Dubbed the Box Garden, the adjacent venue space gets its name from the reclaimed shipping containers used in its construction. Outdoors, the Box Garden boasts a 600-square-foot stage backed by a massive LED screen for broadcasting live acts and sporting events. It seats 500, and has room for 1,000 more standing. The venue is designed to host everything from live music to food festivals and fashion shows.
Most importantly, though, the Box Garden will add another food stall and five new bars to the Legacy Hall line-up, rounding out the total bar count at nine. The newly added options include a tiki bar called Idol Time, a tequila bar called Lunazul, and an outdoor outpost of the Hall’s Unlawful Assembly Brewing Company.
There’s also a Hawaiian-style stand in the works that will serve boozy shave ice, and the arrival of barbecue stall Carlton Provisions. A project of Chili’s founder Larry Lavine and Jordan Swim, Carlton Provisions will serve oak-fired brisket, ribs that are smoked for five hours, and sausage that’s made on site.
The Box Garden is officially open now with a scheduled grand opening celebration for May 17 through 20, when the Hall will host a weekend-long party with live bands, barbecue, and booze.
