Overview

Axelrad is all about celebrating Houston, being outside, and relaxing. Conceived as a community-gathering place offering beer, wine, drinks, Luigi's pizza, live music, and the city's only hammock grove, Axelrad aims to be a place for all. The bar's interior is housed within a 100-year-old renovated building, originally a grocery store built by David and Gertrude Axelrad. Artists added to the beautiful historic interior with tap handles by Venezuelan-based Maria Rangel, seating by New Living's HTX Made, and textiles by Austin-based Nido.

Super beer list + hammocks. We were there on a quiet afternoon. Not many shady spots so, the afternoons can get hot.
