Marquis II

Recommended Posts

I know many of you will be familiar with the Marquis II in Houston.  It's a local legend of a bar that is trying to survive right now and struggling, as are many others.  The owner, Al, is doing gift cards now to try and keep things going until he can reopen.  If you're a fan of the place and so inclined, you can reach him via email at al@marquis2.com to pick one up.

I’m assuming he is printing these himself?  Standard-issue gift cards work through a bank/credit card processor and teh business doesn’t get the funds until the gift card is used

Not sure actually but I presume you may be right.   I bought one this morning and he's putting it in the mail today.

Met my wife there summer of 91. Spilled a $4 long island ice tea on her.

That was about 8 shots of alcohol in that $4 tea.  
 

Drank there from before I was allowed until about 1993.  Went back last year for the first time in 2+ decades.  Place is very different now. No couches.  Less seedy.  More like a bar than a hookup joint.

That renovation happened in the last couple years after Al took over as owner.
