First Elements of Grapevine Main Station Open to the Public
Savor the Flavors of Harvest Hall, Where Global and Local Cuisine Intersect
Grapevine, Texas – The highly anticipated Harvest Hall, inside Grapevine Main Station, has opened to the public on Saturday, February 6, 2021, with Main Line Coffee Bar opening at 6 a.m. and live music from Noon – 1 a.m. inside Third Rail, an exclusive indoor/outdoor entertainment venue.
When guests enter Grapevine Main Station, reminiscent of 19th century grand rail stations of America, they will be greeted by the Grapevine Concierge Team located in the new home of the Grapevine Visitor Information Centre, majestic 40-foot ceilings, a colourful mural that pays homage to Grapevine’s rich heritage and the seven kitchens of Harvest Hall.
Harvest Hall, a European-style food hall, is a spacious food and entertainment venue part of Grapevine Main, a $114-million-dollar public/private sector transit-oriented development project, committed to providing a unique experience for visitors and locals alike by featuring thoughtfully selected restaurateurs who showcase high-quality, chef-driven, specialty foods. Each kitchen is family-owned-and-operated and focuses on preparing meals that are made from scratch.
Finding the right mix of cuisines and the right partners has been inspiring,” said Tom Santora, chief commercial officer at Coury Hospitality and managing director of both Hotel Vin and Harvest Hall. “With this group of talented chefs, we have the opportunity to develop a fun and creative culinary community. Harvest Hall will provide guests savoury food, spectacular service and some of the best entertainment in North Texas.”
Opening later this spring, additional elements of the 42,000-square foot rail station will open to the public, including Grapevine Main Plaza, large enough to accommodate 3,500 guests, yet intimate enough to lose yourself in the feeling and romance of all that is Grapevine, and a 150-foot-tall Observation Tower. The expansive 38,000-square-foot Plaza will also include the “Peace Circle” art display, with larger-than-life bronze sculptures, depicting an 1843 peace treaty negotiation between then President of the Texas Republic, Sam Houston and ten American Indian Chiefs/leaders. It will also include a regular entertainment schedule. The Observation Tower will offer 360-degree views of the city and beyond. Grapevine Main Station is the only brick and mortar building servicing the 27-mile Trinity Metro TEXRail commuter rail line and Grapevine Vintage Railroad and it contains modern amenities, including meeting and office space and more.
All of these extraordinary offerings, located at the intersection of Main Street and Dallas Road in Historic Downtown Grapevine, are connected to Hotel Vin, a six-story, 120-room Marriott Autograph Collection property and a 552-space parking garage.
