Concert goers at Toyota Music Factory near Olympus Las Colinas in Irving, Texas



There aren't many apartment communities that are within walking distance of an amazing live music venue like Toyota Music Factory. Olympus Las Colinas is less than two miles away, and despite the name, the Music Factory has way more than music.

Upcoming shows range from Bill Maher to Alice Cooper. Comedians Jim Gaffigan and Anjelah Johnson will bring lots of laughs to Irving while Snoop Dogg and MC Hammer are sure to raise the roof.


For a premium movie theater experience, there's the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. At this theater, you reserve your seat ahead of time so there's no need to get there early to wait in line. They have a full menu with pizza, sandwiches, burgers, sandwiches, and more. Alcoholic drinks are also available. Just order from the comfort of your seat and a server will bring it to you. Make sure you take advantage of $5 movies on Tuesdays!
