West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

H

by Michael H. Price

“Happy to follow the bumpy brick road,” reads a newspaper headline from 1981 — a lasting assertion that Camp Bowie Boulevard’s historic brick pavement must endure, and never mind the occasional traffic-engineering idea of modernizing the pathway with concrete and asphalt. Now as then, seekers of entertainment, adventure, and dining experiences remain “happy to follow the bumpy brick road,” as a principal gateway to Fort Worth’s west side and its many commercial and civic offshoots. The attractions range from a burgeoning West 7th Street district to a broadening cultural and historical district – connecting southward with University Park Village, westward with the Chapel Hill shopping-andentertainment development, and branching out further with new moviegoing venues, boutique eateries, and varied opportunities for strolling and sightseeing amid architectural innovations on a comfortably human scale. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter characterized Fort Worth as “where the West begins.” And for locals and visitors alike, the west side marks the beginning of that beginning: The West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. Prominent among the newer landmarks is Dickies Arena, a versatile 14,000-seat showplace named after the Fort Worthbased manufacturer of workplace clothing. Located at 1911 Montgomery Street within the Will Rogers Memorial Center, Dickies Arena complements and expands the scope of the adjacent Will Rogers Complex, providing a new home for the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavy-duty commercial, artistic, and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st cen6

tury, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West 7th Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brickpaved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining, to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and special-interest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an ever-expanding array of art galleries, stage-and-screen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. One long-standing favorite, Domain XCIV, 3100 W. 7th Street, originated in 1994 along Camp Bowie Boulevard. Persistent growth has led to a 6,500-square-foot showcase, combining fine furniture and vintage European treasures and accessories. Collections include Theodore Alexander, Wesley Hall, and Guild Master. Domain XCIV has long supplied anchorage for the villagewithin-a-city developments of the West 7th Street area. A newly settled popular attraction, the Grand Berry Theatre at 2712 Weisenberger Drive, emerges as a showplace for independent and art-house motion pictures, complementing the mainstream Hollywood movies at Movie Tavern West 7th and

enhancing the art-film fare that the Modern Art Museum has brought since the early 2000s via its Magnolia at the Modern screening series. The Grand Berry is an early example of the expanding entertainment potential of the historic Foundry District, located north of Montgomery Plaza. Farther along to the west of the west, the newly dedicated Como Community Center’s $12 million complex at 4660 Horne Street has installed a gymnasium, a library, after-school activity centers, and all-ages activity programs. Luncheon attractions, sparked by the addition of Alabama-based Chicken Salad Chick in Ridglea Village, have grown to include such established draws as Blue Bonnet Bakery, Feastivities, Secret Garden Restaurant, and The Lunch Box. Wild Acre Brewing Co. has opened a Camp Bowie location to complement its downtown home base. A longtime popular favorite, Ol’ South Pancake House at 1509 S. University Drive, anchors the lower reaches of the west-by-south side and lends a sense of history to the immediate area’s dining opportunities. University Park Village, too, is rich in variety — a high-end shopping district offering such popular brands as Ann Taylor, Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Anthropogenie, and lululemon, among casual and fine-dining experiences alike, and the high-tech wonderland of the Apple Store. The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street, and just northward are additional cultural touchstones: Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture. The collection spans early nineteenth-century art to mid-twentieth century modernism. It is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Nearby is the Kimbell Art Museum still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America” including its new Renzo Piano Pavilion addition. The neigh8

boring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a work-of-art 2002 building designed by world-renowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independentstudio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texasbred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oiland-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and the digital Noble Planetarium.The OmniTheater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound system and enhanced lighting. The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FWMS&H. The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from those who lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still a dominant feature within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show.


Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens.The Europeandesigned Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. Adjacent to the Botanic Garden is the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) whose mission is to “reduce

its footprint on the natural world as well as protect and restore ecosystem services.” BRIT’s building was designed as an example of how much of this can be accomplished. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

The panoramic views of the Stockyards and glimmering lights of downtown are more than enough to keep you coming back trip after trip, but the carefully curated food and drink menu are what sets Ático apart from all the dining options available in the Stockyards. A wide array of Spanish-inspired drink and food options are available to those looking to expand their horizons and take a quick trip to Barcelona. ¡Vamos! Tue.-Fri. 4:30 p.m.-10 p.m., Sat. 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Kitchen closes at 9 p.m. each day, restaurant closed Mon. 2315 N. Main St., 682-255-5112, www.aticoftworth.com. THE BISCUIT BAR - #TheBiscuitBar has finally come to Fort Worth, and I couldn’t be more grateful or, suddenly, hungrier. Located in the Stockyards’ hip Mule Alley, Biscuit Bar is the brainchild of Jake and Janie Burkett. After undergoing a personal family tragedy, in classic southern style they were showered with a bounty of literal comfort food. One item kept standing out and repeating itself, though: biscuits. So, the couple played with the idea of creating a build-your-own-biscuit bar at home, featuring biscuits made from scratch and lush toppings such as fried chicken, maple syrup, scrambled eggs, gravy, crispy bacon, and, of course, butter. Every menu item was created in the Burkett home kitchen, and the growing family decided to give the gift of comfort food right back to DFW. Come for the biscuits, stay for cocktails called “cereal sips” like their Cinnamon Toast Punch. Be sure to allocate time for a food coma snooze afterward. Sun.-Thurs. 8 a.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 8 a.m.-10 p.m. 128 E. Exchange Ave., #640, www.thebiscuit.bar. CAFÉ MODERN - An exciting partnership with Wolfgang Puck Catering has brought seasoned veteran Jett Mora to lead the culinary team and bring his talents to take over Café Modern’s artfully crafted cuisine.

Enjoy the indoor and patio seating against the backdrop of Tadao Ando’s iconic architecture in the thriving Fort Worth Cultural District. Dining is an artform, and Jett Mora is Chief Culinary Curator. Lunch Tues.-Fri. 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m., brunch Sat.-Sun. 10 a.m.-3 p.m. beverages and light bites Tues.-Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (Fri. until 10 p.m.) For reservations, call 817-840-2186. 3200 Darnell St., www.themodern.org/café. CATTLEMEN’S FORT WORTH STEAK HOUSE: Steak isn’t only for dinner- try the daily lunch menu! You can get a luncheon steak that includes a baked potato, salad and their famous homemade rolls. Start your meal off with a savory appetizer: “Shoot’em Up Shrimp,” crab cakes, calf or lamb fries, onion rings, and the list goes on. Cattlemen’s offers BBQ ribs, lobster, chicken, pasta, pork chops, and “The Old Texas Standby” chicken fried steak. Prime rib is served on Friday & Saturday nights. Cattlemen’s charcoal-broiled extensive steak selection has been called “the ultimate in a fine steak.” Steaks can be ordered with a variety of enticing sauces like teriyaki, cognac pepper corn, béarnaise, or gorgonzola. Seafood selections include lobster, jumbo shrimp, crab cakes, halibut, salmon, tilapia, and catfish. Top off your dinner with a homemade dessert: apple or pecan pie, cob-

Main St., 817-624-3945, www.cattlemenssteakhouse.com. EDDIE V’S PRIME SEAFOOD - Seafood, steaks, and rhythm. Eddie V’s Prime Seafood was inspired by the great classic seafood restaurants of New Orleans, San Francisco, and Boston. It offers the freshest seafood right off the docks, and USDA prime center-cut steaks aged 28 days and broiled to perfection. A sommelier is on hand to help you best complement your entrée, and of course Eddie V’s also has delicious, hand-crafted cocktails in the event you’re a “cocktail guy” like me. And I’m not even a guy! Listen, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Come get in rhythm in the V-Lounge with dining and live music nightly. Open Mon.Thurs. 4 p.m.-10 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 4 p.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 4 p.m.-9 p.m. Museum Place, 3100 W. 7th St., 817-3368000, www.eddiev.com. ESPARZA’S - If you land at the DFW International Airport hard up for Tex-Mex, first of all, I understand you. Second of all, you’re in luck. Touted as “independently owned, internationally known,” Esparza’s is perched in the same town as the airport: Grapevine. Since 1985, the Restaurante Mexicano has served up delicious fare that includes Tex-Mex classics like enchiladas and tacos, but also innovations like fried avocado stuffed with brisket and an assortment of quesadillas, nachos, fajitas, salads & desserts. They have a patio strung with lights and call themselves “the margarita capital of Texas.” Enough said. Mon.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 10:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. 124 E. Worth St., Grapevine, 817-481-4668, www.esparzastexas.com. HONKY TONK KITCHEN - Executive Chef Alex Walters brings a passion for authentic Texas cuisine and hospitality to Billy Bob’s.

