Velvet Melvin Pub

Map & Directions 3303 Richmond
Houston, TX 77098
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining


Houston Press' Description

If ever there were a spacious, comfortable Upper Kirby sports bar with a plethora of televisions, Velvet Melvin is it. With an iconic circular sign and expansive patio fronting Richmond Avenue, this watering hole is hard to miss. The brave and brash might want to try tackling the Melvin's "Drink the Tank" challenge: A 64-ounce fishbowl full of various liquors. (Don't say you weren't warned, though.) Weekly drink specials, Monday-night trivia, an all-day Sunday happy hour and a cluster of Golden Tee machines keep patrons coming back. Or perhaps it's the bar's array of beers and hefty food menu - including the Melvin Melt, "guaranteed to cure a hangover."

    HAHA - I thought this place was a gay bar for the longest time. It was right by my house when I moved here. It's actually a really fun dive bar. Great patio!

    This "pub" is OK now but I loved it when it used to be the Velvet Elvis. What exactly is a Velvet Melvin anyway?
