BAR 2909

It didn’t take long for BAR 2909 to make a splash in Fort Worth. Imagine the perfect Texas backyard party, and you get BAR 2909. While the interior features fun, royalty-themed seating, the dog-friendly patio is perhaps its claim to fame. There are even events for you and your furry friend at BAR 2902, like Mutts & Margaritas on Mondays, featuring margs for $2.75 from 3 p.m. until close.

44 Bootlegger

Tommy and Tammy Brown opened the industrial, stylish wine bar in Near Southside last year. The couple crafts all 44 wines and 44 beers served at 44 Bootlegger, and customers can even take cases home with them. Those who dine at 44 Bootlegger are treated to a homey, cozy lounge filled with antique doors and photos.
