Glenstar To Celebrate Public Grand Opening of Terra Lounge at The Terraces in Dallas-Fort Worth Area on May 14

WESTLAKE, Texas / CHICAGO (May 6, 2024) – Chicago-based Glenstar, a national commercial real estate developer, owner and property manager, will host a public grand opening of Terra Lounge, a bar and restaurant at The Terraces in Westlake, Texas, from 4-8pm on May 14-16  . Located at the back of The Terraces, at 1500 Solana Blvd., Terra Lounge formerly was only for tenants of The Terraces, an eight-building, 1.1 million-square-foot office complex between Dallas and Fort Worth. But it will now be open to the public, serving neighboring office buildings and communities including Westlake, Trophy Club, Southlake, Roanoke and beyond.

Managed by San Antonio, Texas-based ISS Guckenheimer, Terra Lounge is a 2,400-square-foot bar/restaurant that can accommodate 99 patrons. The venue offers a wide range of beer, wine and mixed drinks, as well as appetizers and gourmet pizzas. Terra Lounge’s premium cocktails range from the Platinum Paloma with Casamigos Blanco tequila, fresh lime juice and ruby red grapefruit soda to a smoked cherry old fashioned. During the grand opening week, guests will enjoy drink specials, live music from local artist, Chet Stevens, and giveaways.

“We’ve had success in attracting people from the offices around us; now, we want to open the doors to more of our neighbors,” said Kristi Layton, Glenstar’s vice president and general manager of The Terraces. “Westlake has very few restaurants in town, so we’d like to see Terra Lounge become the ‘Cheers’ of the neighborhood, where people can gather as a community, play a game of bocce, hear some music, and just relax and connect with co-workers, friends and neighbors.”

The intimate, tranquil interior of Terra Lounge includes a fireplace, wood-paneled walls, copper bartop and comfortable lounge seating. A second-level game room offers pool, ping-pong and shuffleboard. An adjacent pet-friendly patio with shaded seating allows bar patrons to take their drinks outside and enjoy the weather.

Glenstar completed a $25 million revitalization of The Terraces in 2021, reimagining a campus built in the 1980s for IBM into a corporate setting more attractive to today’s vibrant, collaborative and creative workforce. The Terraces now includes approximately 50,000 square feet of enhanced amenities, including a full-service restaurant; state-of-the-art fitness facility with luxurious locker rooms; multiple indoor and outdoor seating/collaboration areas with firepits, hammocks and bocce ball courts; a large technologically advanced tenant conference facility; and covered parking.

Terra Lounge is open Monday through Thursday from noon to 8 p.m. and Fridays from noon to 5 p.m. The bar is closed on weekends.

Located 11 miles west of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Westlake is one of the most affluent towns in Texas with a median household income of $250,000+, according to U.S. Census data. Situated midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, Westlake and the surrounding communities have an average weekday population of nearly 35,000 people, including residents and employees.
