Houston Press' Description

The periodic table painted on the wall should tip you off that this is a haven for grad students, of both the perpetual and temporary varieties. Eggheads hunker down here in this dungeonlike basement pub beneath the old chemistry building at Rice, and what keeps them coming back is perhaps the cheapest beer in town. (Volunteer bar staff help keep prices low.) Then there's the conversation: You can scour the country far and wide, but you would be hard-pressed to find a bar with a brainier clientele. And don't let the warlike name fool you since geeks are more likely to find paradise here than any deceased Viking warrior. The booze sticks to wine and beer only here, meaning you have venture into the real world for the hard stuff.

    Classic college dive bar, ranked as a top 20 college bar in the US. $1.85 local craft beer on tap. Located in the bowels of an academic building. What more do you want?

    The bathrooms have the best graffiti

    Just so you know, Valhalla is closed on Saturdays and it doesn’t serve liquor.
