If you want good-kink company look no further! I love everything about RIPCORD - especially the shop. Houston doesn't have a true artisan BDSM supplies shop...

Very welcoming! Drinks were good. Bartenders were nice. I only had a drink and shots here but I can't wait to come back and visit this place on a busier night.

Ask for rich. He's an awesome bartender. Very down to earth and just a great go to for drinks. Dj Mel spins here on certain days and she keeps the crowd...
