Dan Electro's Guitar Bar

Map & Directions 1031 E. 24th
Houston, TX 77009
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining


Houston Press' Description

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 decided to wait for them to open and eat there. After 1 1/2 hrs later we were allowed... More >>

    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... More >>

    Total cover charge goes to the band, so $10.00 is more than fair most nights...

    2nd Sunday of the month show with recurring Moe Hansum Band is GREAT!

    Very dive bar like! Best parking is on a side street, then walk to the bar. It's got a great vibe, a cool crew, great stage. Sometimes there is a cover charge - $10, call to see who's playing.
