For a low-key but hip place to grab an after-dinner cocktail in Dallas, check out the always-popular Samba Room. It’s still a definite hot spot and can be crowded, but go after 10 p.m. and plant yourself on one of the chic sofas. The capraihaina, a cocktail made with Brazilian cachaca, fresh lime juice, sugar cane, and a lime garnish, is an institution now. Sipping on these and listening to the Spanish beat will make you feel like you’ve been transported to Latin America. 4514 Travis St., (214) 522-4137
