New Irving entertainment district Toyota Music Factory is going to have no shortage of places to eat and drink. In addition to all the other restaurants moving into the complex, a massive 90,000-square-foot project with six dining and drinking establishments is readying to open in spring 2018.
Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from the upcoming Big Beat Dallas:
- A Vegas-style club. Martini Ranch will offer bottle service, DJ performances, and craft cocktails.
- Texas barbecue. The blues-inspired Highway 61 South is going to combine smoked meats with live music.
- Taco hotspot. DJs at taqueria and tequila bar Bar Manzanilla will provide a nightly playlist.
- A spot for wine lovers. Sommeliers at Texas C-Bar are putting together a huge wine list with picks from over 300 vineyards. Expect to find private wine rooms, a cigar lounge, and a lengthy Scotch menu too.
- Southern comfort. The kitchen will be open 24 hours a day at Texas Jam House, which will serve Southern fare at its inviting porch.
- A unique liquor license. Guests will be able to carry alcoholic beverages from one locale to another within the 90,000-square-foot complex.
- Outdoor drinking. Two "Texas-sized" outdoor bars will pour cocktails, frozen margaritas and regional craft beers. Screens will be everywhere to air sports and feeds from live stages.
- Farmer's market. A "Ranchers’ Market" will happen every day in a pavilion covered by a retractable canopy that just happens to be the largest permanently installed Texas flag in the country, according to Big Beat Dallas.
There’s something for everyone, right? The minds behind Big Beat Dallas seem to think so.
“One of our goals at Toyota Music Factory is to cater to people of all walks of life, day and night,” Noah Lazes, president of ARK Group and the project’s developer, said in a press release. “We believe Big Beat Dallas helps tremendously in reaching this goal of an all-encompassing 24-hour entertainment district. Each concept at Big Beat Dallas was custom designed for the Toyota Music Factory to cater to the many residents and visitors of Irving.”
