The Remington Bar
If only walls could talk. At The Remington Bar, stories abound about the two decades worth of corporate moguls, high-priestesses of society and international A-list celebrities, intellectuals and royals who have made this cosmopolitan lounge their Houston salon. And while the plush booths and cozy, art-filled side rooms invite scintillating private conversations, live music on the weekends draws people onto the dance floor. Housed in the elegant St. Regis Hotel, the Remington takes advantage of the hotel’s culinary acumen by offering a menu that incorporates classic European bistro panache with the imagination of New American cuisine. The juicy hamburgers would satisfy any cattle baron – but first, try one of the bar’s signature infused-vodka martinis. Think 1920s Algonquin with a contemporary Texas twist.
Caroline Hunt spared no expense when she built the Remington Hotel in the early 1980s. The hotel changed names -- Ritz-Carlton, now St. Regis -- but the bar continues to bear the original name.
