Location Description:

Tucked away behind a House of Pies on Westheimer just outside Loop 610, this inconspicuous piano bar is a true hidden gem. The doors underneath Caps' plain-looking sign open to reveal a cozy old-time lounge frequented by longtime regulars who cluster around the square bar. Every Tuesday through Saturday night, the three stalwart gentlemen of house band Tighten Up do take requests, but mainly just lay out classic tune after classic tune while patrons drink along or perhaps hop onto the small dance floor. Mondays change the formula a bit as bar-goers come onstage to perform karaoke-style in front of the Last Minute Band. Caps doesn't charge cover as long as you're willing to buy a beverage, but with a soulful cast of characters and over 20 years of history, it's easy to stick around and soak in the charm.
