Houston, TX 77055
Houston Press' Description
The first thing that stands out about Blue Lagoon is the sign above the bar that reads, "No pissy attitudes." The bar takes this seriously, but prides itself on a friendly atmosphere where the bartenders (especially Jack) will learn your name - and use it - before you leave for the first time. It's been under the same ownership for three decades, and the waitstaff isn't afraid to turn away customers who've had one too many. The back wall is covered with pictures of regulars carousing around the bar and the ceiling-fan-cooled back patio. Busy during the early evenings, Blue Lagoon gets quieter the later it's open, matching the low-key but wide-ranging selection of music on the juke box.
