Tannahill’s Tavern & Music Hall—a new live music venue, restaurant and private event space—will open this year at Fort Worth Stockyards in the historic Horse & Mule Barns of the Mule Alley redevelopment.

Led by owner/chef Tim Love, the venue is named for Love’s son and will feature state-of-the-art audio and lighting capabilities and accommodate up to 1,000 concert-goers. Additionally, the landmark building will be equipped with extensive kitchen facilities designed to accommodate pre-event dining, full concert concessions and multiple-course meals for up to 500 guests.

Tannahill’s Tavern & Music Hall will host a variety of performers in partnership with Live Nation. The venue boasts nearly 26,000 square feet of completely renovated space with the main floor featuring a main stage, restaurant, branded merchandise retail shop and a large double-sided bar to serve tavern- and concert-goers. Upstairs, a mezzanine features three, 20-person VIP suites, a separate lounge area and a private bar—all of which promise views of the main stage.

Tim Love is the chef and owner of Love Management, which includes Lonesome Dove Western Bistro (Fort Worth, Austin and Knoxville), Woodshed Smokehouse (Fort Worth and Houston), Love Shack (Fort Worth, DFW Airport, Knoxville and Houston), Queenie’s Steakhouse (Denton), White Elephant Saloon (Fort Worth), Gemelle and Atico (Fort Worth), Hotel Otto (Fort Worth) and Paloma Suerte (Fort Worth).

The iconic Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas will soon welcome a new restaurant, Crown Block steakhouse. Reunion Tower restaurants have been renown over the years for their slowly rotating view of the city. However, owners and husband-wife business partners Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have chosen to keep the dining area stationary. The previous restaurant, Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty, spun 360 degrees, but it closed in 2020 during the pandemic.
