Upward to The Basement Bar
Fort Worth Weekly - almost 5 years
Have you read the big (long-winded?) cover story yet? Well, speaking of live music venues, have you been to The Basement Bar? Because it’s a pretty legit place for a show. I feel like it flies under Clubland’s radar because its Stockyards location is outside the range of a lot of local music fans — I know it’s a lot easier to park your car on West 6th Street and amble between shows at Lola’s Saloon, Magnolia Motor Lounge, and The Grotto. But if you can get a DD, a cab, or, I dunno, stay sober, making the trek to the shit-kicking hinterlands around Main and Exchange is worth your while.
