Eighteenth Cocktail Bar
Houston, TX 77005
Houston Press' Description
18th Cocktail Bar, named of course for the 18th Amendment, is located on Bissonnet right off of Kirby. The former home to almost half a dozen different bars/clubs/lounges in recent memory has now transformed itself into a trip down memory lane -- you even have to have a password to get in (okay, it's not required, but you may just want to play along with the theme). The space is all dark wood and dimly lit, with antique-style chairs and large leather couches -- one wall is covered in art nouveau antique mirrors and another with faux animal heads. One of the best aspects of the building remains -- the outdoor patio (although how great it is in this heat is debatable).
Tips from foursquare
Andrew Chapa... Nicest bartender around!
Bartenders are on point!! nice ambience with a NYC speakeasy feel & the late night bites were pretty good too.
Not sure about this place. Freezing inside. Thought it would have a more 20's lounge vibe, but there's disco lights and a DJ playing house. What's it like during the week?
Came here on a Friday night. Nice decor. Hated the music.. it was rap and TOO loud. No one was dancing. Not many people. Couldn't have a conversation inside.
