3rd Floor is a new bar set to open this summer above longtime staple Pub Fiction. According to the bar's Facebook page, it will feature front and rear patios, 50 "American craft" beer taps and 50 wines by the glass served from a "wine preservation system." Additionally, the elevated location and front and rear patios should mean pleasant views of downtown Houston's skyline.
3rd Floor will join the rapidly expanding Midtown bar scene that already includes Capitol Bar, Dogwood and The Good Life. All this growth appears to be coming at the expense of Washington Avenue, which has suffered some high profile shutterings this year.
