After a tiresome day of shopping, you want two things: good food, and a place to finally sit down. Oh, and maybe a cocktail or two. One of my favorite new bars is Local Pour at the River Oaks Shopping Center. The setting is hip and modern, and the food surpasses your typical greasy bar grub.
I really enjoy how spacious the inside is too – the bar spans the length of the room, and on the opposite side you have plenty of room to dance, mingle, or lounge on the plush open seating. The modern feel is encouraged by the rows of orb lights on the ceiling and the various live gigs they host. Needless to say, I love this place!
It would be a shame not to mention at least a few items from their food and drinks menus. There’s a regular dinner menu, with flavorful salads like the Baby Spinach and Peppered Feta, and a variety of gourmet burgers – even one with a croissant bun! And if you’re dropping in past normal dinner hours, there’s still a Late Night menu with calamari fries and a charcuterie & cheese board, so you won’t go hungry 🙂
On to the drinks! I’m not a beer person, but I know most guys are. That’s why Local Pour can cater to your man with their long list of brews, and us ladies can gush over the fine cocktails. Check out their “Blueberry Pomegranate Mojito,” which is a tangier version of the classic drink:
- Treaty Oak Rum
- Pomegranate Juice
- Simple Syrup
- Fresh Mint Leaves
- Club Soda
Can’t wait to go back and try this again.1
