In celebration of the long awaited opening of the Box Garden, Legacy Hall’s entertainment venue, the 3-story food hall complex has planned a four-day grand opening party that begins on May 17. The Box Garden is the answer to the proverbial question; What do you want to do today?
Not only will the 4-daylong event complete your weekend plans for May 17-20, but the multi-use, multi-bar, multi-seat, multi-food stall, multi-event venue will be filling your calendar for the rest of the year.
THE BOX GARDEN
The Box Garden is the completion of the vision that is Legacy Hall. It is the ultimate outdoor patio and entertainment venue constructed out of reclaimed shipping containers. Designed to be a versatile and innovative, communal space; it’s the spot for a happy hour with friends, a business rendezvous or some late-night fun. At its core is a 600 square foot event stage that will host live music, concerts, sports watching, festivals, holiday parties, culinary events and more. The Box Garden will be the epicenter for artists of all mediums coming together in Plano. Musicians, performers, chefs, mixologists, painters… all styles, flavors and vibes will be celebrated.
DINE + DRINK…MORE!
The opening of the Box Garden also means even more food and beverage choices for Legacy Hall visitors. The space will house a BBQ stall, Carlton Provisions, founded by Jordan Swim, of Vestals Catering, and Larry Lavine founder of Chili’s. These gentlemen know how to prepare a mean BBQ plate. Their labor of love yields tasty creations like oak-fired brisket, 5-hour ribs and house-prepared sausage that’s, oh so good.
With the opening of the Box Garden, Legacy Hall will now have 9 total bars. The Box Garden will add 5 new bars including Idol Time Tiki Bar, Stillhouse Lounge, Unlawful Assembly Outpost, and 2 rotating pop-ups along with a Hawaiian shaved ice stand.
