About and FAQ

Betelgeuse Betelgeuse is a neighborhood cocktail bar and pizza place located in Old Sixth Ward in Houston, Texas. We're open every day until 2 am! We officially opened on Friday, May 13, 2022.

What's the deal with the name?

Betelgeuse is a supergiant star in the Orion constellation. It's a short mental walk when you think about Houston, Space City, NASA, space culture, astronomy, etc. As Houstonians we've always loved space so we started thinking about fitting names for the bar that might involve that. And here we are!

What's this place all about?

Betelgeuse Betelgeuse is a neighborhood cocktail bar with pizza and snacks. We're open from 4p-2a every day. We're great for first dates, breakups, weird art, large groups, an afternoon cocktail while reading a book or finishing some work, karaoke, late night DJs, Flaming Dr. Peppers, sci-fi bathroom hallways, and friendly bartenders.

Is this a Beetlejuice themed bar?

No, but the cool thing about the culture surrounding the star Betelgeuse is that there's a lot of history involving the afterlife that was source material for the writers of the movie. So there's quite a bit of crossover, and we also really love that movie anyway.
