McIntyre’s Spirits & Friends is a Greater Heights watering hole for beer lovers, sports fans (there are 40 TVs), and lovers of the food truck (different trucks for different days). The wall of 24 taps is devoted to Texas-essential brews, and is backed by a collection of bottles and cans. If barley isn’t your thing, there are wines on offer, as well as classic cocktails and signatures, like The One Time At Band Camp -- tequila, blood orange, blackberries, lime juice, agave, and Champagne. The back patio sports standard picnic table seating, benches, and high top tables. And a swing set, because really, what better way is there to drink beer than on a swing?
Ever want to watch your favorite sports team absolutely dominate from the comfort of your very own swing? Well you’re in luck, because you can at the Shady Acres location of this cool kids’ patio bar that boasts covered and open-air seating, plus booths inside in case Houston weather decides not to cooperate. Rotating food trucks that carry your bar tab, a 50-beer selection, sangria, and a house vodka-cider-lemonade on tap, along with 49 TVs. So, you can win your day just as hard as your team did. And if you’re downtown, McIntyre's three-level sports hub also has swing seats, making it an equally worthy game-watching spot for dining and quenching while you scream at the screen.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
Fun fact: You can watch Super Bowl LVII from the comfort of your very own swing at the Shady Acres location of this cool kids’ patio bar, which also boasts 49 TVs, covered and open-air seating, pub games, and booths inside just in case the Houston weather decides not to cooperate (the brand’s three-level downtown hub is an equally worthy game-watching spot). Beers and draft cocktails will keep your thirst quenched while you scream at the screen, and your bar tab transfers easily to the resident El Guajillo Grill food truck, so you have one less chance to forget your debit card.
