Celebrate Summer With Poptails

Las Colinas’ retro-inspired boutique hotel, Texican Court, celebrates summer with Poptails. Now through August, guests are invited to indulge in the hotel’s sweet treat.

Three unique Poptails (premium spirits combined with popsicles) put a special twist on the Texican Court’s seasonal menu. Valencia Hotel Group rolled out their Poptail program in 2016 for its properties. This year, Texican Court joins in the fun.

“These poptail programs have been a huge hit at the other Valencia Hotel Group concepts, said Sales & Marketing Director Brianna Sepulveda. “We are excited to join the program and debut our own poptails. They are a fun twist on a childhood favorite that is sure to bring out the inner kid in all of our guests this summer.”

If you’re looking for a staycation or getaway, Texican Court offers an authentic Texas experience in the heart of DFW. The recently opened Texican Court is just across from the bustling Toyota Music Factory. They sweeten the deal even more with special overnight packages featuring delightful accommodations, late check-out, and a poptail welcome. Relax and unwind by the pool or in the courtyard with alcohol infused frozen popsicles.
