Looking to branch out of the Dallas scene? 8.0 – pronounced “eight-oh”, for all you rookies out there – is hands down one of Fort Worth’s best-known hot spots. Located on Sundance Square downtown, the bar features daily food and drink specials in addition to their killer happy hour and live music setup.
The bar boasts a lively, yet laid back atmosphere, made possible by the frequent live bands and local art on display. The eclectic menu features delicious food and an incredible variety of wine, beer and original mixed drinks and martinis. The specials change daily, but happy hour is every Monday to Friday from 3-7 p.m. There are two happy hour staples for this writer – a $3 “8.0 Blue Thing” and half-priced chicken quesadillas.
As one of the Metroplex’s best-known Tex Mex spots, Blue Mesa Grill is the proud host of arguably the best happy hour in the Metroplex. Each location hosts Happy Hour at their tequila bar, which features enough variety of tequila to make your head spin, but don’t be overwhelmed. When in doubt, Blue Mesa’s signature Blue Margarita is always a tasty choice. The fun atmosphere and delicious drink menu is complemented by fresh, made-to-order complimentary quesadillas and warm chips and salsa.
To add to the fun, each location celebrates a specific distillery every second Tuesday of the month. These “second Tuesday” parties offer free tastes and delicious fresh fruit margaritas on a discount. The tequila bar prides itself on using only locally-grown fresh fruit in their margaritas – and yes, you can taste the difference.
