New Victory Park bar Hero aims to be entertainment central, with an arcade stocked with classic games like Ms. Pac-Man and an indoor/outdoor bar area kitted out with a giant 24-foot screen for game watches.
That’s not the only big thing about Hero, which is currently in soft opening mode. It’s from 80/20 Hospitality founder Elias Pope and the team behind HG SPLY CO, and this massive bar and restaurant takes up 25,000 square feet of space. There’s the main dining room, which seats 540 and offers 2 full-service bars, while that indoor/outdoor bar area is dubbed The Meantime and seats 560. Custom T-shirt company Bullzerk even has an actual store inside the restaurant’s main dining room.
The 80/20 Hospitality restaurant group caters all practices for the Dallas Stars, so that helped informed the menu. Crowd-pleasing choices include bacon cheeseburgers, shrimp tacos, smoky carrot hummus, and crab rangoon.
Hero is currently open for dinner and drinks, with plans to add more hours and a complete menu by early June at the latest. Take a look at the soft opening menus below:
