The Shops at Legacy is an urban lifestyle center with unique shopping centers, award-winning restaurants, lounges, bars, live music and a hot spot for night life. The place gets livelier by the evening, especially the weekends are full of energy with lot of partying, music and dancing. This is “the” place to hang out, chill out, relax and unwind. Get the stress out of your system..
The good thing about this place is that it does not just cater to the adults. We often frequent this place with our kids. Our favorite part is the road strip ( Lone Star Drive) near the musical fountain. Our kids look forward to visiting this place. Their favorite part is having Gelato at Paciugo Gelato and sitting and watching the fountain.
The musical fountain is one of the main attractions at Shops at Legacy. The lights and fountain are coordinated with music and offers viewers a kaleidoscope of colors. I like to call it “Dancing Fountains”. This place is ideal for night photography and I take real pleasure in taking pictures of the fountain. The music near the fountain comes from speakers under the drain covers around the fountain. If you stand on them you can feel the beats
Sambuca 360 and Twenty2 have live music inside the restaurant every evening. We actually enjoy the live bands playing near the fountain. They normally position themselves next to Cafe Istanbul restaurant and opposite of Gordon Biersch. We have seen the bands playing over the weekend till midnight. To get the event schedule please visit the official web site of Shops at Legacy.
All the restaurants (Cafe Istanbul, Gordon Biersch and RA Sushi) are packed to capacity during the weekend when the bands are playing.
Our last visit to this place we were lucky to hear this lady singing (photo below). She sang the “Single Ladies” song by Beyonce to perfection. The kids also enjoyed the song. They ask me to play her video again and again.
The following are some of the restaurants and bars in the area. There are so many to choose from catering to all kinds of taste. For detailed list of restaurants please visit the official site of Shops at Legacy.
