New restaurant park The Hub in Allen makes room for kids, dogs, music and booze
An open-air food hall in Allen with three restaurants, several bars and an ice cream shop opened Nov. 3, 2022.
The Hub is a Texas-sized spinoff of a beachy hangout on Scenic Highway 30A in Florida, near Seaside. The venue in Allen is three times the size of the Florida original, with a deeper focus on food and less on retail.
Its long green turf with squishy chairs in front of a stage seems just right for families with kids and dogs. To cater to teenagers eating with their parents, the company created an app so that adults can front-load money onto it and kids can order their own food by reciting their parents’ phone number.
The Hub was also designed with adults in mind, and bars with frozen drinks, canned beverages and local beers are only a few dozen feet away from any seat in the 35,000-square-foot venue.
