Houston Press' Description

A sign behind the bar commands patrons to "Drink Like An Adult," just above a list of their selection of American-bred whiskeys. In a neighborhood full of younger bars catering to trendier crowds, Poison Girl stands out for its maturity. It's the bar for when you grow out of dance nights and just want to drink something strong to unwind from working for the Man. Before the smoking ban passed, this place was a Marlboro-sponsored sauna. But PG expanded its back patio to accommodate the smokers and give the less-heartier lungs a break. On weekends, it is hard to find a place to sit, inside or on the patio. So come early to stake out a spot at one of the chalkboard tables, complete with a stick of chalk to do your filthy doodles. The row of pinball machines on the back wall is sure to pique your interest by beer three. We highly recommend the Family Guy game.

    Take your picture with the Kool-Aid man in the backyard. No one will believe you otherwise.

    It's been a couple months since I've been here. Must visit soon!

    My favorite bar.

    It’s worth it to come here for the pinball. Granted, it’s harder to be a wizard after a few Poison Girl shots, but it’s not rocket science. Had enough shots? Go for The Jones: ginger beer and bourbon.

    Don't be rude at the bar, there are plenty of customers, they are not afraid to serve you last.
