I enjoyed the experience I shared with a few friends at the Ace of Clubs in Arlington. While it was a bit smoky for my taste, the drinks were cold, low-priced and the people were fun. However, the most surprising thing was the band. The band played a range of country music from the latest hits to some older tunes. Their sound was great - like they should be playing in much bigger clubs. Several of the bands I have seen in the Fort Worth Stockyards are nowhere near as good as these guys. I am sure you will hear more about them in the future, but for now, I would take a night to head to the Ace of Clubs in Arlington. This might be the only time you will be able to catch this great band and not have to pay a cover or $3 for a beer!
Pros: No Cover, Low-Priced Drinks, Great Band
