Dallas’ Longhorn Ballroom is coming back!

DALLAS – A longtime staple of Dallas’ music history has a new owner with an old plan: Restoring the Longhorn Ballroom to its original splendor.

Dallas developer Jay LaFrance recently bought the Longhorn Ballroom, according to the Dallas Morning News, and has already begun renovations. The 4.5 acre property sits at the corner of Riverfront Boulevard — formerly known as Industrial Boulevard — and Corinth Street, and is expected to be more a venue for events and parties rather than just a nightclub.
