This new Heights-area bar on a quiet street, easily accessible from I-10, is somewhat of a hidden gem; it is definitely a neighborhood bar, and has been attracting young adults who have bought new condos that are springing up in the area as well as longtime residents. Down the Street looks like a friendly, rustic Texas icehouse, with a seating area out front and dirt-covered parking lot, but serves liquor and has a full bar to go along with their impressive collection of wines and beers, many of which come from Texas breweries. The owners are foodies at heart, and as far as we know this is the only place in town to get a pizza like the Larkin, which is topped with smoked duck breast, cherry glaze, fresh pears, crumbled blue cheese and pesto; the rest of the menu is equally impressive. Come check out some of the popular weekly specials, like Moscow Mule Night Thursdays and College Game Burger Day Saturdays.
