By the numbers: The venue will have the capacity to hold 1,000 people.

Details: It features a reclaimed Texas dance hall pine floor and six yes, six — full-service bars.

What they're saying: "The Stable building will always own an important piece of history on this property, having served multiple purposes over the last century," Pearl CEO Mesha Millsap said in a statement. "We are excited for its next chapter as a world-class live music venue."

The bottom line: The new venue adds expanding entertainment options to a rapidly growing Broadway corridor near Pearl.
