Next month, the first Texas outpost of Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill will officially arrive at the brand new Irving Music Factory entertainment district.

Announced back in 2015, Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill hails from Oregon, and brings a lengthy menu of pub fare and craft beer to the massive new complex in Irving. The chain currently operates more than a half-dozen restaurants in Arizona, Colorado, and its home state of Oregon, and serves up classic dishes like bacon-wrapped dates, fish and chips, burgers, and flatbreads alongside an equally diverse list of beers.

Thirsty Lion joins a number of (mostly chain) restaurants expanding to the Irving Music Factory complex, including Japanese restaurant Kabuki, and beloved Dallas Salvadoran/Tex-Mex chain Gloria’s. The complex is also home to a giant Live Nation music venue, Alamo Drafthouse movie theatre, and office space.

The restaurant will open in Irving on October 24. No word yet on when Irving Music Factory’s other forthcoming eateries will debut.
