4200 San Felipe
Houston, TX 77027
After River Oaks beloved Roll’n Saloon shut its doors in early 2010, loyal locals were left wondering what would become of their neighborhood haunt. Four and a half months later, they had their answer when the former dive bar reopened under new management and a new name—The Railyard.
In its brief hiatus, the bar was updated, upgraded and resurrected as a polished, industrial chic space that more accurately reflects the well-heeled River Oaks clientele that often frequent the spot. Located in the back corner of a San Felipe-set strip center, just across from the train tracks, The Railyard has traded in its canned-beer-and-pool-table-atmosphere for a wine list, flat screen TVs and an assortment of draft beer. Management promises a stellar cocktail menu in the near future, too.
The Railyard is open Tuesday through Saturday nights until 2AM.
