A hookah lounge that urges its guests to “Catch a Vibe” will open this fall in Fort Worth. Cru Fort Worth will be located at 6318 Hulen Bend Blvd. and is tentatively set to open in mid-November, depending on construction of a kitchen at the space.
Netasha Reed, owner of Reed Family Hospitality Inc., purchased the Cru Fort Worth franchise location for her family. “It’s just a really chill place. We operate as a restaurant during the daytime,” Reed explained.
The menu features small plates such as wings, Cru Baby Burger with beef, salmon, or vegetables, Cru Lollipop Lamb Chops, Lobster Mac N Cheese, and the Cru Seafood Plate. “Our salmon is to die for,” Reed shared.
In the evenings, Cru becomes more about the nightlife. Craft cocktails such as Sour Patch Kids and Cru Lemonade are available, as well as bottle service and a variety of hookah flavors.
Atlanta-based entrepreneur Dennis McKinley first opened Cru, which became the largest black-owned nightlife chain and largest hookah lounge chain in the U.S. in 2021, according to a press release. Cru has locations across the U.S. including in Dallas, Houston, and Austin.
Reed told What Now Dallas there is no cover charge, and Cru Fort Worth will have space for events. “We look forward to everybody showing up to our grand opening. We’re just trying to bring a different concept and vibe.” You can follow Cru Fort Worth on Instagram for updates.
