    Cowtown Coliseum: Stockyards Championship Rodeo

    by ATXtraveler Written Sep 28, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As the entertainment portion of the 1st Annual Big Texas VirtualTourist Meet, we opted to go to the Fort Worth Stockyards Championship Rodeo, which takes place every Friday and Saturday night at the Cowtown Coliseum. This is a part of the National Finals Rodeo system, which feeds cowboys into the national circuit. The evening begins with some bronco busting, adds in calf roping, team roping, saddle bronc and bull riding, but the true highlight of the night is the two contests that always draw the most participants. What we are talking about here is the calf scramble and the mutton scramble. The whole family is invited to the fun here, as these two events pit all the young calf ropers (age 8 to 16) and the young mutton busters (>8 for boys, and cowgirls of any age). When all the participants are out in the arena, they let the calf or sheep loose with a small ribbon tied to its back. Whichever child gets the ribbon, receives a prize. Family fun and hi jinx ensue.

    Dress Code: Western wear preferred, but everyone is invited.

    Billy Bob's Texas: Honky-Tonkin

    by Astrobuck Updated Dec 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am not a night club type of guy. It's just not me. That's why you don't see many nightlife tips on my pages. However, this place is probably the only nightclub I truly liked. It has live music, 2 dancefloors, pool tables, bars, food kiosks, an arcade and a gift shop. Many of today's famous country bands and singers put on live performances here from time to time. There is even a place to watch a live rodeo!

    This is one place I would definately recommend as a must see if you are A die-hard country music fan!

    Dress Code: Boots and cowboy hat.

    Sundance Square; The best night life in town

    by Jannacle Updated May 10, 2005

    If your in downtown Fort Worth I suggest spending an evening in Sundance Square. You will find several nice clubs and and bars along with excellent dining and a beautiful very modern movie theater. This is also a safer area than some so you can walk from club to club and visit comfortably. The only down side is that parking is often scarce so be prepared to walk a bit. Low key dining at Pizzeria Uno is a must and 8.0's if it's still around has a terrific atmosphere and the food is quite good too. Many of the clubs have roof top dining or dancing.

    Dress Code: Most of the clubs are business casual attire for evening.

    J&J Blues Bar: Over the Shoulder Bolder Holsters..

    by keeweechic Updated Feb 14, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    J&J Blues Bar is tucked away in a little corner of Ft Worth is J&J's Blues Bar. A well known spot for Blues and R&B fans. Looking more like a large tin shack, inside you will find a cosy atmosphere with table and chairs (with room to move) and a bar.

    Flashy old neon signs and gaudy advertising add some colour and for conversation, an assortment of bra's dangle from anything they can find to be draped over. Just the coolest little place. J&J's hosts numerous well known local and national blues bands including some great legends. We saw Kim Wilson (ex The Thunderbirds) who was fantastic. Great little intimate show.

    Dress Code: Their code : 'We don't have no stinkin dress code! Come dressed to party'.

    Captain's Den: Local Neighborhood Blues Dive

    by JamaicaBound Written Feb 8, 2003

    This neighborhood blues bar & grill is open 7 days a week. Patrons are mostly locals, except for weekends when the blues fans arrive.

    Happy hour is 11 am to 2 am every day, plus there are daily drink specials. The grill is open every day until 11 pm, offering hamburgers, chicken, fries, and special plate dinners.

    Johnny Mack hosts a blues jam every Tuesday night for local blues musicians. He is a great host -- playing the rubboard and livening up the crowd.

    Bands play every Friday and Saturday night. Most are locals, but there are occasionally big name stars. There is no cover.

    Dress Code: Very casual, although some may dress up a bit on Saturday nights.

    J&J's Blues Bar: Home of the Blues in Fort Worth

    by JamaicaBound Written Feb 8, 2003

    This club is one of the best blues clubs in Fort Worth. Open Thursday through Sunday each week, you can catch local bands as well as big-name entertainers!

    Plastered on all of the walls are posters from some of the music greats who have played here, and various "undergarments" hang from the ceiling.

    Drink prices are average -- $4.50 premium, and about $2 beer. Cover charge applies.

    Dress Code: Casual dress is the norm, although some dress up a bit more on Saturday nights.
    Thursday night is bikers night, so expect lots of leather and motorcycles.

    Where to Go

    by strawberrycube Updated Jan 12, 2003

    Just go downtown (you can get there by following signs - or go north on 287 until you see it). It's full of movie theaters, all sorts of restaurants, clubs, shops, and of course the Bass Hall. Check and see what performing arts are being featured while you're in Fort Worth, too -- there's always something good.

    I'd especially recommend the downtown scene for dates and the like -- if you're going with your whole family, there's still plenty to do, I'd just recommend having it planned out in advance, like a movie or what play you want to see.

  • Billy Bob's Texas: Western swing

    by 1Nomad Updated Jan 7, 2003

    Billy Bob's is famous for it's honky tonk western theme. This is the home of the world's largest bar. Inside you'll find bull riding, live (big name) entertainers, several dance floors, souviner shops and of course, plenty of bar space. This is primarily an adult kind of place, but there are a lot of kids that show up here. I would guess that they are mostly tourists that have come with their parents. As you would expect, they don't serve alcohol to minors under 21. If you come, it's not mandatory to dress up in western attire, but most do. If you find you don't have a thing in your closet to wear, there are a number of shops in the area. Billy Bob's is located in the old section of the Fort Worth Stockyards. Ft. Worth is known for the numerous cattle drives that took place during the good ol'e days. However, if you do go to Billy Bob's, be aware that at night, things can get pretty rough. The parking lot is well lit and I can't recall anything happening there. If you plan to stroll along the river, just keep an eye out. The river is a couple of blocks over. During the day, there's not much of a problem. Check out their website for much more information.

    Dress Code: No mandatory codes. Usually everyone dresses in some type of western wear. You can usually pick out the tourist's. They are extreme western or not at all. It is a come as you are kind of place.

    White Elephant Saloon

    by keeweechic Written Dec 29, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    White Elephant Saloon is a tradition on Exchange Ave. A real old west authentic saloon with a long wooden stand-up bar and brass foot rail. There are lots of interesting pictures hanging on the wall, tombstone rubbings from the graves of two of Ft Worth's famous sons, Long Hair Jim Courtright and Luke Short. Jim was the Marshall and a volunteer fireman then upgraded to a private detective. He was a cool shot with his gun. Luke was a gambler with a faster hand a poker, still it was Luke that pulled his gun and shot ol’ Jim dead before he could even think about drawing his gun.

    Apparently this is the bar where Chuck Norris and his mates hang out at in the TV show 'Walker Texas Ranger. There's live music every evening, and a nice outdoor garden.
