Construction has begun on Rogers Roundhouse, a bar and kitchen located at 1616 Rogers Road, situated behind University Park Village and just minutes from the Trinity Trail. RJM Contractors Inc. has been selected for the build and is on track to complete the project in early 2019.

Co-owner and Fort Worth resident Tommy Koons, a successful bar and restaurant operator, and local business owner Bourke Harvey, a Fort Worth native, have partnered to make this project happen. Together, they are transforming the property – a former air conditioning service warehouse – into what will soon be the newest Fort Worth eatery. The property is co-owned by Harvey, Robert Dozier and Randall Stepp, both also natives of the area.

Rogers Roundhouse will celebrate the historic relationship between Fort Worth and the railroad industry. Located a stone’s throw from Davidson Yard, one of the oldest and most prominent railyards in the nation, Rogers Roundhouse is named after the yard’s retired engine repair facility, or roundhouse. Although decommissioned decades ago, the roundhouse at Davidson Yard is still visible in modern aerial photographs and is a major part of the city’s heritage.

“I love watching Fort Worth grow while still holding on to its small town feel,” said Koons. “I want Rogers Roundhouse to feel like an extension of your own backyard. It’s going to be a great place to hang out and enjoy good food, a cold beer, and friends and family, any day of the week.”

At approximately 10,000-square-feet, Rogers Roundhouse will feature both indoor and outdoor seating, complete with a spacious patio and TVs throughout. The menu will offer simple and consistent yet innovative fare; thirty taps will flow with an expansive range of domestic and craft beers; and a robust list of spirits will combine for a curated list of cocktails. Much of the menu – as well as many of the decor elements – will be a subtle nod to the railway industry.
