Last night was the grand opening of Workhorse Bar, a cool little neighborhood joint in the trendy North Loop.
Located across from Phara’s and next to Hog Wild, two of my favorite spots, a cool bar is exactly what this shabby chic area needed. The massive crowd in attendance at the grand opening was evidence enough.
I didn’t get to sample any food, but from what I heard, the burgers and mac & cheese are top notch and made from local ingredients. I was impressed by their 50-ish beers on tap which feature a great selection of local and other craft beers. There’s a full bar, too.
The decor is sparse, but what’s there is cool. Nice tree accents on tables and some of the bar stools.
Really fun paintings, too.
Outside seating in the back and an unbelievably good jukebox complete the picture and make Workhorse a great hangout spot.
