While there will be multiple events that will be fun for everyone, most older revelers will hit up one of the Metroplex’s many bars to say adios to 2017 and kick off 2018 with a bang. So, without further ado, here are the best bars that will make New Year’s Eve a night to remember in the Metroplex.
Black Swan Saloon
2708 W. Elm St., Dallas, TX 75226
Every city in Texas has that one saloon that is a favorite with the drinking public, and in Dallas’ Deep Ellum district, this is the favorite among Dallas drinkers. The Black Swan Saloon has that Texas laid-back vibe that will be perfect for a fun New Year’s Eve celebration, so grab your cowboy hat and boots, and scoot your way to the saloon.
2418 Allen St., Dallas, TX 75204
No, this isn’t the funk band we’re talking about here, but the famed cocktail bar that has become an institution in Dallas’ swanky Uptown. Parliament is a bar that fit this part of Dallas well, with great drinks and an atmosphere that screams “see and be seen.” In short, this is the perfect place to party with your beautiful squad on New Year’s Eve.
1408 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth, TX 76104
It will be “the Usual” at this Southside bar, and that’s a good thing. When you come to The Usual, you’ll be greeted with that Fort Worth charm that is hard to find anywhere else and the Metroplex. Add that to their great drink specials and laid-back atmosphere, and you have yourself one heck of a bar for New Year’s Eve.
105 W. Exchange Ave., Fort Worth, TX 76164
You could hit up the swanky bars, or you can make your New Year’s celebration more down-to-Earth at this Northside dive bar. The Basement bar is everything you could ever want in a dive, and the cold, cheap beer will help kick off your 2018 the right way.
501 E. Division St., Arlington, TX 76011
If you’re in the Texas-sized suburb of Arlington for New Year’s, then make this bar your number one stop for great drinks and fun. Milo’s Bar is a classic dive bar that also has some of the best pool tables in the Metroplex “Mid-Cities” region, and both of those bode well to hopping into 2018 on the right note.
