Barringer Bar's new location is OPEN NOW at 108 Main St. in downtown Houston. With an upstairs room that can accommodate large parties, and a downstairs bar open to the public, Barringer is a classy spot to socialize or kick back with some specialty drinks.

Longtime industry veterans, husband-and-wife team Robby and Chieko Cook aim to bring something fresh to downtown Houston. On the docket: live music, aerialists, craft cocktails as well as the classics, amidst an upscale, speakeasy feel.

Barringer bar & Lounge takes its name from the old Barringer Norton Tailors that resided in the building of the original location. The owners of Barringer are lifetime Houstonians and are committed to preserving the history of downtown Houston.