Serving as the banquet chef and sous chef prior to being offered the Executive Chef position, Alex poured his heart into bringing great food to patrons from all over the world. The food selections at Billy Bob’s are far greater than the restaurant’s name “Honky Tonk Kitchen” implies. In addition to the Honky Tonk Kitchen, Chef Alex oversees all culinary related business including the banquet operations where Billy Bob’s may host from 500-5000 in private events each week. Mon.-Wed. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Wed.-Sat. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. & 6 p.m.-close, Sun. noon-close. 2520 Rodeo Plaza, 817-624-7117, www.billybobstexas.com/about/honky-tonk-kitchen. LOS VAQUEROS - The incredible Cisnero Tex-Mex family recipes of Los Vaqueros have fed this guerita since I was knee high to a grasshopper, long before I was old enough to have one of their incredible margaritas. Whenever I think about Los Vaqueros I smell the sizzling fajitas sailing past, see the never-too-busy-for-you staff smiling in greeting, and taste the perfect queso/chip ratio. Located in an old Stockyards warehouse, the restaurant manages to be both cozy and cavernous, and is 100% authentically western. Los Vaqueros accommodates events (like my dad’s 50th birthday party!) as easily as they do a cozy lunch for two. Tues.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Sun. 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m., closed Mon. 2629 N. Main St., 817-624-1511, www.losvaqueros.com.


97 WEST KITCHEN & BAR - They say the west begins in Fort Worth, and I say the pioneering never ends. And everyone knows the copywriter for Fort Worth Key Magazine is the authority on such things. More important than my unsolicited philosophizing is brand-spanking-new Hotel Drover’s resident eatery 97 West Kitchen & Bar. Executive Chef Grant Morgan leads the charge on an adventurous dining experience with offerings described as “contemporary Texas fare, elevated ranch classics, and reimagined Southern comfort foods” (e.g., sweet tea marinated fried green tomatoes). 97 West Kitchen & Bar also offers an adult beverage curation composed of local spirits and an ever-changing menu of seasonal drinks. Brunch Sat. & Sun. 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Dinner Tues.-Thurs. 5 p.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 5 p.m.-10 p.m., closed Sun. & Mon. 200 Mule Alley Dr., 682-255-6497, https://hoteldrover.com/ dining/97-west-kitchen-and-bar. OL’ SOUTH PANCAKE HOUSE - A menu to suit every taste. Famous for their signature German pancake, a crepe style cake filled with fresh-squeezed lemons, whipped butter, and powdered sugar, they also offer the “Dutch Baby,” a smaller version of the same. Ol’ South has many savory breakfast options, such as The Skillet, a fluffy homemade biscuit smothered in home-style gravy with eggs, hash browns, cheddar cheese, your choice of meat, and an array of toppings. On offer for those looking for healthy options are grilled Cajun salmon, a turkey avocado wrap, grilled chicken spinach salad, and more. From an egg white Greek omelet to sinfully good southern chicken and waffles, from a juicy T-Rex Burger to sizzling breakfast tacos, Ol’ South Pancake House has it all. Mon.-Sun. open 24 hours. 1509 S. University Dr., 817-336-0309, www. olsouthpancakehouse.com. PRESS CAFE - Casual breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour, curbside cocktails/family dinner packs, and weekend brunch? Count me in. For all of it. Press Cafe’s extensive menu includes notables like crab mac n’ cheese, banana walnut waffles, ahi heirloom salad, and short ribs. All of their burgers are made/ground in-house (including the veggie patties), and are just $10 during happy hour (Mon.-Thurs. 3 p.m.-6 p.m). Press is right on the Trinity, so when your day calls for some good, old fashioned contemplation and clearfork martinis while staring at a body of water, this is your place.

