JOINT LIVELY TRENDY

RICHMOND ARMS 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 staff” greet “serious game fans”, who come for the “great beer selection” and pub grub, plus darts and regular trivia nights.

YOU’VE NEVER SEEN TEXAS LIKE THIS

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 off 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 off an ice-cold beer. The flavor of Mexico and the spirit of the South,.

THE KING’S HEAD PUB

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. Serving authentic English food including Scotch eggs, Sausage rolls, and Ploughman’s Platters as well as great pizzas and other pub grub. Beers on draft (pardon, draught) include a mix of locals like Saint Arnolds, Buffalo Bayou and Karbach alongside imported faves like Smithwick’s, Boddingtons, Harp and Newcastle. Happy Hour Mon-Fri 4 - 7.
