Best pizza in town and awesome staff!!!
When we got there it was kind of slow and evryone seemed to know each other, kind of like a big family. They were all so nice and the service was great! It picked up throughout the night and got busy, but not to the point where you would want to leave because you can't move. The whole staff seemed to work VERY hard to make sure that everyone had what they needed. They also have a cocktail waitress on the floor and for the patio so you don't have to go to the bar for your drinks if you don't want to. We ordered some pizza (which by the way was homemade and awesome) and it came out fast even though they were busy-I was impressed! The patio is huge and is great for the summer and day drinking! You can tell the bar is an old building but it seems to give it character that you almost don't want to take away. This is a very cool place to hang out with friends and have a good time and some cheap drinks. We have been going back ever since and will continue to do so forever!

We have given up on this place..
We live in the Camden Greenway apartments right behind the Velvet Melvin. Even so, we have completely stopped going there. The place is run-down and dirty; the furniture is torn, broken, and old. The menus are sticky with old food and beer, the tables are rarely cleaned, and it is not rare to see trash on the floor. The place smells like a coffin and the women's restroom is too often stopped up with feces and paper - disgusting!! But that is the least of your worries.. We have been served flat/skunky beer too often and complaints just get a "What else would you rather have?" My boyfriend ended up horribly sick after eating their Melvin Melt. We gave the place one last chance on Superbowl Sunday. We had to ask for the music to be turned down so we could hear the TV. To top things off, we both got stomachaches from the free jello shots they gave out during the Superbowl. Unless you are depressed and drinking alone, I strongly suggest you go somewhere else.

DO NOT PARK ON THE CURB IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING. IT IS ILLEGAL TO PARK THERE!! THERE ARE CITY OF HOUSTON SIGNS DESIGNATING THAT WHOLE SECTION AS "NO PARKING ANYTIME".
IF YOU PARK THERE, IT BLOCKS THE VIEW OF ONCOMING TRAFFIC TO THOSE TURNING ONTO RICHMOND FROM AUDLEY STREET. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE CRIMINALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMEONE BEING IN AN ACCIDENT!!

a few months ago it was ok until.........
I have been to this pub 2-3 times with a group of freinds and it has been ok until one night. One of the female bartenders (skinny one with brn hair and a piercing over her right eye) was just angry at the world or just very foul natured towards us(group of girls and guys). I had finished my drink and waited patiently for whichever bartender to come around. They were either too busy talking to their freinds or talking to the jerks that actually do give them a hard time at the other end of the bar. So no worries I waited and the one that kept passing by was either ignoring us or just didnt see us. Eventually she stood in front of us and was pouring a pitcher. I tried to call her (we were all on empty by now) and she just ignored us. She stared right past us up at the TV and we were right in front of her. So I raised my glass and as I did the glass shook and the ice made a bit of noise. She miraculously heard that noise and not me. She instantly turned to the other bartenders at the end of the bar motioning a hand in the air as if shaking a glass, mimicing what she thought I was doing. They looked right at me and then came up to see if we needed anything. I explained to the other bartender that I think I had upset the inner balence of the sensitive bartender who was ignoring us and I appologized. I have been to pubs like this all over the world and I have never been treated like this by any bartender ever. I am always polite and I dont get stupid when I drink. I used to own a bar and thus I know what it feels like on the other side of the bar. I always told my waitstaff to give the customer the benefit of the doubt, handle the jerks as you feel you shood, pay attention to everyone no matter how much they spend, and if you cant handle it then find a new bar to work at or find a new career alltogether. Speed counts when trying to make tips as does nammers. You can be both fast and polite at the same time. Some tenders forget that. It cost her that night.

The first three tap beers I tried were spoiled and nasty.
Went to this place after work, couldnt find a parking lot (parked on the street). The inside is nasty, the A/C vents are black. The chairs and bar are all gross. I orderd a Bluemoon on tap, I noticed the beer was discolored, almost clear. I tasted it and it was spoiled. I told the bartender and she acted like she could care less, she gave me a Shock top on tap and it was bad too! I told her about it and she then said she would let someone know. I then asked for a sample of the Guiness on tap, it also was bad.... I dont think they clean the lines or service the taps. I felt grossed out after sipping these tap beers. She didnt even flag them as not to use until checked. I couldnt wait to get out of this place. I will never go back. I am not a picky person but this place was nasty.

BEST Happy Hour Bartender and Drink Specials
After work this is the best happy hour spot. It may be a hole in the wall, but sometimes those are the best places. The bartender (Jessica) is not only hot, but fast and funny. She will keep you smiling while getting you tipsy. I go here just to see her, maybe the drinks too. It is definitely the best place for a drink after work!!!
