The Longhorn Ballroom Reopens with hopes of Building on its Rich History
One of Texas’ most iconic music venues has reopened with hopes of converting the Longhorn Ballroom and the area surrounding it, into a full-fledged music complex on the northeast corner of Corinth St. and Riverfront Blvd., bringing new life to the Cedars area, just south of Downtown.
Developer and Kessler Theater owner, Edwin Cabaniss, hosted a grand reopening celebration on March 30, 2023, hours before Asleep At The Wheel took the stage. Cabaniss purchased the 72-year-old music venue back in 2021, saving it from disrepair and the threat of demolition. His team is also in the process of pursuing listing of the entire property on the National Register of Historic Places.
Today, the Longhorn Ballroom is hosting music once again as a completely revamped music destination thanks to some help from the City of Dallas. In May 2022, the City Council approved rezoning the property with modified development standards to allow for an outdoor music venue, in addition to the iconic 2,000 seat ballroom. On September 28, 2022, the City Council approved an incentive package of $4.1 million to help with the $14 million project.
