YOU’VE NEVER SEEN TEXAS LIKE THIS
THE KING’S HEAD PUB
Richmond Arms is a lively, oldfashioned pub, complete with seasonal brews, too many beers on tap to count and a bevy of Celtic accents ringing throughout the establishment. Even during the week, an evening here feels like an Irish beer advertisement, “Lots of British nationals” feel at home in this “authentic” Briargrove area pub that some claim is the closest thing to England “this side of the big pond”; “wood beams and red accents” and a “friendly sta” greet “serious game fans”, who come for the “great beer selection” and pub grub, plus darts and regular trivia nights.
Bona fide dance hall, backyard, kitchen and community space, the Armadillo Palace is a one-ofa-kind tribute to all things Texas — and to the city that’s been so good to us for generations. When you think southern comfort, you’re thinking of authentic Mexican, true Houston BBQ and seafood from the waters of the Gulf. With meat hot o the wood cooker and brews fresh from the tap, you’ll want to stay not only for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner. Find your dancin’ boots and pop the top o an ice-cold beer. The flavor of Mexico and the spirit of the South,.
The King’s Head Pub hails back to royal Britannia with a classic wood features, a large stone fireplace, a portrait of King Henry VIII. The pub features a full outdoor patio area, and over 5000 square feet of seating area with plenty of parking space.
