Catbirds

Located just a few blocks past the Montrose and Westheimer intersection, the jazzy Catbirds is a quiet bastion of old-school cool in the neighborhood. It has a unique vibe that can't quite be pinned down. It's ridiculously bright inside, the better to see all your nightly conquests we suppose. The drinks are never mild, the beer is always cold and there are always shenanigans going down on the small wood patio. Some nights bar staff can be seen tending to a barbecue pit on the front sidewalk, for those not down with the fast-food offerings surrounding the bar. Most nights all of your boutique beers and liquors are on special, and the Jagermeister flows like water.
