Dallas Cowboys Football Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Super Bowl champion Michael Irvin officially opens Playmakers88

New upscale sports bar and restaurant reflects his heritage and love of the game

Dallas Cowboys Football Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Super Bowl champion Michael Irvin is expanding his legacy and love of the game with the opening of Playmakers88, an upscale sports bar and restaurant in The Colony, Texas. Known for big plays on the field, Irvin aims to bring that same focus and commitment to this new venture to unite people from all walks of life through great sports, food and entertainment. The two-day grand opening will begin Friday, July 12, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. Events are open to the public.

Playmakers88 is a vibrant sports bar and restaurant where Dallas Cowboys fans can watch and enjoy football games in a vibrant atmosphere that pays tribute to the team’s legendary players. Upon entering the modern venue, guests are greeted by a large replica of the famous Ring of Honor, which artistically depicts the likenesses of Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman, famously known as “The Triplets.”

Raised and displayed around the elegant bar are 21 additional Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor members whose significant contributions have made the organization known as “America’s Team.” Additionally, Dallas Cowboys art and memorabilia adorn the walls and are featured prominently throughout Playmakers88, capturing the incredible essence and history of Micheal Irvin and the team.

“I am truly honored to create an exclusive sports bar and restaurant where sports fans can cheer on their favorite teams and athletes while enjoying great food, cocktails and company,” said Irvin. “I hope that everyone who comes to Playmakers88 feels the excitement, energy and love that I have for the sports community and the DFW area.”

Playmakers88 is a great place for families and sports enthusiasts. The 7,000-square-foot space features a bar, lounge and booth-style seating for more than 250 people, 50 flat-screen TVs, surround sound, upbeat music and a pool table. Whether it’s date night or happy hour with friends, the sports bar and restaurant is a friendly place to enjoy a great dining and entertainment experience.

More than your average sports bar, Playmakers88 is a restaurant where guests can enjoy home-cooked meals from Executive Chef Rassuan “RJ” Johnson, who adds his own unique style while creatively combining traditional family recipes with modern favorites. Flavorful dishes include tempting crab cakes, chicken wings and burgers, as well as delectable pastas, Southern cuisine and seafood entrees. In addition, a specialty cocktail menu has been developed to combine signature favorites and contemporary inspirations for every craving and taste. Guests can also choose from over 20 domestic and imported beers on tap.

“It’s truly a closed circle. I’ve enjoyed Chef RJ’s cooking for years, so having him at the helm of our menu offerings is a true honor and a great pleasure for our guests,” Irvin said.

To celebrate the grand opening, Playmakers88 will host two celebratory events. On Friday, July 12, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. to midnight, the community is invited to an evening of live music and stand-up comedy with actor and comedian Tommy Davidson. This is the perfect opportunity to dress up and walk the Playmakers88 blue carpet. On Saturday, July 13, 2024, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the community is invited to a family-friendly afternoon of entertainment, giveaways, autographs, and photo opportunities. Attendees of Saturday’s event are encouraged to come dressed to represent their favorite sports team. A portion of the proceeds from the weekend’s celebration will benefit Alzheimer’s Association Greater Dallas, a cause close to Irvin’s heart and family.

Playmakers88 is located at 5005 State Highway 121, The Colony, Texas 75056 and will serve the community Monday through Sunday from 11:00 AM to midnight. Learn more by visiting www.playmakers88.com or calling 214-994-8888.
