A veteran bar group in Fort Worth is debuting a new venue: Called Birdie's Social Club, it's in the Cultural District at a familiar address: 2736 W 6th St., IE, the space that was formerly Lola's, which is relocating.
Birdie's is a casual, open-air concept, spanning the entire block between 5th and 6th streets, with three indoor and outdoor bars, multiple patios, food, drinks, and entertainment. According to a release, it's now open.
The club is from Cowtown Concepts LLC, creators of the Curfew Bar, with inspiration culled from a variety of sources spanning Route 66, country clubs, and the pastel flourishes of Palm Springs, evinced via large-scale murals and colorful details such picnic benches, umbrella tables, and loungers that have transformed the historic space.
The venue has both an outdoor covered stage for live acts and an indoor stage called The Clubhouse for intimate shows. They'll be open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.
Details on the food are still forthcoming, but the cocktail menu for the outside space includes Birdie's Laughing Margarita; an Arnold Palmer with house-made peach tea available by the pitcher; and the Little Hollywood, a riff on the Dirty Shirley with bourbon and an ancho chile kick.
Inside features a cigar-lounge feel with a moody upscale interior, where they serve classic cocktails like the Tom Collins and the Gimlet.
But it's also designed to be family-friendly, and has an all-ages policy until 10 pm.
A grand opening is penciled in for Wednesday, August 31 from 4-8 pm with the Powell Brothers, Fletcher's Corny Dogs, and complimentary champagne from the Bubble Bus while supplies last.
