Houston Press' Description

Kelvin Arms is dominated by a huge bank vault in the middle of the bar - a holdover from when the Rice Village building was University Bank in the late 1920s and early '30s. Today the old vault resembles an elegantly appointed and softly lit library, albeit one where you can chug shots inside. Outside the huge steel door, Kelvin Arms has an HD projector constantly showing sports, and a shrine to Sean Connery. This one is worth getting off the beaten Rice Village path to venture into.

    Great single malt scotch selection. This convert bank to bar area is never over crowded and they have great specials. Come by on Tuesday or Thursday nights for and awesome steak and potato night!

    A Scottish pub with stiff drinks, swords adorning the walls, and a real bank vault converted into an amazing lounging area. Live decent music can be found here. Mellow and relaxed, its a nice place.

    The bartender Linda is stunningly beautiful. Drinks are strong and atmosphere is friendly, not a hipster haven.

  • Frankie D. on 04/22/12

    Aaron is an excellent bartender. Tip him well!

    Local spot for sure.

    Stop three of four on St Arnold's north village pub crawl.
