McGonigel's Mucky Duck Pub
Houston, TX 77098
The Mucky Duck is one of Houston's premier spots for Texas folk, blues, country, and Celtic music and is rated one of the Top 20 Acoustic Venues in the U.S. Big-time artists such as Ezra Charles, Guy Clark and even Lyle Lovett have performed here, while local acts and other famous folkies are regular entertainers at this popular Irish pub.
The Mucky Duck is comfortable and cozy, and the English and Irish interior decorations serve to enhance the ambience. The bar offers international beers on draught or by the bottle, and a large assortment of wines. Most patrons favor the traditional Irish beers such as Guinness and Harp, but domestic brands and other imports are available. The Duck also offers a full pub menu. Offerings are traditional, including shepherd's pie, fish and chips and burgers.
Monday is open mike night. Stand-up comedians, poets, storytellers, and songwriters are all welcome, and there's never a cover charge.
The Irish jam sessions are on Wednesday nights at 8PM (no cover).
