A Rare Vintage
If the Victorian Lobby is the Menger’s heart, then the Menger Bar can certainly be regarded as its soul. Built in 1887 as an exact replica of London’s House of Lords Pub, this revered establishment has a paneled ceiling of dark cherry wood, beveled mirrors from France and the original brass spittoons provided for the convenience of its early customers.
Once the site of more cattle deals than any place else in Texas, the Menger Bar has been voted one of the Top 10 Most Historic Bars in the United States. It’s also where Theodore Roosevelt recruited his Rough Riders before heading off to fight the Spanish-American War. Serving up innovative cocktails and cuisine, with a generous helping of Lone Star history on the side, the Menger Bar will make your visit something to remember.
