We used to go downtown and just wander around (8.0, Flying Saucer, Reatta Roof-top, Jack's, Billy Miner's, The Pig & Whistle, etc.). We also used to hit the TCU bar scene (Aardvark, University Pub...). Now we go to over-priced bars and quietly reminesce about when we used to go out for real.

I very much like the bars at Eddie V's and Grace.

My favorite watering hole after work is definitely 8.0 - specially when the weather is nice and can sit out on the patio. I also enjoy the bars at Whiskey & Rye, Cantina Loredo and the Worthington Hotel - all are very nice and elegant.........The Library is ok I guess, but more suited for kids and the younger crowds.

To dine, Piranha is prolly my favorite - love me some sushi and they do it so very well. I also enjoy Simply Fondue (very romantic for that special date), Daddy Jacks, Mi Cocina, Texas De Brazil, and Sammy's Pizza.

My favorite place to have a drink in FW is, by a wide margin, The Usual here on Magnolia. Love the design, love the unique cocktail menu and the quality beers, love Brad & the gang.

Plus, one can walk from tasty vegan dining to tasty Prohibition-era cocktails in just about one minute or so.

Nothing says romance like unbuckling the belt a notch or two in the car after they serve you all that food...

Grace has a GREAT bar and I like their bar food better than the main menu.

The GingerMan on Camp Bowie for the beer nerd.

I'm going to try out The Usual after I learned you can have Nona Tata deliver your order to you.

Times Ten winery for some great wine.

Lola's is just a great bar in every aspect...

Good call! I have been to The Usual two of the past three times I have been in Fort Worth. The interior is awesome and the staff is terrific. I recommend either the martinti (made with gin and an onion instead of olives) or the Old Fashion. This is quite possibly the most unique bar in the city and I recommend that everyone pay them a visit.

On a side note, I was pleasantly surprised by the street and pedestrian activity on Magnolia on Friday & Saturday nights. The lights in the tree's look great and really makes Magnolia inviting to pedestrians at night. I love seeing Magnolia and the Near Southside as a whole continue to organically redevelop into a vibrant mixed-use area.

Both are pretty good spots - but:

* PF Changs is really crowded on the weekends. Be prepared to wait a while if near prime time.

* Pete's gets extremely crowded too. If you want a table, get there soon as they open as well. Also, beware, the show is really, really, loud...... This place would not let me smoke a cigar inside one time, kind of mad me made with all the cigarettes in the place. I mean a piano bar w/out cigars - really?

If you're looking for elbow room, Iíve found the quickest way to thin a place out is to light up a stogie.

After a couple hours in a smoky environment add in some libations and I can barely smell the quarter bottle perfumeries walking by, that is, if I can smell over the stuff I bathed in. If those with fully functional olfactory systems start checking the bottom of their shoes when an aficionado lights up or walks by, would seem obvious why an establishment would request they not share.

I use to wonder why that place always had such a high percentage of females to males, now I know.

We're very proud of the new lights - think they add a lot to the street. It's been a struggle to get them all finished, and while there are still a few trees not yet working, it's good enough to really make an obvious difference now. And the re-striping to remove car lanes and add bike lanes has helped calm traffic a great deal to make it a more pleasant place all around.

Our next project is a big bike parking initiative, which we're working on with Fort Worth South and Trinity Bicycles. Fun times.

8.0's is having a roof built over the outside patio. It is going to be clear/see thru - pretty amazing. Rain will no longer be a problem and will still be able to see the day sun & night sky. Should be complete by end of the month.

Do they plan to leave holes for the trees?

Does anyone have a rendering of what is being proposed? I hope to be proven wrong but I can't imagine how the experience would be the same or that the trees won't be affected.

A couple of trees were removed so that the foundation studs could be built - but their absence is hardly noticable. The awning is clear, you can literally see the sky as if you were looking thru a glass window. The patio cover will go over the trees, those currently remaining will not be touched. It's a pretty incredible structure - just have to see it.

I've been to all of those a few times. Still make it over to the Goose now and then. I actually like that ba - it's dark, small (sort of). and just a cool older dive. Ha, of course, have to hope the ceiling doesn't cave in - that place is hanging on by the thread of it's life. Won't mention any names, but a certain very wealthy family here in town has been trying to buy that building for a while now - owner won't sell.

Best bet it to shoot to over dress a bit, being over dressed creates less friction, unless your at Billy Bob's.

V and B9 are nice but like any place downtown, every night has its own flavor, sample a few to find one that suits your taste.

The patio cover/roof has been completed at 8.0 finally. It is a really incredible structure, you can pretty much see right thru it to the sky from underneath.

