Mongoose Versus Cobra

Map & Directions 1011 McGowen St.
Houston, TX 77002

Houston Press' Description

Midtown has no shortage of bars. But it does have a shortage of bars that are serious about their product — craft beer in this case — while playful and casual at the same time. You don't have to dress up to enjoy a Friday night here. You don't even have to enjoy beer, as the classic cocktail menu is equally solid. But beers are still the advised poison of choice, with a rotating list of more than 40 draft brews that range from quirky local experiments like Buffalo Bayou casks to an array of terrific Belgians. The wood-and-metal-laden interior is cool and loft-like, with a Brooklyn vibe that belies its Bayou City roots.

    This Midtown spot may have taken a while to find its footing, but the stylish room's mix of craft beer and cocktails has settled in nicely. The large, free, adjacent parking lot is a nice touch.

    There is plenty of parking space. The bar is open and has high ceilings. You can hear nice music while still be able to carry a conversation. Must check out if you are in midtown.

    Try a sour ale! The Jacobins Rouge will make you pucker up. So good.
