Three New Bars Join West 7th Neighborhood in Funky Town

Three new venues have opened in the West 7th area of Fort Worth. The first, Varsity Tavern, boasts 8,000 square feet on 2-stories on the corner of Norwood and Morton and will host a soft opening on New Year’s eve, the biggest night for bars in DFW.  The building, formerly an auto body shop, sat vacant for approximately 5 years before partners Josh Reagan, James Hoffman and Micah McDonald began construction in April of this year.

The vision for the $2 million redo is part sports bar, part rooftop tavern, allowing for a variety of events and musical acts to utilize the unique space.  The bottom floor, 5,000 square feet, incorporates a jumbotron with 90’’ flat screens, DJ booth and stage and its own set of sideline bleachers for the ultimate game night or an afternoon of people-watching.

The outdoor space, adjacent to the dance floor, is accessible through 13 feet tall garage doors and will play host to bar games including giant jenga, corn hole, ping pong and ladder golf.   Continue reading
