Houston Press' Description

Absinthe overflows with lush libations in an unmarked lower Montrose building that looks like an office warehouse. Ideal for date night or a low-key nightcap, the low-lit lounge offers a variety of martinis, beer and wine to accompany signature "Green Fairy" cocktails such as the Hallucinating Melon, Inferno or Hemingway's Revenge. The bar seating is supplemented by some couches up front and tables in the back room.

    Seriously the only bar you can go to by yourself and meet cool people that you can genuinely strike up an intelligent conversation every visit. :-)

    If your nice Alex will let you do a shot out of his belly button for $2

    I was getting ready to leave and saw the pizza so I decided to get one. Don't leave without eating the pizza. Oh and Alex will do the belly button shots for boys or girls.

    Diggin' the vibes at this place. Chill and relaxed, a bit sophisticated. Obviously, the absinthe drinks are fantastic. But the Texas mojito is a must.

    Raise your City iQ: The beverages are good but they have pizza too.
