Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge

1311 Lipscomb St.
Fort Worth, TX 76104
Young Fort Worth professionals and show-goers alike flock to Live Oak Music Hall and Lounge for the bar’s wide selection of craft beers and for its large, theater-style stage. Modern décor, roomy booths and track lighting greet you on one half of the building, while the stage’s giant red curtains slide open for live music and accentuate the 20-foot ceilings on the other side. A huge rooftop patio — more than 1,000 square feet — overlooks the Fort Worth skyline, with surround-sound speakers carrying a live feed of the bands performing inside.
