or DJ is playing Top 40 hits, and people are dancing everywhere. You see beads of sweat dripping from people’s faces as they dance and grind against one another, but it still feels ice-cold inside.
“People are alive in here,” you think to yourself. “I kind of like this place.”
So, this is the point where you either order drinks, get a table, or start to dance with your girlfriends. Or, if you don’t know what to do just yet, guys will surely begin to approach your group and offer to buy drinks (I told you that you wouldn’t have to pay for drinks).
What happens from here?
Fun in Flower Mound Step #4.) Crash Or Keep On Partying
It’s completely up to you. Most will drink and party the night away. You’re there to have fun, or the time of your life, even. You want to let yourself become a little loose and “present” in the moment. You’re enjoying the night, and the drinks too! You can feel the beat of the music running through your body as you dance with an attractive new friend – or possibly just your girlfriends. Either way, your girlfriends will all be out on the dance floor partying with you.
Time moves quickly, and before you know it, it’s 2 a.m. The club is shutting down (as per Texas law) and people slowly begin to gather their belongings and make their way out the front door.
Maybe you’ve even found some new friends to join you for the after-party back in your hotel room, or maybe you’re just ready to order food from room service and crash for the night. Either way, you’ll have had an amazing night out which all began in Flower Mound, Texas.
The key to having an amazing night in this city all starts with gathering the right group of friends and leaving the drama back at home in Flower Mound. You’re going out to feel great, show off your clothes (don’t lie, of course you want to show off that outfit) and have fun. Having fun is a huge priority in Flower Mound that many people seem to overlook. Sure, many people in Flo Mo become overwhelmed with work, or claim to be tied down with the kids and “adult responsibilities.”
Don’t allow your excuses to limit your ability to have the time of your life.
It’s always important to have at least one *amazing* night out per month in this town. Believe me – it’s more than possible to make it happen. It just takes getting the right group of girls together and letting yourself feel alive.
While I’ve described one way to have an amazing night out in Flower Mound – there are of course countless other ways to have the time of your life in this city. There’s always Uptown, Downtown, and Addison which contain some of the best nightlife spots in all of DFW. Your options for having an amazing night out in this city are absolutely limitless – and it can all begin right here in Flower Mound, Texas.
I hope that you begin to plan your next outing with the girls right away.
