Your Friendly Neighbourhood Bar

Before returning to Houston in 2002, I lived in London, where all the locals extol the virtue of the English pub.

    it’s unfortunate that he marred his “local” reputation when he first built the place. He originally billed it to all of us (the neighbors) that it was to be a morning coffee joint. It wasn’t until it was all built and running that we saw the license for selling alcohol. Needless to say it went through against objections of the blocks around. The reason was because the Heights historical district that Onion Creek borders (by literally a few dozen yards) is a dry (no alcohol region). So it is now heavily visited, but the parking raised hell because customers were parking outside of their parking lot and in our yards. I hope Gary has resolved this with the purchase of the property at White Oak and Oxford, otherwise I will still not step foot in the place of someone who so deceptively markets themselves and ignores the common courtesy to neighbors…
