Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer Michael Irvin Opens New Sports Bar – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Michael Irvin is expanding his legacy in the DFW area with Playmakers88, an upscale sports bar and restaurant. The two-day grand opening kicks off this Friday at 5 p.m. and will feature live music, stand-up comedy and celebrity appearances.

On the second day, customers can expect gifts, autographs and photo opportunities from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The restaurant plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the weekend event to the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Dallas, a cause close to Irvin and his family’s hearts.

“I am truly honored to create an upscale 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.”

As guests enter the modern restaurant, they are greeted by a recreated version of the famous Ring of Honor, featuring photos of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin — better known as “The Triplets.” Other members of the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor are also displayed around the bar.

Playmakers88 also features Dallas Cowboys art and memorabilia.

The 7,000-square-foot space includes a bar, lounge and booth-style seating for more than 250 people, 50 flat-screen TVs, surround sound, upbeat music and a pool table. Celebrity chef Rassuan “RJ” Johnson will head up the restaurant’s kitchen, serving crab cakes, chicken wings and burgers, as well as pasta, Southern dishes and seafood entrees.

“This is truly a moment in time. I have enjoyed Chef RJ’s cooking for years, so having him at the helm of our menu offerings is a true honor and a great treat for our guests,” said Irvin.

Playmakers88 is located at 5005 State Highway 121 in The Colony and will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. to midnight.
