Upper Kirby/Greenway Plaza

Laidback and casual, this dark-paneled tavern draws college students, office workers and other easy-going locals.

Dish your work woes and gossip over the popular pizzas made in house. It's Big Ass Beer Night each Wednesday. A 24-ounce beer is $1.75.
Live music keeps the place rocking, though the dance floor is small. The place fills on Thursdays when the Trey Clark Band jams.

The patio is the best spot, but inside there are soft sofas and plenty of bar stools. Take in a game of pool, or check out the variety video of games along the back wall. For golf arcade fans, Golden Tee 2004 was recently installed.
