great place – Heather rocked, great time fun time, karoke was hilarious. will be back next time i go out on the town. nice people greatest bartenders in town
Suitable for Sports Fans only – This place is more for a younger crowd, interested in sports viewing on the big screen TVs. If you are not a sports fan don't even bother going there. Was not really impressed. The drinks were average but the service was good.
Great Food, Best Bartenders, Great for Sports Fans – I've been coming to the Mezz since it opened, and have gotten to know the management/staff very well. I walk in and everyone knows my name! I hardly ever go to any other bar anymore. Poker nights are always fun, as are the themed parties.
Great for the Gay Golden Tee player and Jalepeno things – As a young gay professional from Indy. I had heard from a friend of mine in Chicago that this place had a great group of Gay Golden Tee players. Just want to say thanks to the bar and GT players I 'hung' with. JStew, Staceman, BAW, Tater, Spanky, and Da Skooter. Thanks for the great evening rolling the trackball(s)! HeHe, you know what I mean. xoxoxoxo :)
The jalepeno things are to die for! Better than Antanio Bandaras in a banana hamock!!!
Your buddy Chad from Indy!
Best Sports Bar! – The Mezz is great and has hosted the Texian Army and El Batallon, the supporter's groups of the Houston Dynamo, for two years now and we love every minute we spend there, be it for Dynamo games or National team games. They have a wide array of beers and liquor, plus their ever-growing food menu is top notch. The burgers and pizza are easily the best on the menu.
The bar tenders are also really nice and learn your name real fast and are super nice and have no problem in joining in on the fun. During one away viewing party in 2007, the upstairs was jam packed with Dynamo fans and the place was rocking, literally. The floor was vibrating from jumping and singing and the tenders joined in!
Their birthday drink is also really nice, and huge! Karaoke is always a blast and people sing everything from common Karaoke to stranger things. The trivia games are fun, as well, and poker is common. Every sport you can think of can be on the TVs. Just ask! Astros, Rockets, Texans, Dynamo, whatever!
I tell ya, I always go to the Mezz for sporting events and will continue to do so. They are just amazing and the owner, Tonya, is a real sweet gal! A good friend!
Best NTN/Buzztime location in Houston – My husband COOGS and I have been regulars here for a couple of years now, coming 2-3 times per week to play NTN/Buzztime trivia with our friends. Mezz offers an all-around great experience, from the attentive staff to the food (the Mezzy burger is a world unto itself, while COOGS swears by the nachos) to the ambience (lots of things to do even for the non-trivia player, including pool, karoaoke, Golden Tee, and and Texas Hold 'Em). The Mezzanine rightfully won the Houston Press "Reader's Choice" award this year for best drink specials, from its $2.50 U-Call-It Tuesdays to the Fiesta Fridays where both Dos Equis and margaritas come in also at $2.50.
Owners Tonya and Tommy put a lot of energy into coming up with even more ways for people to have fun, from the monthly theme party to the new Wednesday movie night on the patio with free popcorn. Plus this is "the" place to celebrate a birthday--as we both will be doing this week: the enormous "Gullywasher" for the birthday person, plus free drink tickets if at least 10 friends come along and $10 of Mezzy bucks.
All in all, a wonderful place for people of varying ages and interests to come together and enjoy themselves.
sports and fun – Love the place. great for watching the games, when there are not sports on they have a great juke box and some nights karoke. i like that it is two levels with a patio, so you have 3 places to find the fun crowd. For sports bar food i think it is very good, TRY THE GRASSHOPPERS. I also like the fact that the owners seem to be hands on, they are there often and treat their customers like they are guests. Great drink specials, especial tues. and thur. if you are looking for a fun bar i definetily recommened it.
FUN!!!!!!!! – we had the best time here! lots of people, great drinks, good prices, and fun kareoke (spelling?). we laughed so hard at everyone singing, in a good way, it was really fun!
Great Sunday Afternoon Spot – My Wife and I do a pub most Sunday afternoons. The MEZZ has the four things key to a great time. 1) A full pint of cold Shiner Bock- none of that 3/4" missing, "it's for the head", funny bussiness here. You paid for the pint you get the whole frosty delicious pint! 2) Some of the best pub food in town- the Buffalo wings are killer and the burgers are nice and juicy. 3) "Crak machines"-You know these little guys, they are the video machines on the bar that remove all the $1s out of my wallet. And finally 4) A great jukebox selection- I don't want to have to read a lot of hand written personal mixed CD's. I want the picture of the artist on the front and I don't want the album that sat on the discount sales stand for a year either. See'ya Sunday.
Good Neighborhood Bar – Many themed nights and different types of happy hours. I've mostly gone on weeknights - Tuesday Trivia is great! Friendly bar staff, casual atmosphere, and a good place to dress down and hang out at.
