"Bandista, in short, is truly an experience. From beginning to end, my wife and I were catered to and educated. A special shout out goes to Jenn and Sean for their hospitality! We enjoyed not only the cocktails but the conversation that we shared with them. 10/10 would recommend if you enjoy QUALITY cocktails and service."

"My FAVORITE NEW SPOT! The drinks are ON POINT! The VIBE IS GREAT! Good music, cool atmosphere, and the guy behind the counter is HILARIOUS! I love the games and art work! Be sure to sign the board when you stop by! 🎉🍾💃🏽👯‍♀️🤪"

"Just moved into the neighborhood and this looked like a cool spot so decided to give it a try. When arriving I was instantly pleased by the outdoor decor and the amount of liquor stacked behind the bar. Lighting, music and atmosphere is very chill and well l set. I asked the waiter to surprise me and gave her my preferences. I ended up getting the "weekend lover". It's like a Moscow mule with dark rum and blackberry. Also ordered the Charcuterie Board, highly recommend if your have a group of people to share with."

"Bar manager Matt made these beauties for us. Very friendly, upscale bar with plenty to offer. Will be returning soon. Definitely a place to "trust your bartender" location. They treat you right here! Thank you Italian Job!"


"One of Houston’s hidden gems. Live jazz band every weekend, speakeasy vibes and the greatest bartenders/owners I’ve ever met. I’ve been coming here since 2018 and both Peter and Cody have perfected their craft in concocting cocktails. Their attention to detail is astounding when it comes to each client’s taste preferences. I’ve always been overly pleased each time I’ve visited and highly recommend anyone who lives in Houston or passing by to give this place a try ! Don’t forget to make a reservation beforehand! They have weekend walk in hours from 5:00-7:45 PM and 12-2 AM!"

"Everything here is a vibe! From the inside out! The food was so damn good as well! big portions & good size drinks. The white truffle fries were my fav! Next time i'll try their amazing pizza that i hear is so good! Their pan cobbler was also a mouthful of flavor! the asparagus was ok...i felt it needed a touch of lemon. the service was a bit slow but other than that 10/10!!"

"This is such a cute neighborhood bar with a dive feel. However, the cocktails are amazing! Handcrafted and next level for sure. The bubble gum martini is so yummy!!! It sounds kinda sugary gross but was so light and refreshing! The service is also great! It has a great vibe and is excellent for people watching. The parking lot is a bit small but there is street parking available close by! Can’t wait to return!"

"Great bar and great staff. Corey the bartender was very attentive and very friendly. The atmosphere was very welcoming and laid back. Such a great spot to enjoy a nice beer or cocktail any given evening."

"*** Savvy Little Spot with Great Food, Art, Drinks, and Shops *** Axelrad Beer Garden was a nice little treat when visiting Houston from south Florida. The staff here is friendly and the different food and shops are awesome. This place is like a marketplace where people set up their stations and sell their goods and services. They've got all different kinds of spots in here. Food, clothing, jewelry, art, plants, books, and plenty of other goods. Two of my favorite places here were Herban Frequency Vegan Burgers. These burgers will make you slap your momma. Like seriously that good! The other spot is called Colors of life Plant Co. They have beautiful plants and greenery that are reasonably priced. They happen to be very nice guys as well. Give Axelrad Beer Garden a try if you're in town. It's well worth it. Highly recommend. 5 - stars!"


"My husband and I had a fabulous time enjoying our New Year’s Eve dinner at Eddie V’s. The food was absolutely delicious and our server, Todd Parker, was OUTSTANDING!!! His knowledge of the menu, his attentiveness to us, our needs and to details, and his overall professionalism was beyond 5 Star service!!! My husband is not the easiest person to please or impress, but Todd changed all that! He sang Mr. Parker‘s praises the entire night! We will definitely go back to this particular location because of the food, atmosphere, location and TODD PARKER!!"

"We came in for an early Valentine’s Day celebration. Our server, Mr. Hunter, did an amazing job and helped make our night a special one! There was a minor issue with valet parking, they couldn’t accommodate “our car” (had to park across, paid parking garage, top floor and walk back to Eddie AB’s). We never had that issue at the West Ave. Eddie V’s location and it was our first time visiting this location. That was a poor first impression… but Mr. Will, the manager, sprung into action and addressed all of our concerns. His attention to customer satisfaction won our hearts back!!! He personally added roses to our table upon my request. Hunter went above and beyond. He understood my husband’s sense of humor and went with the flow of things. He made great recommendations from start to finish. The calamari appetizer was delicious. My husband had the chef’s special for the night. And I had the scrumptious scallops, two jumbo shrimps, and a side of crab fried rice! Many thanks to Hunter, Will, and Eddie V’s for an exceptional early Valentine’s Day dining experience!!!"

"Hole in wall bar that’s friendly cozy & inviting. Fills up quick & you could be outside waiting next to the little Hawaii wall before you try one of their great drinks. Cheers"

"Their food and their drinks are always delicious, and the atmosphere is always great. Been going here on and off for 5 or so years and it still is extra special. The staff is amazing, and super tentative to the patrons. I will always recommend this place if you're looking for good food and amazing drinks!"

"The perfect space to social or study while admiring plants! Love this place for plants , coffee and chill vibes. This place does get packed but great if you want to arrive early to get a study table otherwise the one person seating is accessible"


"I'm not exaggerating when I say Tongue-Cut Sparrow is likely the best bar in all of Houston. Every menu they put out is full of delicious, varied options that would please your palate. Additionally, their ambiance is pristine, and the care they put into the establishment shows. Lastly, service is always great, and the staff is as good as it gets. Lastly, once you're done here, hop over to Anvil to contiue with your night in a different, yet still enjoyable vibe."

"Cool little neighborhood joint. Eclectic clientele and trendy craft cocktails. A great after-meal cocktail spot, or fun intimate date night."

"Really cool place with unique vibe and great patio. Lots of themed items and cocktails for certain nights or times of the year. This is great fun place to get food and or drinks. Look forward to stopping by here to continue to try more of the menu. So far food and cocktails have always been well executed."

"Probably my new favorite restaurant in Midtown. I've tried a lot of burgers in midtown at more expensive, more popular diners. This is definitely the best. Near perfect burger and seasoned hand-cut fries. And at a competitive price. Cool staff. Laid back environment. Not pretentious."

"Great meal in a bright airy setting with excellent service! My wife and I came today and enjoyed everything we had. The menus is very creative and the drinks are spins on classic drinks that were all very good. My wife who does not drink Gin even really enjoyed a drink with it in there. The sea food was all fresh and it was cooked to perfection. Next time we will try that steak! Did not get dessert but it looked great. Ben was a fabulous server. Very professional and good at his job. Great recommendations the whole meal."
