The Usual - Closed

5519 Allen Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 281-501-1478

Location Description:

The first thing you'll see when approaching The Usual is its outdoor patio, which is as relaxed as the Heights bar's clean, dimly lit interior. Suds connoisseurs may be a bit surprised at the variety of beers on tap, and the price is right, too - especially during The Usual's weekday happy hours (6-10 p.m. Mondays; 4-10 p.m. the rest of the week). Tuesday is steak night with $1 Lone Stars, adventurous customers take the stage on karaoke Thursdays and DJ Joy de la O opens up the "Joy Factory" Saturdays. Occasional live music and pinball, darts and pool in the back room round out The Usual's attractions.
