Guava Lamp

570 Waugh Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-524-3359

Location Description:

Anchoring a Montrose shopping center near Allen Parkway and Stages Repertory Theater, Guava Lamp is a swanky refuge from the workday and lively den of activity on the weekends. Touted as Houston's premiere video lounge, the bar invites customers to cozy up to the ample couch or booth seating as the screens flicker videos from Madonna, Whitney Houston and numerous other beloved divas. The glowing bar packed with top-shelf liquor offers daily specials, including $4 Jager Blasters on Sundays, explaining the wall of empty green bottles the bar sports like a badge. Guava Lamp hosts periodic live music and is known for its packed Karaoke Wednesdays.
