This Sunset Heights mainstay has long been a place to grab a brew and a show. The bar stocks a healthy supply of Texas beers in addition to the standard Bud family of bottles, and the kitchen doles out eats until the clock strikes 1 a.m. Dan Electro's doesn't serve liquor, but bring your own and for a small fee they'll set you up with some fixings. A smattering of old guitars and groovy fluorescent skating-rink stars decorate the walls, and Dan Electro's corner stage has played host to too many local and regional names to count (most often blues, folk, roots-rock and hard rock). The extensive back garden patio holds many a refuge for those looking to relax in the cool of the evening. That is if you can find the place, since it is off the beaten paths of the Heights.

We recently visited the bar and had a very bad experience. We arrived around 7pm because we were told they had a good menue. We were not allowed in because they said were will open when the open sign is on. We ask if they served food and was shown a menue that included steak, chicken salad... We decided to wait for them to open and eat there. After 1 1/2 hrs later we were allowed in . Then we were told they would only serve hamburgers, hotdogs nachos and popcorn. We were disappointed but ordered a couple og burgers. We waited almost an hour and then discovered they had only made one burger. When we inquired about the second burger the man behind the counter told me to get away from the bar and that I only ordered one burger. This guy had a real bad attitude and was very rude. He did give us another burger but after my husband ate it he became very ill nad n/v could not breath and had chills.
Been hanging out at Dan E's since it opened. Normally a great place to hear music and one I always check when planning my weekend. But the new owner, as of 2012, seems to think air conditioning in the Houston summertime is an option rather than a necessity. I left the club recently--WITH my cover charge, because the parking lot was cooler than the club. This has been standard operating procedure for several months now. I'll give it another chance--but only one more.
Seasoned musicians drift into Dan Electro's on Thursdays and jam with whoever happens to be around. Frequently these impromptu groupings kick ass. On a recent night, veterans Andy Williams and Diunna Greenleaf took the stage with three others and unleashed a feverish set of blues. Williams made his guitar moan, while Greenleaf hammed it up diva-style, showcasing her rich, booming voice. Another group included two dudes named Jeremiah -- front man Jeremiah Johnson, fresh in from rural... More »
