Irving residents have easy access to the Toyota Music Factory, a massive venue with 20+ bars, restaurants, and multiple stages. In addition to the two indoor theaters, there’s the Texas Lottery Plaza for open-air shows. Well-known artists from around the country are invited to perform on this stage.

In addition to the multiple live music spaces, this entertainment hub is home to an Alamo Drafthouse. Dallas residents might already be familiar with this unique theater that combines a cinema, cocktail bar, and restaurant.

And if you’re a Dallas Cowboys fan, head to the Music Factory on the day before each home game for a meet-and-greet with the players.
