There was a time when all the drinkers in town were leaving Midtown for the well-dressed expanse of Washington Avenue, but this new addition to the Drinkery family (there's also one on Washington) proves that Midtown needed a little color in its nightlife. Housed in the old Cheerz Shot Bar locale, the Midtown Drinkery doesn't deviate from the mold of its Washington elder, but there's also action going on upstairs on the second story inherited from the old tenants. The Washington crowd is slowly trickling back to Midtown for the Thursday-through-Sunday exploits, and this tavern off Bagby is welcoming one and all with open arms. Nights can be very loud and packed, so be sure to stake your spot at a table or on the patio on the weekends. Make an evening of it by hitting up Houston's newest Tex-Mex darling, El Xuco Xicana, located just around the corner.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe I am reading the following on the Houston Press about The Drinkery in Midtown: "This tavern off Bagby is welcoming one and all with open arms." YEAH RIGHT!!!! IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE that we still have to deal with Supremacists... specifically in the 4th largest city (Houston). As I agree w/everyone else's reviews and negativity towards a place like "THE DRINKERY" in midtown. Mike the Manager is the worst of the worst Bigots. Yes, he discriminates and is supported of his bigotry by owner Wade. He discriminates against gays and people of color. What I witnessed one night was horrifically disgusting and made me sick to my stomach. I agree with the other reviews...he picks on anyone other than caucasian's, of their clothing in order to make an excuse of their allowance into the freakin place. Mike how can you sleep at night knowing of being such a disgusting person when our world is so full of hatred and malice???????? Mike and Wade can be considered as bad, malicious and hateful individuals on this earth.
