Lone Star Live, encompassing five venues inside one location, is primed to be the new "place to be" in downtown Fort Worth.
The location (425 Commerce St.), underneath Barnes & Noble and the AMC Palace 9 movie theater, has previously been home to the USA Cafe, City Streets and Lone Star Nite Club. Where those now-defunct spots were essentially nightclubs, Lone Star Live will be an entertainment destination featuring Hyena's Comedy Nightclub, the brand new Queen City Music Hall, the 'B' Bar (think beer, whiskey and retro arcade games such as Ms. Pac Man), and the Red Room, which will feature karaoke. The Jager Lounge, a private VIP area inside Queen City Music Hall, will open later this summer. The 20,000 square-foot Lone Star Live is also equipped to host corporate events ranging in size from 10 to 750-plus.
While Hyena's has been a downtown Fort Worth staple for over two decades, it moved to this locale a year ago, but with the Lone Star Live revamp, has now added a sparkling new non-smoking showroom (smoking will still be allowed in the Red Room lounge area). The Queen City Music Hall will seat between 700-800 people and should enhance the live music scene in downtown Fort Worth, with the booking of both national and local bands.
For its soft opening (which began Thursday and runs through Saturday night), Lone Star Live had comedians Dustin Ybarra (Showtime's Californication and the 2011 Matt Damon film We Bought a Zoo) and Paul Varghese performing in Hyena's, followed by a performance by disco band Le Freak in the music hall. Ybarra and Varghese will be at Hyena's Saturday with Los Lonely Boys performing Saturday, June 15 in the Queen City Music Hall.
