The Glass Cactus is a great place to grab drinks after a long day at the Gaylord Texan. We went here on a Friday evening and loved hanging out on the patio. The band was not our style, but the DJ that played on the band's breaks was great! We also had a private event on a Saturday evening. We... More

Music is great, crowd is not just young people. Wish they didn't have the cover charge if you are ordering drinks, a longer happy hour and more options than just bar food.

While at the Gaylord Texas for business meetings, I decided to try the Glass Cactus, which is more of a nightclub/bar, than a restaurant, but it was handy. The wines B-T-G are somewhat limited, but adequate. The beer selection, and Margaritas are probably a bit better. The venue is large, with several areas, so that it can accommodate guests there...

There were long lines at the bar and slow service at the tables. Drinks were just ok. There were no frozen drinks much to the chagrin of some of our party. Limited types of alcohol but this was a special event hosted by the conference planners.

We were in a hopping crowd and this place was up to the challenge. The sunset out on one of two decks was beautiful. You could really have a beautiful night indoors or outdoors. Great atmosphere,

We went to the Glass Cactus for a final party after our convention. Everyone had a VERY fun time. There is plenty of seating outside for everyone to watch the sunset. It was a little windy, but that's life near the water! Inside there was a full dance floor where we line danced. I assume it was a house band... More

Great place to hang out and party if you are staying at the Gaylord. Very close with a free shuttle that runs continuously in the evening….very easy and convenient.

The Glass Cactus is a cool venue. There’s a large dance floor and several bars. The outdoor seating is the best part though, as it looks over Grapevine Lake and has outdoor entertainment. Was there for a corporate event and it was a great spot to host a ton of people.

Thank KCW25
