Nestled in the heart of downtown, Sundance Square features a lively and diverse music scene.
Free Live Plaza Music Each Weekend
As the sun sets, the weekend streets of Sundance Square come alive with melodies. Every Thursday through Sunday evening, Sundance Square Plaza transforms into a stage for live music, showcasing a myriad of talents and genres. Performer calendars are posted each Thursday.
Immerse yourself in a night out in Sundance Square. Outdoor dining, twinkling lights, and the buzz of a community coming together make these musical evenings memorable. And when the plaza's live music stage tunes wrap, you won’t have to go far to find more live music and keep the party going.

The Hall is renowned for its perfect acoustics, exceptional sight lines and ambience on level with the great halls of the world.
Scat Jazz Lounge
Set in the basement of the historic Woolworth building, Scat Jazz Lounge is reminiscent of New York underground clubs. It is dark, swanky, cozy and intimate, providing guests with an escape from the street noise and some of the best music in the city. The rich wood accents, art deco features and red curtain only add to the enjoyment of a superb cocktail and a great band. Scat Jazz hosts one of Fort Worth’s longest running weekly shows where you never quite know who is going to show up.
Flying Saucer Draught Emporium
This fun and interactive spot features trivia night, yummy eats and an expansive selection of draft and bottled beer.

Whether you’re a jazz, mariachi, R&B, western swing, modern country or pop enthusiast, Sundance Square is where Fort Worth goes to experience local and regional music. So stroll through Sundance Square Plaza under the Texas stars, take in a Broadway show at the Bass, be soothed by the soulful stylings of incredible jazz musicians or relax in a beer garden with an acoustic set.
