‘The Magic of Sinatra’ at Franco’s Lounge

Bryan Rindfuss

Who better to usher in a Vegas-style lounge in Castle Hills than “Frank Sinatra stylist” Paul Salos? Deemed “as smooth as velvet” by Sharon Osbourne, the Garland resident and America’s Got Talent finalist is among a handful of performers who’ve taken the intimate stage at Franco’s Lounge, a snazzy new music venue (with excellent martinis) tucked inside Franco’s Italian Grill in the Alon Town Center. “The Magic of Sinatra” didn’t stop with spot-on vocals: Salos channeled Ol’ Blue Eyes down to the timing, gestures, and onstage banter. Between songs, the septuagenarian announced with a skip, “I used to be a hoofer,” and then glanced around the room to say, “I’d make a barn out of this place if I used it.”
