A few weeks back, before my dance class, I had some time to kill & decided to drop into the The Corkscrew’s new location just west of the Heights. We’ve been many times before to the old location on Washington Avenue & I was sad when the closed a few years back. They’ve been open at their new location a few months & I was glad to see they kept the porch.
The inside has the same feel as the old place & I am always happy to see a wall of wine. They offer a great selection of wines by the bottle or glass, plus a few beers & spirits.
There is a large U-shaped bar in the center of the room, and they are expanding to add a lounge area off to one side with comfy couches.
It was a beautiful day, but a tad to chilly to sit outside after the sun went down, so I plopped myself down at the bar in front of the window.
I ordered a lovely cheese & meat plate that I managed to wolf down all by myself.
The owner is super friendly & they have some great special events/food nights that you can find out about by signing up for their weekly e-newsletter.
I ordered one of their very delicious panini’s but it was too dark & I was too hungry to manage a picture of it, but I would highly recommend them.
I’m glad to see The Corkscrew back in business & in such a great location.
I’ve updated my Houston Wine Bars list- so go check it out!
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Hopefully meeting up with girlfriends tonight at The Corkscrew!
