DALLAS -- Since its opening last fall, SISU Uptown Resort has been the destination of Dallas' most beautiful people. Billed as a "sophisticated urban playground," SISU's success can not only be linked to its great location in the heart of Uptown --directly across Maple Ave. from the Crescent -- but to its leadership team, managing partner Dan Bui (formerly of Sfuzzi, Candleroom and Ghostbar) and entertainment/brand director Wade Hampton (formerly of Ghostbar).
SISU's dining room sits in a 5,000 square-foot home that was completely renovated with eclectic details and modern designs. The menu includes "local worldly" food ranging from oysters, calamari, fried pickles and mini corn dogs to crispy sea bass, roasted chicken and an 8 oz. bacon wrapped-fillet.
SISU features multiple areas that including a massive patio/deck that is attached to the main dining room, an upstairs area complete with a balcony and the separate pool/cabana area. Each area has the capability to feature several music formats at the same time.
The entire property encompasses 16,000 feet with the ever-popular swimming pool area's AQUA day-club complete with plush cabanas and a lavish waterfall in the center of the saltwater pool that is surrounded by palm trees. Cabanas are available for bottle service reservations. There is also a special poolside food menu with delivery directly to the cabana.
For their big bashes or 'soirees' at the pool, SISU flies in DJs from all over the country to perform. Some of the bigger names who have appeared at the Uptown resort include Andy Caldwell, Paul Oakenfold, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas and Grammy-winners Play N Skillz.
For those looking for a Miami-style pool party experience -- complete with some of the hottest bikini-clad ladies in DFW -- SISU is the place to see and be seen.
