Bowie House, Auberge Resorts Collection opens in Fort Worth

Bowie House, Auberge Resorts Collection, the luxury, urban retreat in Fort Worth, Texas, opens its doors. Merging the classic Western personality of Texas with a modern feel, the hotel captures the approachable sophistication, cultural vibrancy and equestrian spirit of Fort Worth.

Set on Camp Bowie Boulevard in one of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods, the hotel is also a love letter to the community. The hotel features a supper club-style spin on Texan cuisine in three dining and drinking venues, a day spa and unique experiences with a Texan soul, from private dining at The Modern Art Museum to donning a custom Nick Fouquet hat.

“It’s with great excitement that we open our second hotel in Texas and expand the urban footprint of Auberge Resorts Collection in such a special city,” Craig Reid, president and CEO, Auberge Resorts Collection, said in a statement. “Following the success of Commodore Perry Estate in Austin and with a new property in Dallas on the horizon, we are thrilled to be leaders in introducing this booming state’s lauded Western lifestyle and flourishing art, dining and music scenes to the world.”

Located 35 minutes from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Bowie House, Auberge Resorts Collection anchors a 30-block promenade of acclaimed museums and restaurants just moments from the legendary Will Rogers Memorial Center.

Architectural and interiors firm BOKA Powell has achieved a union of time-honored and contemporary design, combining brick and cast stone with glass features, a pool terrace and gathering spaces. Celebrating past, present and future with owner Jo Ellard’s signature, art-savvy style, interiors capture the unique identity and generous welcome of a quintessential Fort Worth home. The wood vaulted foyer lobby sets the stage stylistically with weathered limestone floors, plaster walls and arched openings paired with unexpected art and furnishings. Works by artists including Ashley Collins, Max Zorn, Don Drumm and David Yarrow define spaces throughout the hotel, while guestrooms feature original black and white photography by Constance Jaeggi, artfully capturing Texan ranch culture.

"Collected from all over the world over 15 years, the art collection includes over 400 pieces of fresh, interesting, conversation-starting pieces chosen specifically for Bowie House," Bowie House owner Jo Ellard said. "People ask me all the time what the style of Bowie House is, but like the art collection, it’s not any one style, it’s an expression of different elements coming together to create something truly unique. Sophisticated and comfortable, reflecting its distinctly Texan setting in an entirely original way, Bowie House welcomes everyone who steps inside not as a hotel, but as a wonderful, one-of-a-kind Western home—that was the goal."
