Galleria Dallas has announced an entertainment venue as its new anchor space on the northwest side of the 1.9-million-square-foot shopping center.

The mall has become an iconic shopping experience in Dallas for over 12 million visitors each year, touting itself as “a premier mixed-use destination for shopping, dining, culture, and entertainment,” per its website.

Now, it’s set to introduce a unique addition to Texas: the state’s first-ever Netflix House.

Netflix House is a permanent entertainment venue where fans can enjoy their favorite Netflix series and films, exclusive merchandise, dining options, and more. The venue aims to provide an unforgettable encounter, bringing beloved Netflix stories and characters into immersive experiences beyond the screen, per the Galleria Dallas news release.

“Welcoming Netflix House to Galleria Dallas allows the center to sit at the forefront of the experiential economy, which is such a key aspect of retail today,” said Galleria Dallas General Manager Angie Freed.

“We’re focused on giving our guests the best possible experience as they shop, dine and spend time with friends and family,” Freed added.

The Galleria’s Netflix House will be one of only two in the entire United States. According to the Netflix website, the other location is planned for King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

Galleria Dallas is in Dallas Council Member Jaynie Schultz’s District 11. Anticipating the positive impact the Netflix House will have on the City, Schultz said in a statement to The Dallas Express that “the selection of the Dallas International District for the Netflix House is a clear validation of this area as the corner of ‘Main and Main’ in the Dallas region.”

“The arrival of Netflix House in the Dallas International District will enable Dallas residents and their families to enjoy shopping, dining, and entertainment locally, further contributing to the city’s rapid growth,” added Schultz.

Dallas’ Office of Economic Development worked to facilitate coordination among various City departments and help Galleria Dallas and Netflix House “navigate the permitting process” (known for being particularly difficult), explained a news release from the City.

The entertainment venue is anticipated to open in the fall of 2025, and two levels of the anchor space are currently under construction.

“The Galleria Dallas is a fixture in Dallas and now with Netflix House it will be even more of a tourist destination. We are excited about all the developments in the Dallas International District to showcase the best of Dallas to visitors coming from near and wide,” said Visit Dallas president and CEO Craig Davis.

In addition to the Netflix House, other projects that will soon make for a more attractive Dallas International District include:

  • A series of International Night Markets that celebrate the diversity of Dallas’ food, culture, and art, kicking off again in September 2024.
  • A revamped Montfort Drive made into a “Complete Street” with $5.4 million in public streetscape, hardscape, and landscape improvements, expected to be completed in late fall 2024.
  • A new PreK-12 STEAM school with a joint Dallas Independent School District/City International Library, anticipated in 2026.
