neil’s bahr houston, tx

Before my friends and I went to The Faint show earlier this month, my friend [and teammate] Grrl Friday suggested we meet at a bar about a block away. She said Daniel would totally love it…because of all of the geekery! The bartenders were really nice and there’s a variety of drink options, the atmosphere was very chill, and there was all kinds of entertainment: old school video games, comics, and board games. I could totally see myself working on my laptop as Daniel grades papers [or plays Magic…].
On our way to Neil’s Bahr [the first time], I looked up their Facebook page and said, “Uh oh…Daniel…they have Magic tournaments!” hahaha He was hooked before we arrived. My very hip husband is also a little nerdy, which is a perfect fit for me, right? 🙂

So technically this second time around at Neil’s Bahr, I crashed what was supposed to be a “boys night.” While they played Fluxx, I meandered around, creeping everyone out with my camera. My friend [and also teammate!], Smack, joined me, too. We did get a game of Cards Against Humanity going later. 🙂

I’m pretty excited to have been introduced to Neil’s Bahr. Can’t wait to chill here in the summer months.
By the way, the photo below fully illustrated me creeping on bar customers…very obviously….haha!
If you are in the Houston area, be sure to stop by Neil’s Bahr. Very cool place. 🙂



  1. That place looks totally fun! We hardly ever go to Houston, but I will have to remember this if we drive through this summer.

  2. Just found your blog, can we be besties? Dogs are my favorite and I dream of trying Derby! (not to mention, you've got some rad recipes up in here!)

  3. Never been here before, but I definitely know I want to go there. Discovery Green always has such cool events taking place but I never explore the places around there. Cactus Music is always talking about Vinyl night at the MKT Bar? I've been wanting to go to that as well. Houston is so great.