Looks pretty cool, kinda like a wing, can't wait to see how it handles those 40+ mph wind gusts squeezing through the City Center Towers.

Wow, I drove by this last night and was impressed. I look forward to sitting under the canopy to make my final judgment but it looks great. I'm not sure about the silver as it is such a drastic contrast against the trees. A nice self weathering steel would have made it disappear more. (But no body asked me blink.gif) Good job whoever designed it.

It would appear that if it ever just snapped off, the trees could prevent serious injuries to patrons below. Does look pretty neat, worthy of some photos.

Pretty good friends with the operations director for Sundance Square - he said the structure is supposed to be engineered to handle winds up to 110 mph. I was under it y-day, first thing I noticed is how warm it was - almost like a greenhouse effect. There are talks of installing fans underneath it, that would be a good idea.

Wherever they sell Rahr beer and serve authentic Bufflalo-style wings is where I'll be. There's only two places that I know of that can do that--Buffalo Bros. and the patio at Buffalo Bros. (oh, and there's sports all over the place, too)

Would be nice if you could make a decision based on that criteria, but I think it probably comes down to mood for most.

Hard to find. That's why I like to take people to the Fort Worth Club to have a drink in the Library. There are some TV's, but the sound is usually down low and you can definitely have a good conversation.

Surrounding tennants have long complained about the noise from 8.0. Last year Sundance Square and 8.0's went in together and addressed the problem. A entirely new sound system and high tech speakers were installed. This really changed the noise output and has made a big difference - for the better.

When I want to relax at a nice, quiet bar minus the technology wave - I like to go to Whiskey & Rye or the bar at the Worthington. Both are really classy and nice.

So are there any places worth visiting in Sundance Square these days? With graduate school, the 9 to 5 and two businesses, I've lost touch with the goings on other than who's closed.

I guess that answers that question!

Not that I can get out anyway, putting in the long hours, as it appears most are lately.

I mean no disrespect but I think the lack of replies is that it is a silly question. What are you looking for? Dinner? Grace, Daddy Jack's, Mi Cocina, Ferre, Taverna... Nightlife? Scat Jazz Lounge, Flying Saucer, 8.0, Fat Daddy's... This weekend @ Bass Hall >>> Cirque de la Symphonie Presented by: Fort Worth Symphony. http://www.dfw.com/2...wn-at-bass.html Coming soon... Lonestar in Sundance Square http://www.lonestarsundance.com/ In other words there is always something going on in Sundance Square (and nearby)

Didn't mean to offend just trying to spark some discussion, it's really a beat to death topic and this is just one thread variation of the same topic, I just assume everyone has been following all of them for the past 6 or 7 years. I guess it's more of a question of where are forum followers hanging out these days, anything worth sacrificing a few hours of a good nights sleep for? I believe the reason the topic comes back over and over is from one year to the next, everything changes, if it's not the freshly minted 21 year old drivers licenses drinking "hey look at me shots" on one night, they're being replaced by established couples within walking distance trying to find a place to meet with friends on the next.

I can see many of those locations from my couch, you can get a good list by simply googling Restaurant, Bar or Pub. So where does Jeffwd go on a night out in Sundance Square?

I'm working on some downtown Fort Worth centric apps and am trying to categorize downtown establishments, best places for singles, couples, 18-21, 21-25, 25-45, etc... as well as Jazz, Rock, Country, Live and so on. I have lots of work and recon ahead.

Jeffdfw likes to go to Grace and Mi Cocina, 8.0 and Scat Jazz Lounge and Jeffdfw would like to try out Whiskey and Rye... Unfortunately, Jeffdfw's job of thirteen years is going away next month so I am sitting at home most nights saving as much $$$ as I can :unsure:

Sorry to hear that, I believe many of us on the forum can relate.

I know everyone's situation is different, I had so much time invested in my previous company I had become trapped, best decision I never made. I still kick myself though for not getting off my butt and sticking with a dead end company as long as I did. Hope things turn out well for you.

So if you're not interested in the get drunk "Lets Party!" crowd and just want to go out maybe grab a bite and socialize with friends, what would be the top three choices downtown?

Thanks David. My situation sounds like it is very sililar to yours. The only reason I am sticking around is the hope of a nice severance package... I will not miss driving to Las Colinas every day and hope to land a gig in dowtown FW!

It's quite good, and the setting is amazing. It's popular with Near Southsiders who are hanging around the bike shop in South Main urban village, since it's an easy walk/bike from there, and it's a good distance for a bike pub crawl evening from places on Magnolia and Park Place.

It's nice. The only suggestion I have for them is to lose the harsh flourescent lights over the bar. They make it hard to see the taps and really mess with the mellow vibes of the rest of the space.
