Some prefer a sophisticated craft cocktail while others count on a cold schooner. Bars are as varied as the patrons who frequent them. As we continue to profile nominees for the 2024 CultureMap Fort Worth Tastemaker Awards, it’s time to raise a glass to contenders for Bar of the Year.

Among these 10 contenders are some longtime watering holes and some brand new hangs. Get to know them, and all the nominees, in our special editorial series leading up to the big event: the Tastemaker Awards party.

Taking place May 2 at The 4 Eleven (411 S. Main St.), the annual tasting event and awards ceremony, hosted by chef Jon Bonnell, will shine a light on top local restaurant and bar talent.

A limited number of Early Bird tickets are on sale now at discounted rates of $60 for general admission and $99 for VIP (includes early access to the event, valet, and a dedicated bar). Don't wait - prices will increase March 31.

Now, let's belly up for a closer look at the 10 nominees for Bar of the Year, presented in alphabetical order:

There are nothing but friendly vibes at this White Settlement Road watering hole – maybe because patrons can start imbibing as early as 7 am during the week. The Alice in Wonderland-themed bar (3237 White Settlement Rd.) draws night shift workers for early morning happy hour that runs all day until 7 pm. (On Saturdays and Sundays, happy hour is 11 am-7 pm.) There’s also plenty of room to spread out with table seating both inside and out thanks to glass garage doors that slide open to a string-lit covered patio area. Visit on Wednesdays for music bingo, Thursdays for karaoke, and daily for sports on TV and tacos from the permanent food truck outside.
