The company behind Reservoir and the Whiskey Garden in Fort Worth will be opening a Reservoir restaurant at the Toyota Music Factory in the space previously leased to Billy Bob Barnett.

Emil Bragdon, president and CEO of Funky Lime Hospitality Concepts has signed a lease to bring his Reservoir restaurant concept to Toyota Music Factory. A graduate of Irving’s MacArthur High School, he’ll be setting up shop only a short distance from where he grew up.

“Reservoir at Toyota Music Factory is a perfect fit for us,” said Bragdon. “Our food and beverage program at our location in Fort Worth’s hot West 7th District has been a testing ground for us the past six years. Our chef has been outstanding, and our product has evolved – I couldn’t be prouder. Now to be able to launch our second location less than a mile away from where I grew up and went to junior high and high school is a little surreal. I’m excited to bring some local flair to the area, and I know Reservoir will be a great addition to other amazing concepts and operators at Toyota Music Factory.”

The Toyota Music Factory Reservoir will be across from Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and located on the Texas Lottery Plaza. Plans call for the venue to open in the fourth quarter of this year.

“Reservoir brings another exciting dimension to our expansive selection of restaurants and entertainment,” said Noah Lazes, president of ARK Group and developer of Toyota Music Factory. “Given the success of the dining options inside the project, as well our Live Nation concert venue making the top 10 list of most attended amphitheaters in the world, we’re seeing terrific leasing activity from operators now aware of the Las Colinas market potential. More new tenant announcements will be coming soon.”

Two other new concepts, Kitchen 101 and Violet Room by Kim Forsythe (owner of Sambuca), are also under construction and expected to open by year-end.

Barnett, the original namesake of Fort Worth’s Billy Bob’s Texas, had opened five venues in the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, but shuttered them at the end of May after about two months of operation.

Toyota Music Factory, developed by ARK Group, is a $200 million, 500,000+ square foot mixed-use entertainment and lifestyle center located in the Las Colinas Urban Center in Irving.
