Ready to celebrate 2022? Here's where to celebrate New Year's Eve in Fort Worth.
Blue Mesa Grill offers NYE Brunch packs to go for pick-up New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day (allow 24 hours’ notice, please). The packs serve six for $130, and they’re full of food favorites from Blue Mesa’s brunch including migas, French toast bread pudding with cajeta, cheese enchiladas and corncake – along with a bottle of sparkling wine and OJ. If you’d rather, you can go to Blue Mesa and grab brunch New Year’s Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The in-restaurant brunch adds the carving stations for brisket, salmon and ham along with Belgian waffles and other goodies for $28 for adults, $7 for kids ages 6-11.
Grand Cru Holiday Cheeseboard Cheer runs now through New Year’s Eve day. Get a terrific cheeseboard paired with two glasses of wine from their 'By the Glass' wine list for $37. The cheer is guaranteed any time during their hours of operation, and it might make a great gift for the wine lover in your life.
Reata’s beautiful patios seem like a perfect way to bring in New Year’s Eve, and the prix fixe menus they’re presenting sound amazing. Pair a rib-eye, pan-seared sea bass or pistachio-crusted elk with your choice of appetizer, soup or salad, and dessert (prices vary by menu item choice).
Groove to the tunes of the '80s at Fort Brewery & Pizza as a lineup of local and national recording artists ring in the new year with all the 80's rock hits. The kitchen will be open until 11:30 p.m. serving a special menu curated just for the event.
Bowlounge is open until 2 a.m. on New Year’s Eve (ages 21 and up after 8 p.m.). You can eat, drink and hit a strike or a spare. Call or book online to reserve space for parties of 10 or more.
Pinstripes knows that NYE with the kids can be a bit of a challenge, so they have two balloon drops: The traditional one at midnight, and a balloon drop at 8 p.m. for the kids to toast with sparkling cider (adults have the option of sparkling wine). The bistro’s full dinner menu will be available, and live music will serenade guests until midnight.
Zoo Year’s Eve is the wildest place for kids to be on New Year’s Eve. The overnight experience at the award-winning zoo includes pizza, a movie, zoo-themed crafts and a night hike. Plus, continental breakfast the next morning. Zoo members get a 10% discount on the $85 per child ticket price.
If you aren't up for a late-night celebration to ring in 2022, this one's for you. Put on those sparkles and head to the Fort Worth Museum of Science & History from 10 a.m. to noon for Noon Year's Eve featuring a special event about global traditions, resolutions, and DIY crafts.
