    Once upon a time Shangri-La was even more magical and complete with its own East Side King food truck in the backyard. Alas, how the times have changed.

    The old-school chemical photo booth will be the best five dollars you've ever spent. Just do it.

    Ton of hipsters lol!!! Everyone was pretty cool. Love the loud music on the jukebox! Me and friends stuck out like a soar thumb. Pool tables, sick patio, and old arcade games!! I'd go back for sure!

    The kickass, always-packed patio here can keep us happily captive all evening. Even if you don’t feel like drinking, it’s worth the trip just for a steamed bun from food trailer East Side King.

    No I will not fall for a bartender. She knew who I was and didn't hesitate to give me a big hug, haven't been here since kickball time, and she have me her's going to be a good year..

    Perhaps it is the giant patio, the ’90s arcade games or the big selection of bottled beers and drinks, or that Shangri-La is one of the first bars you see on East Sixth keeps locals coming back.

    If you're on east 6th you need to stop here. Nicest staff all around and sickest jukebox selection.
    NICK STILES · March 21, 2011

    All but 2 of the arcade games were out of service. The change machine was out of service as well. While I appreciate that it's quieter than the main 6th street line-up, if you're looking for a good ga

    Avoid the hipster door girl. The femme Nazi obviously spends too much time in the tattoo parlor and not enough time studying the valid forms of identification in the State of Texas.

    Sock Hop last Sunday of every month. Who wouldn't want to dance to classic 50's tunes (and some that play homage). Step away from the sweaty hipsters to take a breather outside on the HUGE patio. Read more
