RUDE BARTENDERS – I really liked Rudyard's after I went there for the first time a couple weeks ago...I ordered my food and a couple of drinks and I was having a nice time just hanging out at the bar...Next thing you know I start realizing that the bartenders (2 girls) look like they're about to collapse. They were working hard but they started giving everyone a huge attitude and were taking forever to serve drinks to just a few people at the bar. Not only that, but I tried to help someone standing behind me place their order and the bartender snapped at me. I was just trying to get her some much needed service. I was disgusted with their attitudes and so I left. I would like to go back but I do NOT want to deal with the two rudest bartenders in Houston again.
The Neighborhood Bar that Rocks – You finally find the oneway stretch of Waugh heading north from Westheimer and just when you think 'Damn, I'm lost in a neighborhood,' there's Rudz right before you reach the light at Welch. Just inside the door is a traditional drop canopy British style bar and pub tables and dart boards. The wrought iron staircase leads to a roadhouse style room that features some of the best local and touring bands in Houston. When theysay see'um here before they're rock stars they mean it. Don't forget to order smething scrumptious.
Rudyard's - The Best Club for Live Music – Rudyard's should be the template for all local music venues. The beer selection is good (they're the only place I know of that carries 1554), and the kitchen is great (give the burgers a try). The bartenders are friendly and keep things moving (you never feel ignored). Most importantly, Rudyard's has the best sounding room/PA in Houston. Much of the credit goes to the soundman Joe, who is one of the few to realize that the kick drum should not be louder than the rest of the band. All the instruments (vocals included) are clear, punchy and well-balanced. Bands sound better here than they do elsewhere, and I think local music would have more support if more clubs sounded as good as Rudyard's.
THE BEST! – Thank God for Rudyards! In a land of bad meat markets where people seem to spend more time trying to impress rather than just sitting back and being cool with one another, Rudyards comes to the rescue! It's a place where Houston can breathe and listen to the best indie local and touring bands.
Oh yah--The staff is helpful, friendly, and cute too. Definitely a place to hang with friends and get drunk!
Rudz – If you are tired of the same old stuffed shirt crowd and looking for a relaxed atmostphere with lots of beers on tap, the best burger in town, and interesting entertainment, then this neighborhood bar is your place. Darts, great jukebox, and live entertainment upstairs on many nights.
cool, man.... – downstairs...this place is great for a pint, and some conversation;the jukebox has a very interesting mix of music to choose from ...upstairs, the shows are always cool. This is the first place I ever drank a St. Arnold's Lawnmower - therefore it is forever deemed a darn cool establishment!
