The Howard Hughes Corporation announced a Kirby Ice House location will be built on over 4 acres of land in The Woodlands Town Center, according to a news release from Howard Hughes Corp.

The Woodlands Kirby Ice House location is being built at 1700 Lake Robbins Drive, The Woodlands, across from The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, according to the release.

The Woodlands Kirby Ice House location is expected to follow a layout similar to the Upper Kirby and Memorial locations, with over 10,000 square feet of indoor bar space and over 18,000 square feet of backyard space with room for outdoor games, food trucks and events. Kirby Ice House will serve a variety of draft beers, cocktails, wine and spirits. It will have over 70 televisions and 120 taps for beer. In addition, the news release said the location will feature a 141-foot bar, claiming the distinction as the longest bar in Texas.

“As we add locations, we are looking to bring the same Kirby Ice House brand to more people by maintaining the experience and service that made our first location so popular,” Kirby Ice House Partner Russ Morgan said in the release. “We are excited to create the ultimate gathering spot and event space in the center of The Woodlands’ vibrant community and commercial hub to serve the area’s residents, companies and visitors.”

The Woodlands location will host the largest indoor area for Kirby Ice House, and its first indoor and outdoor bar with sliding windows. The release said The Woodlands location is the first development outside of Houston for Kirby Ice House.


“We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with Kirby Ice House to bring their best-in-class concept to the heart of The Woodlands Town Center,” said Jim Carman, president of the Howard Hughes Houston region, in the release. “Our community has been looking for additional entertainment options, and I am looking forward to enjoying our first pre-Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion concert gathering or a big game watching event at Kirby Ice House in The Woodlands.”
