Description

It’s a high-octane, tropical paradise, a mid-century Palm Springs oasis dropped onto a bustling stretch of Westheimer. In its former life it was Royal Oak—a dark, whiskey-centric cave of a bar that couldn’t be more different from the punch-drunk, super-saturated successor that owner Shawn Bermudez debuted in the summer of last year. What resulted—a multi-level patio bar (nearly double the size of Royal Oak) positively bursting with neon colors, lush decor, and vintage kitsch—is particularly emblematic of today’s nightlife scene, where, aside from stiff drinks, customers are searching for two things: nostalgia and photo-ops.
