Leon’s Lounge Houston

Great stop for a drink with atmosphere, across the street from Mongoose versus Cobra. Everyone here had a pint in hand and a smile on their face.

Mongoose versus Cobra – Houston, TX

by on Sep.02, 2012, under Cocktails, Happening, Houston, Texas, United States

Stopped here for a cocktail after dinner,  the drinks were excellent, best we’ve had all weekend and the name of this place alone should spark your interest to stop in ‘Mongoose versus Cobra‘ will not disappoint.


The front has large windows that open to outdoor seating in the front. They have a great bar space to the right and seating through to the back of the bar. A very funky space with a great staff!


Andy was our bartender and filled us in on the stuffed baboon above the bar (previously occupied an investors basement) he mixed a great flight of shots despite being a QPR supporter.


I highly recommend the ‘Roy Orbison’ a cocktail made with Angostura Bitters plus a few other magical ingredients, it was phenomenal (I had two)


I highly recommend stopping at Mongoose versus Cobra in Houston for a drink, they are fantastic and memorable.

Prohibition Houston

by on Sep.01, 2012, under Beer, Cocktails, Happening, Houston, Novelty, Parking/Valet, Salmon, Steak, Texas, United States, Wine

New Address 1008 Prairie Street | Houston, TX 77002
Prohibition Website

Stopped by this place when it was next to the Galleria in hopes of getting into the sold out burlesque show via the waitlist. We were able to sneak a peak at the show (even though we didn’t make the waitlist)









This is a happening old time speakeasy style bar and restaurant. The bartenders have a dress code that identifies their skill levels: vest = first level, suspenders the next level, all black with suspenders = mixologist.


I started with a ‘Southern Lady’

It was a little to strong for my taste, moving on to some wine from their fun selection which also features the beloved Chimay!


We started with the Caprese Salad and the Wasabi Calamari



Finished with the Truffle Mac and Cheese (which left something to be desired)

















Surf & Turf (mostly turf with extra seasoning)









King Crab Role without the roll! (Best Crab I’ve ever had!!!!!)














Next time I’m in Houston I wouldn’t think twice to come back, we had a great time and were surrounded with a fabulous energy (reminded me of one of the SupersShag pole showcases a few years back great taste and good friends) I recommend you book a reservation at Prohibition or just show up at the bar and see what you can get!
