H-town represents. For good reason: we got the Astros, NASA, Beyoncé. But not since now has anyone repped Houston harder than Eighteen36.
Houston sees millions of tourists each year. They tour the museums, eat Tex-Mex and barbecue, and check out the local scene. There comes a point when any tourist in Houston has to decide: where is the cultural core? What is the most Houston place to go in Houston? The new Eighteen36 bar in Kirby has your answer.

Last week the local-owned Eighteen36 on W. Alabama Street opened its doors to the city for a soft opening. Inside, its 3,500-square-foot interior has a farmhouse look and includes seating, bar, and standing areas. Furthermore, the bar features a series of murals painted by local artists that pay homage to Bayou City’s history.
Outside is a patio complete with overhead awnings and a fireplace. Future plans are to use this area as a stage for live music. Its drink menu includes Houston-inspired cocktails as well as crafts from local breweries.
Eighteen36, named after the year Houston was founded, will also be the home of Greek-American restaurant, Roadster Grill. The grill, whose original location in Bellaire shuttered in 2017, will return a limited menu. One can only hope that the menu will feature its renowned Moussaka.
The full opening will kick-off next week on February 7th with a grand opening party.
