Already known for good food and killer cocktails, Harold’s Restaurant, Bar & Terrace is already one of the Heights’ favorite eateries. Now, this Southern-Creole fusion fave is about to get a whole lot better – and boozier.

Announced via release, Harold’s Tap Room, the restaurant’s first-floor shotgun-style bar, will open its doors next week. Formerly home to the Heights General Store, owner Alli Jarrett has converted the space into a 1,300 square foot bar that will serve up specialty cocktails, beer and wine on tap, and of course, bar snacks.

Cocktails from bar manager Lauren Muse will focus on seasonal ingredients and intricate infusions. The "Double Feature" involves drinkers in the cocktail-making process, which means that you’ll be able to infuse a cocktail for two with a Texas spirit of your choice, and seasonal spices, herbs, and fruit.

As far as food is concerned, look forward to "simple Southern dishes" like a tasting of country ham and chicken wings tossed in Valentina hot sauce and local honey.

Harold’s Tap Room will open the doors at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 19. On Fridays and Saturdays, it will stay open until 2 a.m., with food service ending just one hour prior.
