With six locations scattered inside the Loop, Little Woodrow's may be Houston's most popular chain of beer bars. Whether in the Heights or Bellaire, EaDo or Midtown, Houstonians flock to Little Woodrow's for the extensive beer selection served by its signature all-female service staff. 

Now owner Danny Evans is following the path of other successful operators like BB's Cafe and Dish Society by trying his luck in Katy. Set to open in May, the newest Little Woodrow's will occupy a location on the Katy Freeway next to Landry's between the Grand Parkway and Mason Road.

"Katy is really going to love us and the great happy hour and daily specials we offer," Evans emails. "We will have a state of the art TV and audio package, a game area and lounge."

As at the location on Shepherd, a full menu of burgers, wings, nachos and shareable appetizers will also be available, but the focus will be squarely on the 50 taps served along an 80-foot long bar that Evans thinks will be one of the longest in Houston.

The new location's decor will feature a mix of vintage beer and liquor signs (as well as plenty of TVs). "A customer can walk into this place and wonder if it's been open a year or several decades." Evans says.

Expect more to come from Little Woodrow's soon. Construction looks set to begin on the new Upper Kirby location on Eastside.
