Haywire Restaurant Announces Grand Opening Festivities

Highly anticipated restaurant Haywire, a new concept from successful Front Burners Restaurants (Sixty Vines, Mexican Sugar, Whiskey Cake, Legacy Hall and more), has announced its grand opening at West Plano’s Legacy West. The festivities will last for 10 – yes, 10! – days, from Nov. 29 – Dec. 8.

Haywire is part of the newly constructed, three-story building that houses Legacy Hall and Unlawful Assembly Brewing Co. Legacy Hall’s grand opening date has been pushed back until December, but thankfully, we can all get a taste of Haywire before then.

Similar to its sister restaurant, The Ranch at Las Colinas, Haywire features traditional Texan recipes made modern with locally-sourced ingredients. The restaurant calls it “cuisine that’s hearty enough for the ranch hand yet perfectly refined for the businessman or woman.”

Haywire’s atmosphere is inspired by the unique style of Marfa, TX, and is spread out over three floors, each offering a distinct experience: a whiskey lounge with impressive fireplace on the first floor, the main dining room on the second floor and a rooftop patio with a retro Airstream trailer on the third floor.

The grand opening celebrations include:

Wednesday, Nov. 29, 5:30-7 p.m: Grand opening sabering event featuring Tattinger on the first-floor patio. Take part in the celebration as the restaurants’ leaders wield large steel sabers to expertly lop the necks off bottles of fine champagne, then take a guided tour through all three floors of this incredible building.

Thursday, Nov. 30, 5:30-7 p.m: Boots and Bubbles wine and cheese event. Janet Trefethen, principal of Trefethen Family Vineyards, will be pouring her award-winning wines – paired with Haywire’s delicious, locally sourced meat and cheese boards – in the Private Dining Room.

Friday, Dec. 1, 7-9 p.m: Whiskey Tasting. Haywire’s whiskey experts will explain the intricacies of the spirit while offering tastings in the one-of-a-kind whiskey lounge. The lounge stocks more than 400 brands, including the best Texas has to offer. House of Cigars will likewise be on-site rolling handmade cigars for guests.

Saturday, Dec. 2, 6-8 p.m: Don Julio 1942 Party featuring craft cocktails on the third-floor rooftop patio bar and in the Airstream trailer. Yes, you read that right – there’s an Airstream trailer on the roof so guests can relax with a signature cocktail, a cold local craft brew or a fine bourbon under the stars.

Sunday, Dec. 3, 6-8 p.m: Half-off wine nights begin. Haywire is wine lovers’ new Sunday destination as the restaurant offers half-priced bottles of over 100 labels on its impressive wine list every Sunday night. The series kicks off at a special time on Dec. 3 before settling in for its regular 4 p.m. start on Dec. 10.

Monday, Dec. 4, through Friday, Dec. 8, from 4-7 p.m: Happy Hour, featuring Haywire’s handcrafted specialty cocktails and signature drinks at each bar. An array of vendors will be stationed on every floor offering booze and bites to guests.
