San Angelo is such a nifty place to visit and Miss Hattie's is on Concho Street where there are many interesting things to do and see.

“a little naughty”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Once upon a time upstanding business men entered the front door of the downtown bank and secretly made their way down a tunnel that led to Miss Hattie's place. The bank is gone, but Miss Hattie's Bordello Museum and restaurant live on. There's live music most weekends and the food is fabulous.

“Unique little piece of history”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

You enter & pay in a jewelry store which is a little odd cuz you aren't sure you are in the right place. You look around the store waiting for the tour to start and they hope you buy something; I'm sure you'll hear about the Concho River Pearls. The tour itself is pretty interesting. They claim that a lot of the furniture is original which it looks to be true. There are a lot of stories of different ladies who worked there. It's unkown how true they are but it is fun to hear none the less. I think it is worth a visit.

“Miss Hattie's is worth a visit!”
Reviewed 18 April 2006

We visited Miss Hattie's bordello museum while in San Angelo last weekend, and it was fascinating. It's like time has stood still in this place, located above a jewelry store (formerly above a saloon). Almost all the furniture is original, or so the tour guide told us, and I believe it's true. One prostitute's diploma is even still on the wall of her room! (San Angelo High School, 1919.) Lots of very interesting things there to see. Not sordid at all, but rather sad. No doubt every little town had such a place back in the late 1900s, but most of them have long since been demolished or replaced by some other business. This upstairs bordello is like a time capsule. I recommend you see it! It would be nice if the tour guide could tell visitors more (she had no idea where Miss Hattie was buried, for example) but it's still very much worth the visit.
