“A great bar right in The Woodlands”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

No need to go to downtown Houston--thjis place has neat cocktails and good nibbles. Also does great catering. Easy access to parking. Right across the street from the big theater.

“Amazing bar and night spot ***live music***”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Until now this place has not received the review it deserves. What a wonderful grown up place to spend an evening with friends or the one you love. I'm often there with both. The live music is fantastic each weekend, outstanding muscians; I cannot say enough about the talent. My favorites are Kamil and Tony Mann w/Andre. Listen to the music or get up and dance, it's not a club but the environment is so informal you feel like you're hanging with groups of friends. The owners are amazing and get to know you by your first names and the staff are always pleasant. I'm not a drinker but I'm always persuaded by their Bellini. If Kamil and Tony are singing....make reservations. I made reservations and still had to wait because a couple refused to leave once the music started. So if you're in the mood for good food, great drinks and outstanding live entertainment with pleasant staff .... this is the place for you. Try it you won't regret it.
