Toyota Music Factory: Look What is New!

Irving’s Toyota Music Factory continues to crank out the fun. 


This month at Toyota Music Factory, guests will want to visit Texas Lottery® Plaza every Thursday for a rockin’ new concert series, as Texas Lottery® Live hosts some of the nation’s most beloved bands. With $5 presale tickets, or $10 tickets at the door, the outdoor plaza stage will host pop to psych rock to bands that bring the horns and country twang.  For schedules, visit the Toyota Music Factory website.

Of course, Live Nation’s 8,000-seat Pavilion at the Toyota Music Factory has concerts year-round that offer a variety of entertainment.


Mesa Mezcal, a new all-day Mexican restaurant inside the Westin Hotel at the Irving Convention Center, opened in April. Diners can look forward to Mexican dishes such as Veracruz-style whole fish for dinner, avocado-topped huaraches (or grilled masa cakes), and the Oaxacan burger, made with a chorizo patty and topped with pineapple and pepper jack cheese. The restaurant also offers 50 different types of agave-based spirits.

The Green Gator is now open. While the Cajun-themed sports bar is known for its vast array of Cajun dishes, it also offers numerous options for those who prefer a more traditional meal. It is easy to catch sporting events on multiple big-screen televisions located throughout the restaurant. Or, patrons can just go outside, sit on the patio and relax. Weekends bring live music and brunch, and hours are extended.

Emil Bragdon has brought his dynamic Reservoir restaurant to Toyota Music Factory. A graduate of Irving’s MacArthur High School, Bragdon is excited his new restaurant and entertainment venue will be only a short distance from where he grew up. Bragdon’s success began in Fort Worth, where he launched his original Reservoir along with other concepts, including Whiskey Garden.

Bar Louie, a popular neighborhood gastro bar, is expanding its current location at Toyota Music Factory. Citing overwhelming success in Irving, Bar Louie will grow by 3,000 square feet. A unique social gathering place with a huge outdoor patio, Bar Louie has been extremely well received by the Irving-Las Colinas market.

Gloria’s Latin Cuisine, another crowd favorite, also recently enlarged its beautiful patio to accommodate diners.

Coming soon ... Burgerim, a custom-burger franchise, offers gourmet buns, toppings and sauces to create an array of flavor choices. The menu includes other favorites like sandwiches, chicken wings, sides, salads and more.

Opening later this summer 

Hatchet throwing, anyone? The next wave of night-out activities is hitting Toyota Music Factory with Stumpy’s Hatchet House. An extreme version of darts, patrons will be able to hurtle a sportsman’s hatchet toward a painted bullseye. Trained instructors will be on-site to ensure the harmless and friendly play of each guest, providing a safe, leisurely venue. This will be DFW’s first Stumpy’s. There are 22 others across the country.

Visit for all dining and entertainment options.
