Nettbar, located across the train tracks at 4504 Nett Street, is situated in a former household built in 1917. With a spacious lawn populated by picnic tables and bocci ball courts, it now serves to host herds of Houstonians seeking cold drinks, a round of ping pong, and nature-loving yogis.
Every month or so, the bar opens up for an entirely new breed of customers: goats. Like meditation, yoga is a practice of centeredness and concentration. It’s a discipline of balance in the face of stress and adversity — that which may be difficult to do when resisting the urge to snuggle one of the herd of baby goats bouncing around.
The next Goat Yoga session is planned for Saturday, July 17, wherein goats and guests alike are welcome baaaack bends in the crisp open, slightly humid, Houston air. The all-ages event runs for an hour and 15 minutes, with tickets starting at $35. Practitioners can bring their own mats, although mats will be available for rent for an additional $5.
In addition to Goat Yoga, Nettbar offers a variety of other games including darts, corn hole, giant Jenga, Or, guests can opt to grab some shade at one of the tables where you can indulge on some of the bar’s summery libations. Nettbar serves every beer under the Texas sun, a variety of frozen drinks, and $2 train shots taken when the time is right. Nettbar also hosts a variety of rotating food trucks as well as steak nights on Tuesdays and tacos and burgers on Thursdays.
Dogs and kids are also welcome, although the latter have to skidaddle by 9 pm.
