As its name implies, Scat Jazz Lounge is a live music venue specializing in jazz performances. This 1920's speakeasy style lounge features an interior combination of swank and retro decor, making it easy to imagine you really are drinking at a Prohibition Era joint. The place is literally underground; you have to take an elevator down below ground level to get in. Once inside, the jazzy performances, stiff drinks and classy, retro elegance make this a juice joint worth coming back to.
Towering angels watch over this magnificent Sundance Square concert hall which was modeled after New York City's Carnegie Hall. Great care was given to assure that this space would provide the best possible acoustics. Bass Performance Hall opened in 1998 as a venue for the acclaimed Van Cliburne International Piano Competition, an event held every four years. The hall also serves as home to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the Fort Worth Dallas Ballet and the Fort Worth Opera. Visiting companies of all kinds — opera, modern dance, Broadway companies, etc. — perform in this elegant and majestic space. Valet parking and group discount rates are available too. Call for show times.
The Jubilee Theatre, founded in 1981, is located in Fort Worth's Sundance Square entertainment district. This fine venue acts as a showcase for the talents of African-American performers, writers and directors. While dramas and comedies have their place here, the specialty is musicals. The turn-of-the-century backdrop is superb, and Sundance Square's preservation of the city's past architectural styles complements the work that is going on inside Jubilee.
While the name is probably responsible for getting many in its doors, Filthy McNasty's live music culture is what brings people back. First built in 1920, the building housing this Fort Worth staple has been many saloons through the years, but in 1978 it became Filthy McNasty's and hasn't looked back. The bar features live music acts, two pool tables, and enough Texas swagger to fill the Cowboys' stadium. The lack of cover makes it an attractive option for those looking some live tunes while knocking back a few Buds.
Rodeo Exchange has been in business since 1986, which makes it somewhat of an institution around these parts. Come on Tuesday nights for free dance lessons — just don't forget your cowboy hat. Famous for their low-price drinks, Rodeo Exchange offers a number of drink specials, including happy hour until 8p and Friday Ladies Nights. Fridays and Saturdays feature live music, mostly country, from acts ranging from local favorites to national stars like Trace Adkins. Fun times, cheap drinks and good old fashioned country tunes make this club a hoot.
