Foursquare Tips

  • Ask any of the bartenders to surprise you with a cocktail. Be adventurous!
  • Probably the best feature of the bar (besides the cocktails) is the balcony. Ask anyone whos been to Bad News and theyll probably say, I love the balcony! When youre on the balcony facing the ...
  • It wasn't voted Best Bar for nothing! Try anything and you'll see why. Cheryl and the other bartenders are friendly and talented!
  • Keep an eye out for Cheryl Gibbs, one of the finest bartenders in H-town. Creative, hard-working and beautiful talent. If she's working, she's my bartender.
  • This place is intimate, classy, and just all-around great. You can tell the bartender the type of drink you want and he'd come up with something. 9 times out of 10 it comes out amazing. Love it!
  • The bitterest bar in town.
  • Best backbar in houston.
  • Great bar keeps and a beautiful space! Real perk is that the capacity is kept low so you always have space, even on the busiest of nights.
  • When youre on the balcony facing the building, you might be reminded of New Orleans by the ornate faade. Face the MetroRail side, and now it feels a little like Chicago.
  • Beautiful space with cocktails by the best in town! Check out the patio balcony too.
  • Love the patio, definitely worth a drink out here
  • Great craft cocktails!
  • Bar owner is an asshole.
  • Go up the stairs towards the attorney's office and look for the door with the small fox.
  • Excellent Old Fashioned.
  • One of my favorite bars in Houston! Amazing cocktails, and the atmosphere is perfect for happy hour or a night out!
  • Balcony overlooking main street is pretty awesome. Great cocktails.
  • Previous review I left was not meant for here. I love this bar! It's beautiful, and the bartenders are awesome!
  • Cool space, but be prepared to pay for everything. You don't even get chips and salsa! 2 people, 5 tacos, guacamole, 4 house margaritas, and a side of refried beans- $100.
