  1. Well, I finally checked out Rebel's Honky Tonk last night. The place is very clean! Even the restrooms were the cleanest I've ever seen a bar. The music was mostly all country/western with only a brief 30 minutes or so of other music. I like how they didn't do an rotation of country/western and hip hop like at other country bars. That's lame. It had a pretty good girl to guy ratio, slightly more guys than girls, not very many douchebags at all, and some nice looking girls. The place is set up with good flow for moving around the club. Even when it got crowded around midnight, it was mainly just the bar areas that felt really packed. There is a patio outside, ground level, not rooftop. Tip: get your drinks before midnight and brush up on your dance steps.
  2. We already have something like this in the area: The Oil Ranch, which I believe is in Waller or Hempstead. Is it still open? I haven't been since I was in junior high school in the early 90s.
  3. Man, I would hate to be the bouncer at Club Pure! At least The Drinkery keeps it nice and simple.
  4. Well Texas polka is country also, probably more fitting of that genre name than what is played at "country" bars, but I can't complain about the bars themselves. They usually have the best looking girls. I just think they need a little Texas Czech polka, like you'd hear out in the country. That stuff is really fun to dance to if you know how.
  5. I see clothing like this at pretty much all the Washington bars, mainly girls wearing the hats thinking they are trendy for hanging out on Washington. At first I thought it was kind of hip, but now that I realize how popular it is, (i.e. kid's backpacks, bathing suits, being sold at TJ Maxx) I'd probably never buy it. It's too bad that there are not other clothing trends at the bar scene that are deemed respectable. Did The Drinkery really put that on their sign out front, or was it just a joke for their facebook page?
  6. What does that mean, "please no ed hardy"?
  7. I really hope Walters does not close. That place is a dive but it has major cool-factor, and it's a fun place to catch live shows in a great location on Washington. Please no Little Woodrow's; that place has the worst service, and there wouldn't be anything unique about it in this area. BW3's would definitely take some of the hipness away from the avenue. I don't even know why these big chains even try to locate inside the loop. I guess there's a market somewhere. I am surprised at the success of the Chili's near Old Sixth Ward and the Applebees on 18th and 610 North.
  8. This would be nice for the area, but how are "upscale guests" going to find out about this place with all the other nice hotels scattered all around Houston.
  9. Wow, this place looks great! They did such a nice job with the exterior and interior. Good parking will help the area, but it will be valet, so you still have to find a spot somewhere. I'm probably going to try Rebel's this weekend. Anyone have any new information on Reign?
  10. Yeah, I was thinking of something different when I said that. I'm thinking now that I will really like this place. Anyone know if it's going to be live music or dancing, or just a bar to drink at?
  11. You're right, what I said didn't make any sense. I was just really tired when I typed it, but I have since edited it. I was trying to give reason as to why it failed without even knowing what was going on. I just think the place takes itself way to seriously, and it doesn't seem to fit in on Washington Ave. Maybe they'll actually make the place cool, because the building looks really great.
  12. Seems like the owner sold the place. I wonder why the original developers of Reign just abandoned this project.
  13. Don't you have to be a member to go there though? I was thinking they should have that same kind of dancing at regular bars!
  14. That post needs to be removed. I was thinking of something totally different with the name Rebel's Honky Tonk, like some back woods kind of place. If this is just a country-western bar, then I'm all for it. Those places always have attractive women (and some fat ones too!) But we still need a bar on Washington with polka band at least one night a week. That would be fun.
  15. I just wonder whether they'll be able to get customers. People who would go to a place like Rebel's probably don't hang out inside the loop. I think what we need is a bar that has live polka bands at night. As someone with Czech heritage, that would be a lot more fun than another cowboy themed bar.
