The Music Factory

More tenants have just been announced for the upcoming $165 million Irving mega-development The Music Factory Entertainment Center, expected to open in mid-2016. Centered around an 8,000 seat Live Nation concert venue, plans already call for a two-story Alamo Drafthouse,  50,000 square feet of outdoor event space and 100,000 square feet of offices, a potential bowling alley,  25 different restaurants and venues including a gastropub and Japanese eatery of the chain-nature and now...wait for it... seven more chaintastic concepts courtesy of Seattle-based expansion experts Restaurants Unlimited (who have 21 concepts in 47 locations already). Thar they blow:

  • Texas Kitchen: Down home comfort foods served 24 hours a day. A 4000 lb. smoker will be on hand, plus live country & western music outside in the evening, and a coffee bar in the morning.
  • Burgers & Blues: Texas style barbecue, burgers and pub grub. Emphasis on bourbon selection and regional craft beers. With live Blues on an indoor stage.
  • Latin Inspired Cantina: Exactly what it sounds like. Plus, artisan tequilas and live Latin-Flamenco.
  • Oyster / Seafood House: Creole and Cajun are the name of the game here with oysters both raw and fried, Louisiana specialties like gumbo and jambalaya,  New Orleans classic cocktails, and live zydeco and jazz.
  • West Coast Grill & Lounge: A focus on sustainable seafood, dry-aged steaks, wine, soft jazz, and more things to be enjoyed while wearing a turtleneck and blazer.
  • Martini Lounge and Tapas: 30+ specialty martinis, bottle service, cocktails, tapas, VIP booths, DJs and more things to impress the Paulie G in you.
  • Mediterranean Wine Bar: Mediterranean dishes and an ass load of wine.
  • According to a press release all of the Restaurant Unlimited concepts will be open 7 days a week, with dining and live entertainment available outdoors, including a Sunday Gospel Brunch.  There will a pastry team working to create all breads and dessert from scratch as well.
