Richard Rawlings, made famous by the Discovery Channel’s ‘Fast N’ Loud’ series, recently announced plans to bring a new restaurant, live music venue and more to a single site in Lewisville.
Rawlings, the famed owner of Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, previously announced a new Gas Monkey Bar & Grill location in Richardson, set to open next year. The second location is coming soon to the old Zone Action Park location, 1951 North Summit Ave., which closed in May 2020 at the height of COVID-19 restrictions. Rawlings had previously had a few restaurants/venues with the same or similar names, but these closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new development – which has been approved by the Lewisville City Council – includes a restaurant, bar, outdoor patio, stage, lawn and classic cars, and it will also revive the closed go-kart track and mini- golf on site and will add at least one ride, according to city documents. An opening date has not been announced.
Rawlings is partnering with Refined Hospital Concepts – a management company that recently opened three restaurants on the Flower Mound River Walk – to create a destination focused on family entertainment during the day and live music at night, according Dallas Cultural Map.
Rawlings is also auctioning off most of its classic car collection — more than 25 cars and motorcycles — right now. Bidding ends Wednesday. Click here for more information.
