Music and Entertainment
The Toyota Music Factory is a music and entertainment dream come true. The sprawling 250,000-square-foot campus features an 8,000-seat-capacity indoor/outdoor amphitheater, The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory, where you’ll find huge headliners taking the stage. The Texas Lottery Plaza, a 50,000-square-foot event plaza, hosts live music, outdoor movie screenings, and other special events throughout the year.
For more entertainment at the Toyota Music Factory, snag seats at the on-site Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, a full-service restaurant and movie theater combo with a compelling menu of food and drinks—cocktails, too. Here, you can catch the latest films while indulging in savory treats, from burgers and pizzas to gyros and salads.
Restaurants and Bars
Beyond entertainment, Toyota Music Factory is also a food and drink haven with over 20 options. Whatever you’re craving, Toyota Music Factory has it. Perfect for lunch or a post-conference outing, the dozens of top-rated offerings at the Music Factory will have you coming back again and again.
For classic burgers, head to Yard House, where beer and food lovers unite. Here you'll find juicy half-pound prime beef burgers, as well as a variety of other great gourmet dishes. Or, for a lighter lunch or dinner, try Freshii, a health-minded restaurant offering tossed-to-order salads, plus soups, burritos, and more. If you’re in the mood for Japanese grub, try The Blue Fish. Here, you can enjoy excellent sushi and entrees, and don’t forget to swing by for lunch specials or happy hour.
Looking for a grab-and-go lunch? Somewhere relaxing to grab a bite before a concert or movie? Nosh & Bottle gourmet deli is just the place. Chef-prepared salads, sandwiches, and soups blend Mediterranean flavors for a truly tasty menu. Nosh & Bottle also offers a coffee bar and a large selection of wines.
Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill is another local favorite. Choose from a wide range of local craft beers to pair with a local and seasonal menu serving up Southern comfort food. When it’s time to unwind with a little nightlife action, head to Bar Louie where signature cocktails are always just an order away and live music takes place every Friday night.
Gloria’s Latin Cuisine and Blaze Brazilian Steakhouse are additional locales within the Toyota Music Factory where you have the option to live it up with good eats, great drinks, and lively music after a long day at the convention center.
The Toyota Music Factory has something to satisfy every appetite. And with little distance between the Irving Convention Center and the Toyota Music Factory, it’s an easy place to walk to between meetings or at the end of the day.
