A Taste of the Historic

When young Henry Toujouse arrived from France in 1872, Galveston was a bustling port city. He found work at the Opera House Saloon where he'd observe Galveston’s businessmen and youth gather. Toujouse moved across Tremont Street, opening First Henry's Cafe in the Stag Hotel in 1894. In 1913, he sold his hotel and retired. Today, The Tremont House leases this historic site from the Galveston Historical Foundation. This magnificent rosewood bar has been restored to its original beauty and serves its purpose once again in the atrium of our hotel.

You Won't Be Disappointed

The staff is awesome! I love coming to this place, especially when the music is playing! Friday and Saturday nights there's free live jazz music. Sit, relax (drink if you want too) and listen. It's a great place to come and wind down after a week at work. I totally recommend this bar. You won't be disappointed.

A Bass Player Performs In The Lobby!

This bar is a nice place to grab an after dinner drink. They have an extensive martini list as well as a few food options (including a charcuterie plate!). Waitstaff was friendly and attentive, drinks were delicious, and there was a nice piano and bass player performing in the lobby.

I LOVE this bar.

I LOVE this bar. It is absolutely beautiful. I always frequent it when I am in Galveston. The bartenders are seasoned and know how to make delicious old fashions, martinis, manhattans, Bloody Mary, Moscow Mule...I've tried them all.