PROVENDER HALL - prov·en·der | \ ˈprä-vən-dər \ Definition of provender; 1: dry food for domestic animals: FEED; 2: FOOD, VICTUALS. Ugh, don’t you love it when a bunch of hot millennial chefs open and operate an atmospheric, American West restaurant and feed you Skillet Cornbread with Whipped Honey Butter and Slow Smoked Beef Rib for Two, that you secretly try to eat for one? With the help of Chef Scott Lewis and Kellen Hamrah, Chef Marcus Paslay of Clay Pigeon and Piatello Italian Kitchen fame is at it again, this time in the Stockyards’ Mule Alley. The large outpost’s open kitchen specializes in meats either smoked or cooked over their wood-burning grill, all accompanied by an array of southern classics like their Pimento Cheese, Hoppin’ John, and Cheddar Cheese Grits. They have a robust liquor list and, given their location, of course they have a quality Moscow Mule on hand. But they’ve also got a little ditty called Golden Cheeked Warbler I have my eye on… Thurs. & Sun. 5 p.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 5 p.m.-10 p.m. 122 E. Exchange Ave. Suite 110, 817-782-9170, www.provenderhall.com. REATA RESTAURANT - Choosing from the best that southwestern food has to offer, Reata (Spanish for

rope) offers a menu that ranges from steaks to Creole dishes to southern standbys like their West Texas Pecan Pie. An example for the first course is Reata signature jalepeño and cilantro soup. The main course could be pan-seared pepper crusted tenderloin with port wine sauce with sides like bourbon creamed corn and bacon wrapped asparagus. Finish your meal with a dessert classic or something new, like dessert tacos with caramelized bananas and chocolate gravy. Reata has a carefully selected wine list that complements its Texas cuisine and delicious cocktails like their Clear Fork Cherry Vodka Limeade. Reata is the name of the ranch in the movie Giant made in 1956, based on the novel by Edna Ferber. Lunch every day 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m., dinner Sun.-Thurs. 5 p.m.-8 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 5 p.m.-9 p.m. 310 Houston St. in Sundance Square, 817336-1009, www.reata.net. RODEO GOAT - In a stiff competition between Rodeo Goat and some other really good burger places, Rodeo Goat was recently named the “Best Burger in DFW.” The Goat really is the G.O.A.T.! Some of their choices include Bad Hombre with maple bacon, gouda, swiss, Rahr & Sons (local brewery) Ugly Pug onions, mango pico, cream cheese spread, and Rahr & Sons Buffalo Butt Burn Hot Sauce and the Oh Whitney, featuring garlic-roasted cremini mushrooms, pickled onions, gruyere, and soy caramel glaze. Rodeo Goat also has homemade vegan patties and Impossible burgers! Must-have sides are hand punched fries, Texas caviar, and cheese fries surprise. Wash it all down with a wide range of beers and finish with dessert: a milkshake or goat balls. What’re goat balls? You’ll have to go to find out. Daily 11 a.m.-10 p.m. 2836 Bledsoe & Currie St., 817-877-4628, www.RodeoGoat.com. THE ROSE GARDEN TEA ROOM - The Fort Worth location is located inside The Mercantile and Arlington’s inside Gracie Lane, two curated marketplaces of 200+ dealer booths with impressive collections of gifts, home décor, antiques, fashion, furniture, and more.

Fort Worth finally got its very own Shake Shack. Longtime lovers of the Shack will be thrilled, and people who’ve yet to go to one will be receiving a personal wellness check from me. It’s simple, really: burgers, hot dogs, fries, and shakes... and one fabulous muenster and cheddar cheese-stuffed portobello burger for vegetarian friends. Let’s just say this- people love Shake Shack so much they get tattoos of the logo and cater their weddings with it. As if serving their Texas special Cold Shot Concrete made of vanilla custard, chocolate custard, malt, salted caramel, dark brown sugar, and chocolate toffee isn’t enough, Fort Worth’s Shack is also partnered with Alliance for Children, a nonprofit that protects Tarrant County children from child abuse.

unique places in Texas: an exciting blend of old and new. The livestock industry began to develop here in the 1880s. There were cattle, sheep, hog pens, and horse and mule barns.

