And finally, Dallas-Fort Worth will get its first entertainment center location this spring – at Southlake Town Square.
The premium movie and entertainment operator is opening its first North Texas location at Southlake Town Square this Friday, March 11 — just in time for Spring Break. Dallasites, don’t worry, another location will debut in Prestonwood this summer.
EVO Entertainment Southlake Town Square is so much more than a cinema. It is a complete entertainment center offering 12,000 square feet of indoor gaming and event space.

Then there’s the 12-lane bowling center and over 100 video and arcade games to win. Other never-before-seen EVO expansions include rock climbing walls, bumper cars, and a three-story gravity ropes course. That should keep Southlake entertained.

The scratch kitchen and craft bar offer pizzas, sandwiches and more. The new space includes an outdoor patio and the ability to host private, corporate and social events.
More new restaurants coming to Southlake Town Square
A new Italian restaurant, Stella Trattoria, is expected to open this spring. Not affiliated with Stella Trattoria located in Montauk, NY., this new spot comes from Paola Pedrignani and will feature homemade family recipes. Customers can expect pizza and pasta.
Ferah Tex-Med Kitchen, which hails from Firewheel Town Center in Garland, will also open its second location in Southlake. It is expected to open in mid-May, when owners Barak and Stephanie Ozcan add some spice to the area.
What exactly is Tex-Med, you ask? It’s modern Mediterranean with a Texas twist. The place will serve dishes like a chef’s sample platter featuring falafel, fried goat cheese, crab cake, bacon-stuffed dates, hummus and pita bread. Not your typical mezze. There is also a standard burger, a falafel burger and the traditional kebab. Also on the menu is Gulf Coast blackened red snapper served with Southern oatmeal cakes.
Southlake is getting even more delicious and a whole lot more fun this spring.
