    One of the few and best craft cocktail places in Houston. Just tell the bar tenders what you like and watch them cook something up.

    Scotch eggs are amazing... Wish I brought my own Coleman's mustard. Kimchi is good just not a perfect marriage of flavors.

    Great trendy spot for cocktails with friends! If you're in a big group you're going to have to stake out one of their booths. This place can get pretty packed.
