Hi everyone,

I am hoping to find information on the fort worth area. My roommate and I are visiting Dallas soon and want the opportunity to quickly see Fort Worth areas as well. Can anyone suggest the best (non college crowd) young professional bars/nightclubs and the best (classier) areas to explore and people watch?

Thanks so much for any suggestions!

Definitely downtown in Sundance Square. For people watching, it's really hard to beat Pete's Dueling Piano Bar Pete's Dueling Piano Bar: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and Las Vegas

check out the area along So7 across the river from downtown FTW--very busy--
Movie Tavern cinema, restaurants/bars-- seems to get lot of action from people on way home from work as well as college kids
the old Montgomery Ward warehouse has been gentrified into condos on top and retail below--other places started showing up in that general area--now revitalized and taking on life of its own separate from Sundance

there are some great restaurants north of downtown in Stockyards Historical area as well
some places with live music--but most of them are distincly playing into the "West" theme

Glass Cactus - Gaylord Texan, Grapevine,TX.

Scat Jazz Lounge - Downtown Fort Worth.

Museums near downtown Fort Worth, they usually have something going on at night, if you are into that.

Comedy Clubs - Hyena's (Stand-up comedy); Four Day Weekend (Role-Playing comedy). In downtown Fort Worth.

Come to Fort Worth, less driving, park your car, free on night/weekends, and walk around, in Dallas, everything is so distant from another.

I was in the new So7/Crockett St. area last night, and I felt like I was in another city! So many young professional people walking up and down the sidewalks. Of course, it was a beautiful night, and all the restaurants had their patios opened and they were packed. I was at Hacienda San Miguel. Right next door is Patrizio's. Right across the street is Fireside Pies. Next to that is Tillman's. Down at the end of the block are Bailey's and Brownstone. In the other direction is Terra Mediterranean and Delaney's Irish Pub.

I've got to believe that this area is taking the desirable crowd away from Sundance Square. But maybe not...hopefully there's enough money and people to go around!

I love Fort Worth!

I'm kind of excited too. I don't think the crowd will leave Sundance Square, we just have more options. I still like it, the atmosphere, so many things to do. A website I just found after reading the FW weekly, Worth Going.

(off topic) Before the recession hit, we had so many cranes in/around downtown. We could have had an ski resort (Bearfire Resort) nearby, didn't happen due to financing. I wish we got that, it would've be interesting.
