Catbirds... Your neighborhood Cheers! 4/14/2009

A+ -- Catbirds... your neighborhood Cheers! Friendly bartenders and warm and inviting regulars greet you as you walk into this Montrose gem. It truly is a home away from home for so many people that have been frequenting for so many years. Located at Westheimer Road and Yupon Street in the Montrose area there is no better place for people watching. Any day of the week you will find a hodge podge of locals enjoying their free time with good friends and good drinks. From the professionals in their suits, to the bohemian crowd in their skinny pants and 80's inspired fashion. The third Sunday of every month you will find an incredible art show featuring extremely talented local Montrose artists, with art to sell! Enjoy daily drink specials including; Monday $2 Shiner Drafts, $5 Lone-Star and Jager Combos, Tuesday $3 Jager all day and night, Wednesday $3.5 pints of Stella Artois, and Thursday $4 pints of Arrogant Bastad. Don't forget Happy Hour 3-8pm daily; $3 well drinks, $2 domestic bottles. Also don't forget about the amazing hamburgers that come off that late night grill ran by The Mayor of Montrose, Mayor Chris Hutto, and our very own chef extraordinaire Bob! A tasty treat after a night of heavy drinking, laughing, and socializing. I invite all to enjoy this 14 year old Montrose legend! Pros: friendly service,amazing regulars, great drink specials/food Cons: nothing at all more

Laid-back Jazz Bar - Tip Scammers 3/14/2009

I think it was 8 years ago I discovered Catbird's. I recall a bartender named Karl that worked there for a while. I was very pleased to see jazz music being enjoyed by everyday people, in this establishment. The owner, Barbara, is a real lady. Her husband plays the music and she mingles. (: There is a nice patio on the side and a few tables outside in front now for you smokers. If you feel a little hungry there is fresh popped corn, what a nice little touch. The bathrooms are kind of dirty, though. There is often Cartoon Network playing and this is a perfect place for trivia buffs. The very big downside to this place is how they handle credit card transactions. Twice.. I have had a tip written in over mine here. As a former server I know how great it is to receive cash tip over credit ones. Once I left a written in tip and what I received on my statement was over twice that! Another time I wrote in Cash and left a 25% cash tip in the closest tip jar to me. I even wrote in "CASH TIP" on the merchant copy. Once again.. a written in tip on a reprinted credit slip. I only take cash there, if I go. This means an extra stop for me, as the ATM machine that was once there is a thing of the past. Be careful here. I am not the only one this has happened to. I have served Catbird's staff when I waited tables at the Black-eyed Pea.. I even gathered their liquor order when I worked at SPEC's. To get treated like this there has been a very big disappointment. Pros: Jazz Music, Drink Specials Cons: Tips Sometimes Added to Credit Card, Bathrooms Need Work more

Where everybody knows your name 12/25/2006

Catbird's is a fantastic nieborhood bar. I know I can walk in at any time and the bartender will recognize me and know my regular drinks. I never feel like I am on display when I walk in the door like some of the other local (meat markets) bars. A truley comfortable setting to relax in after a hard day of work or on a quiet Sunday. I highly recommend going in on a Sunday afternoon you'll find Matt friendly and eager to pour the drinks. It's a great place for laughs and to make memories. Pros: friendly staff Cons: none that I've seen so far more

I love this place! 2/5/2004

Had a friend introduce me to Catbird's and it is now one of my favorite places to go and just hang out. Always a friendly, diverse crowd. I always pass the info on about this cool, laid back place. Pros: laid back, friendly, great music Cons: , dirty bathrooms more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Nestled nicely on the Westheimer Curve, this appropriately dark and dusky Montrose night spot is known for its spirited NTN Trivia activity and the wonderful (recorded) jazz bubbling up in the background. You can't miss the mural of pop-culture icons like Lenny Bruce, Bob Dylan and Dizzy Gillespie, a holdover from the establishment's previous incarnation as live jazz venue called Dizzy's. Slackers, trendoids, trivia buffs, beer hogs and cool cats--all seem welcome and content.
