Houston Press' Description

In the midst of all the hip-hop gals strutting their shimmery stuff down the way and businessmen letting loose over a pint or two over at the Flying Saucer lies the ever-freaky Notsuoh. Yes, all you English majors out there, that is in fact Houston spelled backwards. Owner Jim Pirtle's iconic bar and music venue has the lockdown on the strange and transient downtown vibe. Notsuoh is an oasis of insanity in a part of town still undecided on what it wants to be. Most nights you can find a handful of homeless guys out front preaching their gospel next to a group of hipsters smoking American Spirits and sniffing incessantly about their new noise project. It's a side of Houston that maybe the tourism board doesn't want you to see, but it's Houston nonetheless. Rest assured that no two Notsuoh experiences are ever the same.

    This place is a bit of a beatnik hangout when music or poetry are not happening. Love it, from the interjecting eclectic interior to the window displays, especially the clowns. Where do they get all that stuff? Worth a visit for poetry night, music or just to play a gam go chess with a friend,

    notsuoH hosts gigs for some of the best undiscovered local, regional and national bands.

    Yes, the name is Houston spelled backwards. But there’s nothing overly complicated about this place. The later you stay, the harder it is to leave.

    Don't come here. You would hate it.

    Funky crowd but just about the only place to see the funky crowd. Weirdness abounds!
