Char Bar

Map & Directions 305 Travis
Houston, TX 77002
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining


Houston Press' Description

With its marriage of two disparate services, Char Bar is quite possibly downtown's most peculiar drinkery. What used to be, and in fact still is, a tailor shop opened by Duke Shapiro has been beautifully remade into a Market Square watering hole. A shoeshine booth sits to the left as you enter, followed by a behemoth working counter. The cabinets in the walls are still full of fabric and dress shirts, which, along with the various photos and newspaper clippings plastered around the place, help with the nostalgic feel. Be sure to partake in the bar's frozen vodka or tequila concoctions, which are stronger than they look.

    Truffle Mac n cheese. 'Nuff said.

    Don't even think about it: get The Byrd burger, it comes with bacon, jalapeƱo, fried egg an avocado and served with mac & 4 cheese! Enough said!

  • Peggy O. on 05/25/13

    Bacon and chive deviled eggs were excellent

  • Oliver G. on 03/25/12

    Fish tacos are "available gluten free" which stands for "we leave off the habanero sauce and charge you $4 extra". They don't tell you that when you order.

    Rush hour can wait.
