Best Jukebox (2004)
The Next Door The jukebox at Rudyard's -- next door to the Next Door, as it were -- is no slouch, with its selection of alt-country, cool local tunes, classic jazz and rock and blues, but the one at this art gallery/bar has it beat. Though the art on the walls is often top-notch, the jukebox is the real masterpiece here. Black Sabbath and Portishead, Led Zeppelin and the Cure, De La Soul and Dr. Dre, Prince and Johnny Cash all coexist within the bowels of this wonderfully stocked sound system -- there isn't a duffer in the bunch. It's a shame the transmissions from it aren't broadcast all over town -- it would easily be Houston's best radio station.
