Arlington, Texas is a city uniquely dedicated to sports. The city is home to AT&T Stadium, Globe Life Park, the eSports Stadium Arlington & Expo Center and Texas Live!, a sports, dining and entertainment district that opened in August 2018. Live! By Loews — Arlington, TX, which opened its doors last month, is the newest hotel to open in the district, and expands both the city’s convention and meeting capacity.
Billed as a “multi-concept sports resort”, the 300-room Live! By Loews – Arlington, TX offers 35,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space, including a 14,000 sq. ft. ballroom that can host just under 1,000 people. The $150 million hotel is a joint venture between Loews Hotels & Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Loews Corporation; The Cordish Companies; and the Texas Rangers.

The hotel offers five restaurants and lounges, ranging from a swim-up bar and the River Market artisanal grab-and-go to all-day dining at Cut & Bourbon. Adjacent to the latter guests will find Bar Bourbon, complete with private bourbon lockers where guests can age their own selections.