Evidence of that is the twice daily cattle drives at 11:30 a.m. & 4 p.m. Come and explore 14 restaurants, 13 bars, 35 shops and over 17 must-see attractions all surrounded by the rich history of the Fort Worth Stockyards.

FOR ADDITIONAL OPTIONS, VISIT WWW.KEYMAGFW.COM/SHOPPING CAMP BOWIE DISTRICT - If you’re a person who likes women’s clothes and accessories, you’ve found the motherlode. With cool names like “You Are Here” and “Keeping Up with the Joneses”, I counted at least ten boutiques filled with a bounty of clothes, accessories, and gifts, all with different buyers, of course, so all with different stuff! Other retail favorites are Doob, where you can get a realistic miniature cut out of yourself Honey-I-Shrunk-the-Kids-style, Archie’s Gardenland, which is run by probably the nicest horticulture-savvy people you’ll ever meet, and Carter Bowden Antiques, an ever-changing ocean of one of a kind pieces. CAVENDER’S BOOT CITY - To Cavender’s, “boots are the roots!” Founded by James and Pat Cavender in the 1960s, Cavender’s is the fastest growing western-wear chain and, of course, it started right here in Texas. Fifty-plus years of success is chalked up to affordable, quality products and remarkable customer service. Count on Cavender’s to carry brands such as Lucchese, Ariat, Roper, and many more. Their merchandising is much more than boots, though: they have hats, workwear, gifts, clothes, home goods and, my personal favorite, a robust section for kids. Who doesn’t love a miniature cowboy or cowgirl? Cavender’s remains a family-run business to this day, and in 2019 the retailer was inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. The museum is conveniently located in the Stockyards near the Cavender’s store, which, by the way, is a two-story brick situation crowned with an enormous teal boot piped in red. Follow the boot for western treasures. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. 2601 N. Main St., 817-625-2391, www.cavenders.com. DOMAIN XCIV - There is something truly special about a boutique that has been owned, operated, and loved on by the same customers and owners (in this case, the wonderful Mark Vaughan and Tad Watts) for over 25 years. Since 1994, Domain is where the charm of the west is steeped in a deep appreciation for European style and antiques. A whimsically painted armoire with luscious, down-filled decorative pillows spills out next to a sideboard featuring lamps and leatherbound books. Shelf after shelf of silky bath products sit next to elegant gifts like silver bottle stoppers and baby spoons. Lampe Berger diffusers and Juliska place settings and Nest Fragrances, oh my! Of course you can find chic guest towels and luxury linens- classic- but don’t miss Domain exclusives like their blanc marble domino set and gourmet gunpowder salt(!). The business is built on providing sincere customer service and an unmatched product mix. Customers shopping here for a special hostess gift, an exquisite antique, a room full of furniture, or a full on wedding registry are all given the same personalized attention. The longevity of Domain XCIV is testament alone that it’s worth visiting. Like so many of their products are exclusive to Domain, Domain XCIV is exclusive to Forth Worth.

