Alot is going on in the Fort Worth Stockyards that’s bringing wagonloads of excitement to all visitors to this gem of the American West. Mule Alley, the Stockyards’ revamped shopping and restaurant haven, is now open and doing business on a grand scale.  Boasting tenants including the American Paint Horse Association, King Ranch Saddle Shop, MB Mercantile, and bars and eateries such as The Biscuit Bar, Provender Hall, Cowtown Winery, Side Saddle Saloon, Second Rodeo Brewing Company, and even a trusty Shake Shack to add to the mix, Mule Alley has also become a serious destination for Western fashion with mega-brand tenants such as Wrangler, Lucchese, and Stetson.

Of course, The Cowboy Channel and RFD-TV maintain their world headquarters just off Mule Alley, bringing an air of excitement as the Western lifestyle media’s leader while broadcasting programming direct from their studios across Exchange Avenue. 

The Hotel Drover, anchoring the south end of Mule Alley and scheduled to debut in early 2021, draws its inspiration from the legendary cowboys who drove cattle to market.  This 4-star Autograph Collection resort offers a rustic-luxe guest experience in the heart of the Stockyards and anchors a multitude of restaurants and boutiques, including 97 West Kitchen & Bar and The Lobby Bar, as well as a Lucchese Custom Collection and Little White Lies artisan shop.

The Fort Worth Stockyards has always been an incomparable destination for anyone who loves the Old West.  Now with a new Western twist, Mule Alley brings a modern sophistication while maintaining its legacy and heritage as one of the most important historical districts in the American West.
