Since 2008, Lola's Saloon has been one of the top venues in North Texas, arguably the best in Fort Worth. Each week, local and national acts shuffle through the bar, which, perhaps thanks to the name, has a looser, more comfortable feel than its counterparts in Dallas. The décor behind the bar is a mix of thrift-store artifacts and vintage metal signs. The capacity tops out at around 300 and the stage sits only a few feet off the ground, so each show has an intimate feel, especially when acts like Dr. Dog and Fleet Foxes drop in for a show.

This is as hip as it gets in fort worth, dark beautiful wood inside with the friendliest staff ever! They even have washers out back so you can play in the sand while waiting for the band. Seen a couple of local acts here and just can't recall a better time. If you go early you may doubt me, but as it gets later the place really fills up!
Everyone serves tapas these days. Boring. Lola takes the small-plates idea a step further, designating an entire room as a chef's tasting room. They even hired a second chef, David Uygur, to handle the space. Diners choose between a five-course, 10-course or 15-course meal. Not to worry: Each plate contains about two bites' worth.
