This north Houston live-music venue has been around since 1982, the last three years of which have brought back the rock after a short stint as a karaoke bar. Food is served seven days a week, with Thursday designated as steak night; a Pot Luck Barbecue goes down on the patio Sundays at noon. Jack and Coke and bottled Budweiser are the drinks of choice here, though the owner says flavored vodkas and martinis have been added for the ladies. A few craft beers are on tap as well, but music is the main draw here.
Hard rock and metal acts play live Wednesdays through Saturdays and most Sundays, taking advantage of Acadia's impressive light show and sound system. If music is not your thing, stop by Thursday nights for the foosball tournaments or Mondays for the pool league. The owner says Acadia always has a laid-back atmosphere and friendly customer service, crediting this to his 16 years experience working at House of Blues. Smoking is allowed inside, due to one of those Harris County districting plans we don’t quite understand.
