Experience colorful art, a huge dog-friendly outdoor patio, a wide selection of drinks, and the best of Houston’s food trucks at East End Backyard. Owner, Houston Dynamo legend Brian Ching wanted to create a laid-back outdoor space with enough room for people and their dogs to safely socialize with friends.
With a footprint that covers almost an entire block, East End Backyard features a 16,000 square foot patio with a 3,500 square foot dog park. Plenty of space for lawn games, live music and lounging in brightly colored outdoor furniture that includes couches, Adirondack chairs, wood picnic tables with umbrellas.
Lots of options to wet your whistle with 25 beers and ciders on tap, along with a full cocktail menu and guests can grab a bite from a rotating lineup of food trucks.
East End Backyard also offers a unique indoor space in a converted 1930’s bungalow with high-top bar tables made from recycled antique bicycles and reclaimed barnwood. Ching has plans for two other 1930’s bungalows located on the property. One will become a taco or coffee shop, the other, a merchandise shop for local mother-son artists Donkeeboy and Donkeemom. The duo is currently working on a signature mural for the patio.
