This is one of my favorite places to go in The Heights, or anywhere in Houston. The atmosphere can't be beat. It is very laid back. There is a patio outside that faces downtown. A long wood bar inside. I always come on Tuesdays for the Jazz Jam. The best jazz in Houston bar none. That really adds to the charm. The service is great. The bartenders are all enthusiastic and helpfull. Food is really good as well. There are always specials, and a large menu of seafood, sandwiches, entrees, and brunch.

The selection is not the best in Houston, but good. The selection is always rotating. They do have several BMC taps, but the bar manager is always looking for good local beer. They always have a seasonal of Saint Arnolds and Real Ale. Last time I was there they just got Devil's Backbone. SA Winter Stout, and Winter Ale are always available in season. Along with Real Ale Coffee Porter. Every once in a while they will get some Southern Star. The Logger was here when it first came out. They also carry New Belgium Fat Tire, and 1554. The only complaint I have with quality is the beer is served too cold. The bottle list is much less impressive. Almost all BMC macro stuff. They do have Duvel, and the correct tulip. They are now getting some Southern Star Blonde and Pine Belt in cans though.

Overall, not a place to go just for the beer. Though it is very nice to see an above average selection, with emphasis on the local stuff. Come for some Coffee Porter, good food, and great jazz.

EDIT--- 05/25/10

There is a new bar manager here which has changed things a bit. The service is still good, just not as personal as it use to be. The selection has gone way down hill though. Three taps of Saint Arnold, and Real Ale Fireman 4 is all that is left. The rest is BMC and their pseudo craft offerings. Overall, I still have no problem drinking Saint Arnold while listening to some great jazz. Just be warned that some of their more exclusive beers are no more.
