Your Prince Has Arrived

Steve Steward
Long ago, near the pastoral hamlet of Westworth Village, there once was a bar called Froggy Bottom Beach Club. Nestled in the lee of a weedy levee on the north side of White Settlement Road, Froggy Bottom was the Fort Worth ver...


Stockyards Tavern

Fine Morning I’ll Shoot Ya

Last Call
In the mid-to-late aughts, I worked at a company headquartered in the Stock Exchange Building on East Exchange Avenue. During that time, I probably put on 15 pounds of lunch-break weight from patronizing places like Dos Molinas...

The World Is Spinning

Last Call
I recently noticed that the wannabe-tastemaking Dallas-based music blog Gorilla vs. Bear referred to Fort Worth singer-songwriter Leon Bridges’ debut album as “timeless” –– even though the record doesn’t come out un...

New, Improved Cooper Street

Last Call
Last week, I wrote about this place in Arlington on South Cooper Street called The House, which was originally a bar called Monte Carlo’s. At some point in the recent past, the owners moved the business from one side of the s...

Take it to The House

Last Call

Last Call

Downtown Abbey

LAST CALL
In my humble estimation, Irish pubs are a default kind of bar. They’re cozy, with lots of warm lighting and dark wood, and emphasize brown liquors, darts, and billiards. I’ve never been across the Atlantic, so I have no ide...

Upper 90: Around the Bend

LAST CALL
I think most of the things that I hate the worst can be attributed to a matter of one individual ruining it for everyone. It’s the kid who prompts the recall of a really cool toy because he manages to stub his pinky toe in a ...

Fort Worth Nightlife for Bucks and Ducks

LAST CALL
On Monday the first college football championship of the post-BCS era will be played in Arlington at JerryWorld, which means that a bunch of out-of-towners will be here, presumably from Oregon and Ohio. While I’m tempted...
