Pimlico may be one of the most authentic Irish bars in Houston. In fact, the owner himself is from Dublin, where his father owned a bar of the same moniker in the '60s through the '70s; it took its name from the street it was located on, just a few blocks from the Guinness beer brewery. Old bookkeeping invoices and voided checks from that bar are on display here, as well as handfuls of other authentic items from Ireland. The owner boasts that he serves the best pint of Guinness in town, and who are we to argue? Paying tribute to the world-renowned Irish beer, a fence outside has been branded with the famous Guinness logo, and Guinness posters and memorabilia adorn the walls and shelves. Other beers from Ireland and the world are also available on tap, and in bottles and cans. Besides the full bar, a line of the finest Irish Whiskeys is also available; a shot of Midleton goes for $34. You can also get some authentic Irish bar snacks like Smiths scampi fries and Tayto cheese & onion potato chips, among others, not available anywhere else in Houston. A two-story patio with a view is located out front; at 4 p.m. Sundays, local musicians show up to play authentic Irish music inside.
