Reviews for The Original OKRA Charity Saloon

At Okra, one doesn't have a drinking problem; one has a drinking solution. That's because Okra — named for the collective of independent restaurant and bar owners that manages it — donates 100 percent of its proceeds to local charities. The bar is testament to its founders' dedication to preserving historic Houston. The owners converted the old Red Cat Jazz Cafe into one gigantic open space, with mismatched furniture surrounding a central bar and the beautiful, vaulted skylight serving as natural décor. A simple menu with bar offerings that are serviceable for spirits snobs and after-work crowds alike makes it easy to feel okay about drinking at Okra.

Beautiful space in a newly revived part of downtown Houston. Craft cocktails and a carefully curated wine and beer lists with all profits going to charity, what else could you need to feel better about imbibing?

This new addition to downtown is a beauty. Love the charity concept, too. You can also order milk and cookies, which are right out of the oven and delicious. The entrance can be a bit nondescript - it's the red-framed entryway.

Terrible service. I stood at the bar for 30 minutes trying to get a single beer and some food. The server was inattentive and served multiple people that had arrived after me while I stood patiently waiting. When I finally did get service she didn't give me a bill, despite my saying that I didn't want to run a tab. Another 15 minute wait to get her attention again and the food had arrived so I gave up on the bill.

A couple of days later I find that they had generously given themselves a 20% tip. More fool me for using a debit card.
