Fort Worth chef Tim Love to open Tannahill’s concert venue in Stockyards
Chef Tim Love’s new music venue, Tannahill’s Tavern and Music Hall, is set to open in 2022 in Fort Worth’s stockyards.
The 1,000-person concert space will be located in the horse and mule barns of Mule Alley – a refurbished part of the Stockyards that has reinvented the former tourist spot into a livelier area for eating and drinking.
Love, a Fort Worth resident, has been cooking food at the Stockyards for over 20 years. He is now the most prolific head of the Stockyards, with seven open or upcoming concepts in this area.
Already open: Paloma Suerte, a brand new tex-mex restaurant; Ático, a Spanish tapas bar; White Elephant Lounge; Love Shack burger place; and Love’s original Stockyards restaurant, the Lonesome Dove Western Bistro.
Coming soon: Caterina’s, a red sauce Italian restaurant we named one of the most exciting new restaurants to open in 2022; and the Tannahill Concert Hall.
Tannahill’s seems to be primarily focused on music and special events and was created in partnership with Live Nation. The venue seats 500 people and has a full commercial kitchen, making it a potential venue for corporate events and weddings in Fort Worth.
At concerts, the Love team will create the concessions menu.
Tannahill’s is named after Love’s son. And it’s not the only place named after a family member in Love’s portfolio. His Italian restaurant outside the Stockyards, Gemelle, is the Italian word for twins and is named in honor of her twin daughters. His future restaurant Caterina’s is named after his late sister Kathleen.
