Loop, a family-friendly restaurant and bar built around ping-pong, will open in early November at The Patios At The Rail at The Rail District in Frisco, venue partners said.

The entertainment venue at 7511 Main St. will be set in a two-story, roughly 6,000-square-foot space with for-rent ping-pong tables that can accommodate parties of varying sizes, said partner Michelle George. Loop will also feature a food menu, two bars and an upstairs patio.

George described Loop as an “eatertainment” venue not unlike Top Golf, where guests can have an all-in-one experience.

“We’re hoping to be more of an event space, where people can come and dine and eat and drink, and also have a really fun activity,” George said.

Named after a popular ping-pong maneuver, George said she hopes Loop elevates the sport. She noted guests won’t have to go chasing after ping-pong balls while playing thanks to buckets full of them and on-staff ball retrievers.



Plans are also in place to host events at Loop, according to George, from corporate gatherings, birthday parties for young and old guests, or celebrations for any milestones.

George, a Frisco resident of seven years, said Loop branding will pay homage to the city’s history, including its roots as a major train hub. Judging from her time in the city, she said Loop aims to provide an all-inclusive spot to hang out, something she said Frisco has lacked.

“There's not really a lot of areas in Frisco that allow you to pull in, park your car, and do it all right there,” George said. “We really wanted something that was going to help keep it all in one place.”
