Bars In Eastwood?


Recommended Posts

My cousin just moved in to the Eastwood area and is looking for a cool chill bar to go to? Can you please let me know where I can find any?

The only I know of is Lucky's.

Thanks.

Bohemeo's does drink setups. They're too close to a school to sell alcohol, unfortunately.

Otherwise, you're pretty limited to dives, like Mak's, which is on McKinney.

All along Harrisburg or Telephone Rd. Bullet proof vest not included. :lol:

But seriously if that person is dying for a drink and company just head to Midtown. At least he/she will have a choice of pretty women, unless prefers that Harrisburg/Telephone kind of gal/thing, etc.

:o As a female Eastwood resident who has been to a bar on Harrisburg......and Lawndale.... I certainly hope you're not referring to moi. ;)

Admittedly, it ain't exactly hard to feel like a beauty queen at the Happy Days Lounge. The bar is, shall we say, low.

Of course not, you dont seem like the trigger happy, gun-slinging, Annie Oakley type.

This breed is commonly seen further down Telephone @ Tel Wink Grill and beyond all the way to Hobby Airport.

Swanky joints like The Blue Cat Club, the Oriental Lounge, et al, appeal to some of our cowboys that pull into town on occasion. The wild, wild Southwest as they call it in these here parts. :P

Like the old saying goes " For every broken beer bottle & curb on Telephone Road, there's a broken heart". Bang, bang, Yeehah!

I could swear that low down dive has been closed for about 5 yrs? I had to grin remembering it was once called The Red Bull Lounge in early 80's. We always said it would be a great idea to build a morgue next door and a funeral home next to that since the death count was so high at that dump. Seemed like every other weekend it was the site of stabbings, shootings, drug busts, etc. I often wished if there were a train derailment we would cross our fingers that the train would roll right on top of that blasted bldg. B)

Couldnt help but notice the other day that chunks of the bldg are missing and has big holes in the walls. There was a former council member that said she would rid the East End of such pathetic derelic hangouts but once she got elected she fled for Austin and just giggled all the way like "see ya later suckers". :):mellow:

I agree, Happy Days has always been known as low end, but I guess the beer is priced right. That place has been there forever, my dad used to go there. I preferred the Kenny Stabler Diamondback Saloon myself, way back when, during the cowboy craze (remember that one?). I like "The Flying Saucer" now.

If you mean the cruddy Destino lets get ready for a party!

Wow what a dump! I passed by the other day and thought of all of these wonderful Haif a mites. The middle of the building has a huge smack where a truck or something crashed into it? I will personally jump in the seat of the bulldozer as it plows that old eyesore down forever. The new school is going up right across the street so lets hope they prevent another dive from popping up.

This whole corridor has so much potential with the new school coming. We can create a new topic like "what would you want to see built near this new school". :D

The blasted Rustins Lounge on Telephone bend finally had its roof collapse! Yeah!

Formally the old much troubled Big Louie's bar for years it finally met its match, Thanks to Ike! The center roof is all messed up and hopefully will be flatened for all eternity. This would be a perfect spot for a grand gas station, I mean perfect. :)

Don't know if anyone ever responded to you. Bohemeo's on Telephone is a grat coffee house/wine/beer/live music venue. Many of the local ice houses (like Mac's on McKinney near Cullen) are very friendly to newcomers to the area.
