Captain Foxheart's Bad News Bar & Spirit Lodge
Cozy saloon with an upstairs patio
Bar · Downtown · $
With a balcony hanging over Main Street, this second-floor hot spot offers an upstairs patio with Downtown views. Vinyl records spin in the intimate, speakeasylike space, where a long wooden bar sets up some serious cocktails. P.S. The entrance lacks obvious signage – just walk up the stairs and go through the door marked with a fox.

Thought this was one of Houston's most unique bars. I would bring friends here often and tell them to try one of the unique cocktails on the menu, especially the old fashion. However, I recently brought a group of friends here for a birthday outing and upon arriving, there was a noticeably belligerent drunk person there who began to get boisterous, speaking loudly/causing a scene. Of course, this drunk person ended coming up to my group of friends and starting a verbal confrontation. However, I had just ordered everyone drinks when I realized what was going on and within the same minute, the employees/bartenders at the bar kicked my friends and I out without even asking what occurred and were pushing us and laying their hands on us in an aggressive manner. We were confused and dismayed by their lack of decency, manners, customer service, etc. In addition, they removed our (barely touched) drinks from our hands and mouths forcibly. I understand asking people to leave a bar in an appropriate manner, but laying your hands on people and getting aggressive/speaking rudely to them is beyond unacceptable behavior. Needless to say, what used to be my favorite bar in downtown and the bar I referred/recommended will no longer be on my list of bars to visit while I'm in downtown. Plus, the customer service has always been lacking since the bartenders tend to think they are holier than thou when serving their customers and put them on the back burner when it comes to tending to their customer's drink orders. The bartenders act like they don't want to be there serving the customers. They don't provide a kind, welcoming environment due to their lack of desire to engage in conversation with their customers and lack of desire to serve them.

Great place to relax and have a really good drink. The old fashioned is one of my favorite drinks here. The balcony has a nice view of down town and the night life walking below. The entrance is a bit tricky and you could walk right past it. There are no signs to let you know your in the right place, only a dark stair well and a fix knocker. If you don't know you just can't go haaa

Cool, hidden upstairs bar with speakeasy feel. Bartenders were very knowledgeable, and suggested excellent unique drinks. Our group had a great time, and we would definitely come back again.
