You'd probably never notice this bar was here—only a tiny sign and a few locals coming in and out of the closed door on Temple might tip you off. The place has a laidback, discreet vibe and regular live music acts—not to mention an impressive beer and wine selection. Liz, the owner, is a perfect mix of sweet and aloof, and always has tamales on hand (from the delicious Tamales Alberto nextdoor) on Thursday evenings. Thursday is also the Old Time Jam, where you can bring in your instrument and play old-timey tunes with other musicians at every level. Lately, the spot has become more popular and is getting a bit crowded... it looks like the bar's hush-hush days are numbered.
