It may be too early to call South Main Street in Fort Worth the new Magnolia Avenue. But a big Magnolia Avenue hangout is planning a move to South Main.
The Bearded Lady, which just celebrated its fifth anniversary, is in a classic craftsman house that officially has a 7th Avenue address but is very much a part of Magnolia with its regularly full Magnolia-facing patio, is planning to move to 300 S. Main St..
The move was confirmed in a Wednesday Facebook post. The current Bearded Lady will close June 27 and reopen this fall on South Main Street, according to the post.
Earlier, Amber Calhoun and Trey Neville of Stablemade Retail Group had confirmed they helped Bearded Lady in the relocation.
The move would put the Bearded Lady near The Collective Brewing Project and HopFusion Ale Works, as well as the Shipping and Receiving Bar. There are a growing number of apartments and condos in the area.
The new restaurant will have a larger patio than the current Bearded Lady's, which we have called one of the best restaurant patios in Fort Worth.
But there's more to it than the patio; it also has a good bar list, with more than 30 local and national craft brews and ciders on tap and more than 90 additional in bottles, as well as a burger that not only was featured on the cover of Texas Monthly’s 2016 “50 Best Burgers in Texas” issue (it ranked No. 3), it made one of our food writers consider leaving her husband for it.
For now, the Bearded Lady is still open at 1229 7th Ave., at the corner of 7th and Magnolia in Fort Worth.
