As Legacy West, a $3.2 million mixed-use development, comes to fruition, so does Legacy Hall, a three-story dining and entertainment venue, which is expected to open in September or October.

Legacy Hall, located in Legacy West on Windrose Drive, will have 24 food stalls, seven bars, a beer garden, a stage, and a craft brewery and taproom, Legacy Hall President Pat Garza said in a recent interview with Community Impact Newspaper.

The food hall will also have daily events, including live entertainment, and anticipates 25,000-30,000 visitors per week, Garza said.

“[Legacy Hall] is really a matching of a perfect venue with a wonderful idea that happened to find itself in Plano,” he said.” [It’s a] convergence of opportunity and location.”

On the second level, guests will find one food stall and another bar called Good View. The Good View will have TVs and great views for people-watching, Garza said, hence the name.

The top level will include the craft brewery and taproom. Garza said Legacy Hall is not ready to announce the name of the brewery but said it will be full-functioning and offer tours.

The Food Hall Co. will operate the bars and chefs will operate the food stalls. Some chefs are creating new concepts to serve at Legacy Hall, and others are still deciding, Garza said.

  • Andrew Chen, owner of Monkey King Noodle Company

  • Anastacia Quinones, chef at Kitchen LTO, will serve quesadillas.
