This week, Houston’s First Ward will become home to Spring Street Beer & Wine Garden, the city’s newest destination for brews and bottles.

The bar announced its arrival at 1920 Houston Avenue on Facebook earlier this week, after hosting a few soft opening events this past weekend. The new bar was developed in collaboration with Amy Felan, who formerly owned a popular wine bar called Cactus & Vine in Corpus Christi. That bar shuttered in 2016, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, when Felan decided to move back to Space City.

When Spring Street Beer & Wine Garden was announced back in January, its owners announced in a Facebook post that the new bar would offer a similar “low key, relaxed” vibe as Cactus & Vine. It will also offer lots of outdoor seating via a large covered patio that will be dog-friendly, on which diners can enjoy bites from a rotating schedule of Houston food trucks. As far as the booze is concerned, the bar will offer 25 different varieties of wine, more than a dozen beers on draft, along with a full bar and cocktails crafted by former Le Colonial bartender Sonia Thornhill.

Spring Street Beer & Wine Garden will officially open to the public on Thursday, October 19.

We had a great weekend letting our neighbors get a peek before we open up later this week. The staff learned a lot! Thanks for everyone's support!
