Texas Live!, Arlington’s new $1 billion entertainment complex officially opened on August 9. The Texas Rangers, The Cordish Companies and the City of Arlington project, located between the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium will also feature several new options for meetings and event planners, including 35,000-square-feet of meeting, event and convention space.

Texas Live! will also include a new flagship hotel and Grand Event Center, opening in 2019, from partners Loews Hotels & Co. and The Cordish Companies.

“With the addition of the new flagship Live! by Loews luxury hotel, convention visitors and meeting planners now have the choice of a luxury brand in Arlington, in addition to new meeting space,” said Jon Hixon, Vice president of sales.

Designed by internationally acclaimed HKS Architects, the hotel will feature 302 luxury guest rooms and house Revolver Brewing, a working brewery, bar and tasting room. The Grand Event Center will feature a grand ballroom with banquet seating for up to 1,500, an executive boardroom (with five additional breakout options) and flexible prefunction space.

Event attendees at the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) will now be able to enjoy coffee from the first robotic, connected coffee service in Houston—the Coffee Haus, located across from the Marriott Marquis Houston’s skywalk. Houston First, which owns and operates the GRB, and its hospitality team powered by Levy, Houston Inspired Catering, have partnered with Austin-based Briggo to implement this service.
