Leader in experiential entertainment to bring unique value with first location in DFW Metroplex
Entertainment disruptor EVO Entertainmentis planning a blockbuster opening all its own -- a new, large format, experiential venue in Southlake Town Square. Combining the art of movie-going with gourmet dining and mixology, plus bowling and gaming options, EVO Entertainment presents a host of entertainment opportunities all in one convenient place. It is expected to open in Southlake Town Square near the end of 2021, and will be the first DFW Metroplex location for the fast-growing brand.
“Southlake Town Square continues to pursue innovative operators offering the most engaging and unique experiences,” said Jason Kasal, vice president and senior leasing director – western division with Retail Properties of America, Inc. (“RPAI”), owner and operator of Southlake Town Square. “Introducing the EVO Entertainment concept in Southlake Town Square will provide a highly elevated movie-watching experience combined with a host of other amenities to add a new level of entertainment to our carefully curated lifestyle destination.”
EVO Entertainment will open at 1450 Plaza Place in Southlake Town Square, in a 68,733-square-foot space that formerly housed a theater. Guests will enjoy dine-in movie theaters from the comfort of their soft, reclining seats, and the ability to order a wide selection of gourmet food and beverages, including wine, beer and spirits. Guests may see a variety of films -- from the newest releases to well-loved classics -- on any one of seven screens. The refreshed, reconfigured venue will also include a full restaurant and bar, gaming (including virtual reality), bowling, private party rooms and other entertainment. An outdoor gathering place is also planned for a green space front yard with seating and a fire pit that will connect into the environment near Muchacho Tex Mex, a restaurant opening in Southlake Town Square in July.
“After exploring the DFW Metroplex, we determined that Southlake—particularly Southlake Town Square--was the best place to enter the market,” said Mitch Roberts, CEO of EVO Entertainment Group. “We are excited to be part of an environment with some of the best retail in a lifestyle destination that truly values the experiential element of shopping, dining and playing together as an elevated human experience.”
