Austin export HandleBar is now open in Houston at 5219 Washington Avenue, just in time for New Year’s Eve. It’s been in business in Houston for about a week: the bar opened on Thursday, December 21, according to its website.

This place doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously: it’s tagline online is “Hey Houston, let's get weird” and an iconic photo of Tom Selleck is all over HandleBar Houston’s Facebook page.

Fun fact: The Austin HandleBar is the one of the first locations in Austin for a bitcoin ATM and was said to be the first bar to ever offer a bitcoin ATM. That was way back in 2014, way before bitcoin became the craze it is today.