THE MERCANTILE - At The Mercantile you’ll find what you’re looking for and things you had no idea you absolutely must have. With over 200 vendors, there is a wealth of everything from handmade jewelry to one-of-a-kind furniture to hostess gifts to both quirky and classic home décor. It’s also home to the Rose Garden Tea Room, which means you can shop all morning, refuel, and then carry on all afternoon. If you don’t need to marathon, that’s fine, I’m just saying The Mercantile has your back, okay? Each booth is like entering a completely different store without having to go outside- ideal for Texas’ erratic weather. There are baby gifts, original paintings, vintage place settings, serving bowls, and platters and, of course, plenty of TCU gear. The Mercantile was started by philanthropic businessman Holt Hickman, and the antique mall reflects his values by holding special events that benefit local causes. Go get lost in the booths; it’s a treasure hunt. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-6 p.m. 7200 Camp Bowie Blvd., 817-3770910, www.the-mercantile.com. MULE ALLEY - A fairy-light strung concourse inside of The Stockyards, Mule Alley deserves its own listing. Although the barns it’s composed of have been standing for over a hundred years, they’ve been gutted to outfit retail and restaurateurs aplenty. The quaint street dead ends into another exciting development, too: Hotel Drover. Mule Alley is the place to be! Every week there seems to be something new swinging its doors open there: shops, restaurants, bars and, for some lucky people, even some office spaces. 122 E. Exchange Ave., www.mulealleyfortworth.com. A Mule Alley stand out so far is MB Mercantile & Supply. They’ve filled the entire store with treasures that make special gifts and opportunities to “treatchaself.” The whole place is an 1800s saloon steampunk vibe, like if a dusty cowboy were driving a penny farthing to catch a train out of the Stockyards, all while wearing one of those spooky plague beak masks. Are you with me? There are mountains of musky candles, lavish soaps, Americana games, handmade jewelry, vaudevillian toys, and notebooks with things like vintage science diagrams on them. Underneath everything is another curiosity waiting to be discovered, like bowls of miniature magnifying glasses and old rail ties for purchase. The whole place is magic, it’s some of the best merchandising I’ve ever seen, and it’s right here in Fort Worth. Mon.-Thurs. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Suite 580, 817-9283230, www.mbmercantilefw.com. In regards to a more classic outfitter in the Alley, look no further than Lucchese Bootmaker, home of your bespoke forever boot. It all started when Lucchese brothers Salvatore and Joseph emigrated from Italy to Texas, bringing their father’s cobbler legacy with them. With fans from Prince Harry to Sandra Dee, Lucchese boots are canonical. Simply put, it’s where elegance meets western utility. Party trick: It’s pronounced lu-kaysee. Mon.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-6 p.m. On days the store opens accordingly, the hour of 11 a.m.-noon is reserved for at-risk population shoppers only. Suite 500, 817-918-7999, www.lucchese.com. Dolly Parton famously pleaded, “Why’d you come in here lookin’ like that, with your cowboy boots and your painted on jeans, all decked out like a cowgirl’s dream?” I have a strong feeling her inspiration was


the one and only Wrangler. While ubiquitous in the world of denim, a Wrangler store as fabulous as the one in Mule Alley isn’t as common. There are only three like it in the country! Fort Worth is truly being treated to the best. Now go get some famous jeans and break some hearts, ya hear? Mon.-Sat. 11 a.m.7 p.m., Sun. noon-6 p.m. Suite 140, 702-239-8107, www.wrangler.com. King Ranch was established in 1853, and boy is it tenacious. During the Reconstruction Era the ranch had to get back on its feet, and part of that was hiring in-house craftsmen to create their very own saddles. After mastering that craft, King Ranch output expanded into more leather gear, all branded with King Ranch’s iconic “W.” Due to legend-fueled demand, they began selling products outside of the ranch and King Ranch Saddle Shop was born. Suite 530, www.krsaddleshop.com. Proper Supply Co. is the latest store to swing open its saloon doors to shoppers in Mule Alley and features western wear with their crown jewel: Stetson. The store describes itself succinctly on its Instagram as an outpost of carefully curated, American-made, storydriven, merch, all with exceptional service. They carry gorgeous, silversmith-crafted jewelry for everyone, belt buckles galore, and boots. Many, many boots. There are things like sterling silver martini glasses and exclusively designed clothes for the bougie cowboy in your life. Suite 550, www.instagram.com/propersupplycofw. NEAR SOUTHSIDE - Near Southside is near… cool people. Truly. Sinaca Studios is both a glass-blowing school and shoppable gallery. A shop called Leaves has books and tea. You see what they did there? Etico is a boutique dedicated to sustainable shopping and is entirely woman-owned. Supporting tribal artisans worldwide is Brooha Market, and Kendall Davis Clay features local handmade ceramics for purchase. Are you sensing a trend? If you’re looking for environmentally friendly wares and a DIY vibe, this area is for you. 1606 Mistletoe Blvd., 817-923-1649, www.nearsouthsidefw.org/home. THE STOCKYARDS - The Stockyards is overflowing with incredible restaurants, and of course there are plenty of great stores in which shoppers can work up an appetite. Find sturdy, beautiful boots at Cavender’s or Leddy’s and hats at the aptly named Best Hat Store. Get laced up with elegant equine necessities like saddles, spurs, and ropes at KO Trading. If you’re visiting, snap up a non-cheesy souvenir at Texas Jakes Trading Company, Destination Fort Worth, or Texas Hot Stuff. Flip through old and new presses alike at Chief Records- while they have all kinds of genres, this is where you’ll find the good stuff: true blue country vinyl. There’s something else for hipsters- Texas Western Legends satisfies all your Victorian steampunk attire needs. If you enjoy looking like an 1800s Texan school marm ready to jump on a horse (who doesn’t?) head to Jersey Lilly Old Time Photo Parlor at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame to capture proof you were born in the wrong era. There are historic walking tours on offer, and did I mention open containers are permitted in the Stockyards? Enjoy. Hours and phone numbers vary by store, so be sure to check out the website: www.fortworthstockyards.org/home/ shop#categories. SUNDANCE SQUARE - Sundance Square was first developed by the Bass family in the 1970s, and its retail offerings and general vibrancy have aged like a fine wine. Duck into Haltom’s, a Fort Worth jeweler since 1893, Willow House, a family-owned boutique filled with hand-picked and regularly updated selections, and Houston Street Toy Company, where “the focus is less on electronics and more on creativity and the senses.” Hours

