The Music Factory, the mega entertainment complex currently underway in Irving, has announced a new tenant, and this one has Latin flavor: Gloria’s. This will be the 16th overall location and 13th in DFW for Gloria and Jose Fuentes, whose restaurant is known for its Salvadorian and Tex-Mex specialties and brunch.
Gloria’s will be one of more than 20 restaurants and retail shops at the Music Factory. Noah Lazes, president of ARK Group, the developer on the project, says they will be announcing new restaurants in the coming weeks.
Lazes called the Fuenteses “local restaurateur legends” in a release. “Gloria’s has become a Texas staple for delicious, full-flavored Latin cuisine and is the perfect addition to bring even more diversity to our great mix of restaurants.”
Located just north of O’Connor between U.S. Highway 114 and Las Colinas Boulevard, adjacent to the Irving Convention Center, the $165 million complex will have an eight-screen Alamo Drafthouse, an 8,000-seat concert run by Live Nation, 50,000-square-foot outdoor plaza for special events such as fashion shows and food festivals, and 100,000 square feet of office space. It can all be accessed by the DART Orange Line.
The Music Factory broke ground in August 2014 and is slated to open in mid-2016.
