Spring isn’t really a season in Houston – it just a brief transition. Nevertheless, we are living it up while we can. Below is our current house cocktail menu. I’m very proud of our staff, and I think this is definitely the best menu we’ve put out to date. We kept a couple we couldn’t part with from the last menu, and of course, we will never pull our house cocktail, The Brave, but everything else is new. I’ve got a tendency to only post on this blog when I have a ridiculous amount of information to discuss about a single topic. I don’t know why I don’t just casually post like this anymore. We might just have to fix that – especially if our bartender Alex insists on taking awesome photos of the whole new cocktail menu like the one above. Thanks for the help Alex – you rock! You can view our full menu, including our current featured classics list (there’s a Phil Ward drink on there) at our website here.

    Great Job Guys! I have tried about half of these and it will be tough to make it to the other half as I keep going back for seconds and thirds. The photos are fantastic and will make anyone salivate over these cocktails just by looking at them.

  4. We’ll be there in less than a week — hooray!

    Again, a well thought out menu, concise, seasonal, categorized, and Thank God, not fifteen pages of molecular fantasies.
    And this FINE menus structure makes the consumer want to read same, and order a cocktail, again, again and again.
    Thank you, gentlemen.
