Bigger… Better… Badder! That’s how Gas Monkey Garage’s Richard Rawlings describes his new dining and entertainment destination, Gas Monkey Dallas, which is planned for the Mercer Boardwalk development on LBJ Freeway near Luna Road.
Gas Monkey Dallas will offer a whole new live music venue and experience – the evolution of the monkey. Gas Monkey Garage has become a cultural icon in the automotive landscape, and this new iteration appeals to a diverse audience, with family-friendly fun during the day and a rocking live music scene at night.
Richard Rawlings, the Fort Worth native, owner of Gas Monkey Garage and star of Fast and Loud, and the same people that brought us Gas Monkey Bar and Grill, will be opening a new venue called Gas Monkey Live. Gas Monkey Live will be a 38,000 square foot state of the art live music venue with a game room that will include vintage pinball machines and pool tables. There will also be three video walls including one 11×30 video on stage. Continue reading →

When I first walked through the Gas Monkey Bar and Grill we explored the newly updated building that once hosted Firewater on Technology Blvd off Northwest Highway. The building held promise of loud music, cold beer and plenty of burgers and BBQ. The restaurant patterned after the Fast and Loud program on the Discovery Channel, which has taken the planet by storm with over 2 million viewers each week, and growing. This is not the only demographic that will be interested in this venue, but it is definitely a huge draw, making this a destination for conventioneers and tourists visiting Dallas. Continue reading →
It’s Fast. It’s loud. It is the Gas Monkey Garage boys ripping it up each week on the Discovery Channel with their hit reality program Fast n’ Loud. The Dallas based show is centered around two mechanics, Richard Rawlings who is a self-pronounced motor mastermind, and Aaron Kaufmann, a mechanical prodigy. Now call them by their new title, restaurateurs.
We were invited in for an exclusive hard hat tour this week and it looks like this will be an extremely fun venue. Gas Monkey Bar and Grill is deep up in the construction phase with new ideas being brought to the table each day to make it more Monkey-esque. Look for plenty of garage doors opening up into secret cabanas in perfect eye sight to a massive outdoor stage that also overlooks a beautiful pond. Or the beautiful patio around the corner, in the front of the venue, that has the same water view but will be shaded with faux garage fixtures. Continue reading →
