In the 1800's one of the founders of Dallas, John Neely Bryan established a trading post on the bluff of the Trinity River with the Caddo Indians.

Recently, there has been a major re-vitalizationinitiative which has brought in significant economic development.
** The West End is a Historic District registered with the National Register.
** The West End attracts 7 million people a year.
** 300 businesses in the West End employ over 40,000 people.

The Matador Club is an upscale sports bar aimed at adults especially sports enthusiasts. They have flatscreen TV's to keep sports fans entertained along with a digital online Jukebox for today's hits in music. When I was there the bar had a number of attractive young women inside. I heard it can get very crowded on Friday and Saturday Nights.
Dress Code: I saw some people in jeans and some dressed well.
After dinner I had a rum and coke, and watched more of the baseball game on the big screen TVs. The rum and coke was strong enough and the waitress cute; but not the model for the sign. The music was in Spanish for the most part.
Dress Code: Casual

J&J Blues Bar
J&J Blues Bar is tucked away in a little corner of Ft Worth. 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. (937 Woodward Street, Ft Worth).
