Neighbors: The Bomb Factory

Posted by Gabrielle Costa on

Here at Jack Mason we take pride in where we come from. For us, Deep Ellum is more than just a neighborhood–it’s the place that we call home. We want to share just how special our home is and the community that makes the neighborhood feel like home.


The Bomb Factory has quickly become Deep Ellum’s premiere music venue. Opening at the height of resurgence of the neighborhood by veterans of the music and Dallas venue industry, many legends have graced the Bomb Factory stage including PHISH, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, The Ramones and more. We caught up with The Bomb Factory promoter and owner Gavin Mulloy on what makes the neighborhood so special.
