    Cool, divey atmosphere and great outdoor seating. I hope the new apts going up nearby don't ruin this spot.

    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 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 number...it'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.

    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.
