Bar Type(s)

Houston’s hottest club might be a board game bar on Telephone Road where customers routinely pay a $30 cover to compete in Friday-night Magic: The Gathering tournaments over pints of Eureka Heights Mini-Boss and the joint’s own best-selling Nitro Thai Tea. Indeed, the spot has quickly become the standout in Houston’s burgeoning geek-hospitality sector, with an impressive selection of indie and mainstream titles, as well as a decked-out studio ready for podcasting and Twitch livestreams. The ample selection of games, like Bananagrams and Monopoly, suggests gaming novices are welcome, too.
