Where to Meet
From art galleries to historic Western properties, Fort Worth is full of unique venue options. Adjacent to the Will Rogers Memorial Center campus, the 14,000-seat Dickies Arena, opening this fall, will offer a new venue option for meeting organizers. Nearby, the historic Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum serves as a major equestrian venue. For event planners looking for more historic options, there’s The Ashton Depot, a century-old venue featuring the property’s original stained-glass windows, barrel-vaulted ceilings, and marble floors.
Ten minutes from downtown Fort Worth is the Whiskey Ranch, nestled on 112 acres of a historic golf course. And for meeting organizers looking for a more contemporary setting, there’s Artspace111, an art gallery, and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, an education and research facility available for private events and tours. Other unique event venues include Shipping & Receiving Bar, offering a lounge, outdoor stage, and warehouse-style event space accommodating up to 1,000 people, and Lola’s, a rock club featuring an indoor music venue and a 1,000-capacity outdoor stage and bar.
