New bar from the former manager(?) that brought us Old Monk and Idle Rich. The guy knows how to run a bar. I went there in its second week and though it is slightly off the beaten and worn path that is Henderson, it already had a following, and that without advertisement, purely word of mouth. The best thing overlooking the beer would be the wrap around patio, which was nice and packed on this 70 something degree November Saturday.

The brews were fairly standard and what you'd expect from a Dallas (Texas even) beer bar. I don't remember the local brews being super represented but the Belgian selection was on par.
The staff still learning the ropes seemed to be in good spirits and easy to talk too. The staff was touting the food but I had eaten previous to entering. If its anything like the other places, i suspect it is above your standard pub fare.

The crowd was your typical SMU college kids and seemed to pour in more and more as the night went on. One major perk that Capitol has over the other Henderson/Greenville pubs is the parking! Plentiful, at least for the time being. There is a new mini-mall that is across the street which seemed like everyone was parking at. Now it just holds to see if when that opens if they will ban bar seekers from parking there. None the less, I predict this will be a pretty busy place in the years to come.