and phone numbers vary by store, so be sure to check the website: www.sundancesquare.com/shopping. UNIVERSITY PARK VILLAGE - If you’ve ever had a frustrating, expensive experience at an Apple store, make some noise! If you don’t even use Apple products, make some noise! Fortunately, the store is flanked by fabulous shopping to both help blow off steam and pick up necessities. There are several well-curated boutiques, often family-owned, like The Impeccable Pig, Altar’d State, and Runway Seven. There are also comfortable classics such as Chico’s, Anthropologie, and J.Crew. There’s a lot to see, and University Park Village’s sleek façade and retail offerings make the Apple store waitlist all the better. What do you mean it’s $150 for you to turn my phone off and on again? I’d much rather spend that at Kendra Scott. Hours and phone numbers vary by store, so be sure to check the website: www. simon.com/mall/university-park-village. WATERSIDE - Settled next to the Trinity River, aptly named Waterside is a pretty cluster of stores, shops, and trendy places like CycleBar. There’s a colossal REI, which is especially key right now since people have a newfound interest in getting out into wide open spaces, magical places where fresh air is kept. Also, if you’ve been staying in and have become a bit of a self-made chef, you might consider upgrading your tools at Sur la Table. It’s pronounced sir-la-TAWbluh, and I’m telling you so you can impress your friend Pierre. There is more info on Pierre in the West 7th listing below. My favorite place in Waterside, though, is Pinspiration. They have an ever-changing menu of crafts and DIY projects based on what’s trending on the internet that month. They also have a bar, so, you know, you can buy rainbow pom poms and a beer. It’s a real one-stop-shop. Bryant Irvin and Arborlawn Dr., www.watersidefw.com. WEST 7TH - From the historic Montgomery Plaza all the way to the latest place crowned cool by TCU students, there’s a lot happening on West 7th Street. This is the neighborhood where the fabled Domain XCIV is located, after all. You can buy small-batch, artisanal treats at Dude, Sweet Chocolate. This ain’t your stuffy friend Pierre’s chocolaterie in the 7th arrondissement à Paris, non. It’s better. Head to Esther Penn boutique for a sartorial curation by Texas women touched by sunny LA style. Peruvian Atelier has been a purveyor of jewels for 35 years, and FIG Designers outfits women in luxurious, European bespoke clothing. Stop by Uncommon Angles for kaleidoscopic home showpieces, and discover more avant garde homewares at Wrare. Those last few words were a tongue twister. After all that shopping, if you realize you forgot to get something for a loved one waiting at home, swing by The Flower Market on 7th for a true-blue European cash-and-carry floral situation. You can make up a bouquet as you go with florists on hand to guide you along. www.fortworth.com/ about/neighborhoods-districts/west-7th. WESTBEND - If you’ve been carefully studying Tan France’s art of the French tuck on Queer Eye, you know he loves a good Bonobos store. Guess which shopping area has a Bonobos? WestBend, my friend. At Dear Hannah you’ll find adorable accessories like beaded rosé bottle earrings.
