Where it's Happy Hour all The Time!. This bar is awesome! From the people that brought you Barfly's (5420 Airport Blvd.), The Hideout Pub (12164 North MOPAC), and Bender Bar and Grill (Suite 300 @ 321 West Ben White Blvd.). MUGSHOTS IS NOT A COLLEGE BAR! There might be some people there that are that age, but this is a bar where you can get away from the 6th street rigamaroll and the frat losers and can actually have a good time! The juke box is 0% hip hop! You will like this juke box: everything from Foo Fighters, The Stones, ACDC, The Who, Ween, The Cult, Nine Inch Nails, Duran Duran, System of a Down, Smashing Pumpkins, Slayer, ZZ Top, and more newer alternative music that has no hip hop! Tons of domestic, LOCAL and imported beer in the cooler to choose from. Outdoor smoking patio with speakers from the jukebox. Tons of indoor and outdoor seating. One pool table. Cozy atmosphere. MONDAY NIGHT (8 to close) is OPEN MIC NIGHT, hosted by Acoustic Odyssey (12 string guitarist Chuck Miller and the Kickass J Shepard on six string guitar). Bring a guitar and sing yer butt off. Sign up starts at 8. Great Food is right across the street: Kebabalicious- Turkish Style Wraps. Order a hot kebab and wash it down at the bar with a cold beer. Good Stuff! What else is there to say? CHEAP DRINK PRICES! Domestic Beers: $2.50 Wells: $2.50. You can get a LONE STAR and a JAGER SHOT for $5! It's called a happy meal. Great mixed drink prices too, you will be impressed how far your money will go. Cool bartenders: J, Joe, Albert and Marcos. No attitude except the good kind. The people that come to mugshots are cool too: no attitudes, just people that want to party on cheap drinks and smoke their brains out on the patio while listening to good music. A NEW photo booth is coming too! Mugshots is at 407 E. 7th Street, between Trinity and Neches, right across the street from the parking lot that is a whole city block, so plenty of parking. Checkout Mugshots on myspace too! THIS IS A GREAT BAR FOR TOURISTS! Mugshots = Good Times!
Searching for a better atmosphere. Iv'e been trying to find bars where i don't have to be surrounded by frat daddys and sorrostitutes, can relax, and actually afford to get a little drunk and have a decent conversation. Drink prices are awsome for 6th and my bartender was great.
My favorite bar. I've been going to this bar for almost two years now and I've never had a bad time there. Never too crowded and the regulars are great! Bartenders are friendly and fast. They have plenty of beers and always something you've probably never heard of. Jukebox is the reason I came back to this bar, great music! All in all, there is no doubt that mugshots is my favorite bar downtown!!
Spacious, relaxed neighborhood bar is close to Sixth Street..
Originally a house built in 1872, the unusual structure features stone walls and soothing wood. The bar counter and main floor are from original 19th century material. Tables in several small rooms create privacy, and amenities include foosball and pool. A photo booth gives customers the chance to capture their evening and the images are posted throughout the bar. Low-priced wells and more than 25 bottled beers and are available, but wine is limited.
Maybe the most underated bar.... Mug Shots is one of those places we just decided to try... and so glad we did. We've been coming here now for at least a year... and I almost don't want to tell anyone about it. It's never too-too crowded. The juke box has great music. The bartenders and staff are great. Friendly and fast, and good at what they do. Prices are better than any I've seen on 6th. And, yes, there is one pool table and fuz-ball... many tables to chill, a great bar to sit at.... AND an outdoor area for you smokers. Un-pretentious and comfortable. No frattys here! Thank goodness...this is a real bar.
