Cecil's is a Montrose drinking institution, full of a surliness and warmth that only family can give you. The small television nook to the left of the bar, complete with a worn-in couch, is perfect for lazing the night away after a day in the high-rise salt mines down the street. It's easy to hide inside a darkened booth if that's your bag, or you can hold court out on the deck. To soundtrack your pool-sharking or dart-throwing ways, the jukebox oozes with old punk rock and other required Houston roots selections. For the thrifty drinker, Monday nights feature cheap wells and draw a huge, smoky crowd, and grilled foods to the front deck.
