  • Daily 4pm-2am
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
Located only a couple blocks from Minute Maid Park at the corner of Franklin and Hamilton, Eighteen Twenty is a nice spot for a pregame drink minus the roar of most sports bars. Small flat-screen TVs dot the bar, allowing patrons to keep tabs on games while not being the center of attention. This isn't the place for screaming sports nuts, this is more the place for friends to kick back in the black leather chairs and discuss the game in a civil manner. If you're lucky, they'll open the doorway to Joystix Classic Games and Pinball next door and you can practice your Ms. Pac-man skills.
