The Usual - Fort Worth - Near Southside


Recommended Posts


The Usual is a new place opening on Magnolia Avenue in Fort Worth's Near Southside urban district (just south of Downtown), which has become the hotbed of Fort Worth's indie urban movement. The brainchild of Brad Hensarling (owner of The Chat Room bar a few blocks to the east), The Usual takes an interesting focus: it's Prohibition-era cocktails in a smoke-free environment.

In the works for two years, The Usual is finally about to open. The photos on Fort Worthology were taken just before the staining of the concrete floors. All of the furniture was not in place, nor was the patio complete.

The design of The Usual comes from the mind of designer Kara Keith, and the project was built by contractor Bill Smith. It has an awesome modern style with a mid-century feel, of the sort that's never really been seen in Fort Worth before. It reminds me of places I saw in Portland, especially the Doug Fir Lounge.

The Usual will have a cocktail menu of around 28 drinks at launch, expanding to over 100 as things progress.
