Houston’s bang-up new bar is groovy, baby.

As the country remains in the midst of a pandemic, it’s not too much of a surprise that Downtown’s new bar, Unicorn Disco, rolled out in a relatively quiet manner. That said, once things return to normality, this bar is going to be a smash.
Posted up next to neon paradise, Electric FeelGood, Unicorn Disco is a retro concept bar that doesn’t half-ass the theme. Vintage memorabilia stacks up to the ceiling adjacent to the bar. Opposite the bar is a play-for-free, two-lane mini bowling alley complete with electronic scoreboards and vinyl-clad lounge seatings.
More of the 70s thrive in the bar’s tasteful vintage furnishings, which don’t exclude a vintage cigarette machine, TV/record player entertainment center, dual slot machines, and a D.A.R.E.-designed matchbox car.
Plus, a little secret for you guys: after you finish using the restroom (and washing your hands) push the red button for a personal dance party.
In typical bar fashion, Unicorn Disco serves a variety of alcoholic beverages with a range of craft beers on tap and draft cocktails, including their specialty BooCockHehe, made with Deep Eddy grapefruit vodka, Scrappy’s firewater tincture, lime juice, ginger beer, and raspberries. The Disco also offers two frozen drinks, including their MMF “the devil’s threesome”, which I’ll let them describe: “It’s like red bull, vodka, and blueberries had a full bush, 3-way love affair and made a delicious who’s the daddy [sic] booze baby.”
For late night eats, the bar also serves an assortment of hamburgers and tacos. Unicorn Disco is open from 11 am – 2 am Friday and Saturday, and 4 pm – 2 am from Sunday to Thursday.
