Formation, a new upscale coworking space located at The Star in Frisco – Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters and practice facility, has officially opened.

The collaborative work space will provide members with the same level of elegance, office furniture and tools, and environment as the Cowboys executives and Jones family.

Other exclusive amenities include access members-only events highlighted by speaking and Q&A sessions from Cowboys and Jones family executives, professional headshots, presale access to select events at AT&T Stadium and Ford Center, a coveted Cowboys Way mailing address and much more.

“We are thrilled to officially open the doors to Formation so that our members can begin to ‘Work the Cowboys Way’,” said Jerry Jones Jr., Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer. “We’re looking forward to continuing to build a community of passionate business professionals — everyone from entrepreneurs to executives — who are excited to build symbiotic relationships with one another, gather inspiration and guidance from the Cowboys organization, and who will pursue the same drive for excellence we expect from both our athletes and employees.”

A limited number of memberships for Formation remain available for varying business needs, including:

Field Formation memberships (open workspace), ideal for maximum flexibility, as well as collaboration and connectivity through interaction with other members.

Fixed Formation memberships (dedicated desks), allowing members to enjoy the open workspace benefit with the added ease of a consistent, reserved workplace.

In addition to a number of neighboring conveniences that make up The Star campus, all members of Formation will have access to shared spaces such as a library-inspired open workspace, multiple conference rooms, phone booths for private conversations, a welcome bar that will be a gathering point to interact and network with fellow members, and more.

Sidecar Social, a new entertainment and dining destination for adults, will open next month (August 19) in Addison’s Village on the Parkway at Belt Line Road and the Dallas North Tollway.

The 20,000-square foot, curated, interactive social lounge experience, founded by Brent Tipps of BoomerJack’s, will feature craft cocktails and bites, free classic grownup games, karaoke, live music, enormous TVs, and all-season patio.

“We all want a place to go to hang out, relax, and connect with our friends and new people,” says Tipps. “Everything about Sidecar Social is designed around that. From shareable plates to free games, we built a place you can bring a friend to and go from dinner and drinks to games and music — you feel like you don’t want to leave.”

Rotating, shareable menu highlights will include Adult Mac N Cheese, Grilled Cauliflower Steak, Charred Corn Guacamole, Smoked Burnt End Nachos, and Wood-Oven Grilled Flatbreads. On the lighter side, Sidecar Social will offer artisan salads and grilled kabobs. Featured sandwiches will include the Nashville Hot, Braised Short Rib French Dip and Akaushi Ground Beef Burger with Chimichurri Sauce while entrees will consist of Chicken and Waffles, Grilled Lemon Dill Salmon, Hanger Steak, and more.

Two main bars will serve guests—one horseshoe bar and convivial lounge area off the main dining room with views of the kitchen and guests, and a giant, rectangular bar in the primary two-story showroom between three enormous 18-foot televisions, two bocce courts, shuffleboard, and generous banquettes with full views of live music stage.

Guests will be able to enjoy delicious craft cocktails such as the Elderflower Paloma to Strawberry Basil Bees Knees and Italian 76. Handcrafted classic cocktails will also be available. Upon opening, daily drink specials will include $5 craft cocktails on Tuesdays, $5 martinis on Wednesdays, half-price wine and happy hour drinks from open until 6 p.m. on weekdays.

Free, classic, indoor games for grownups will include a giant, eight-person foosball table, private ping-pong room, shuffleboard, bocce ball, pop-a-shot, corn hole and darts.

Live entertainment acts are poised to take the stage every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday on a remote, retractable platform including acoustic acts, live dance bands and DJs. Additional staging areas on the patio and main dining room will be available to host DJs and acoustic acts. Local restaurant and live music industry veteran and General Manager Steve Richardson plans to bring the best acts from the regional music scene to Sidecar Social.

Décor and atmosphere will include high ceilings; an exhibition kitchen; wrought iron, brick, and genuine handcrafted wood accents; leaded-glass windows; modern wood and leather furnishings; and industrial lighting. Private karaoke rooms will overlook the second floor alongside a sumptuous lounge with great views of the music stage, dance floor, games, and centerpiece bar.

Just off to the right of the main entrance there will be an enormous, elevated, dog-friendly patio. The company took care to preserve the many trees providing shade to the patio and added additional weatherizing features to keep furry and human guests comfortable all year long.

Sidecar Social believes in giving back to the community and has chosen local organization Operation Kindness, the largest no-kill shelter in North Texas, to work with as a charity partner. Tentative events supporting the organization will include drives, fundraisers, and pet adoptions. Proceeds from a doggie entrée bowl, a menu item for four-legged guests, will benefit Operation Kindness.
