A new hotel is opening at the Texas Live complex in Arlington with lots of extras including five spots for dining and lounging.

Called Live! by Loews – Arlington, the hotel is a joint venture between Loews, The Cordish Companies, and the Texas Rangers and will open in late August.

A release promises that it will bring an "upscale hospitality experience" to the Arlington Entertainment District, which includes Texas Live! and Globe Life Field, the new home for The Texas Rangers due to open in 2020.

The 14-story hotel will have 300 guest rooms, including 23 suites. It'll also have meeting and event space, a Tower Terrace, a lawn for events, an outdoor infinity pool, and a private rooftop terrace.

There'll be a serious commitment to food and beverage, with five signature restaurants and bars for dining and lounging, as follows:

Cut & Bourbon. This will be a classic steakhouse featuring a variety of cuts of meat sourced from Texas, plus game and seafood.

Bar Bourbon. This lounge in the lobby will boast a "vast bourbon selection" plus also private bourbon lockers for aging.

Arlington Clover Club. Craft cocktails will be the thing at this outdoor mixology bar and restaurant, whose menu will be a mix of international and American cuisines.

Soak. The poolside bar and lounge will serve cocktails and light bites.

River Market. An in-house organic market will offer grab-and-go items, including juices, sandwiches salads, pastries, and coffee drinks featuring Arlington's Salter Bros. Coffee.

Appointed as executive chef is Mouhssine "Moose" Benhamacht, who began his journey at Spice Market, the Southeast Asian-inspired eatery founded by acclaimed chef Jean George Vongerichten. Benhamacht has worked for Loews Hotels & Co for a decade, in hotels such as Loews Atlanta, Loews Don CeSar, and, most recently, Universal's Aventura Hotel.

The hotel restaurants will join a robust selection of restaurants at Texas Live! which opened in August 2018, including celebrity spots such as Troy Aikman's Troy's, Pudge Rodriguez' Pudge's Pizza, and Guy Fieri's Taco Joint.
