Watching bartender Alex Gregg’s evolution over his time behind Houston bars has been akin to watching the evolution of Houston itself. He’s moved through the flush of a newfound love affair with drinks to a cheeky disregard for the “rules” and finally to a mature stance allowing room for everything worthwhile and delicious. At Moving Sidewalk (a ZZ Top reference and nod to the neighborhood’s bar-hopping tendencies), you can order an avant-garde cocktail with marigold shrub or sherry, but also have a cheap beer with no judgments passed.

What to drink
Little Reed Horses (pisco, sherry, yogurt, cucumber, lime, bitter lemon soda, celery seed). Ask Alex if he’ll make you his riff on the classic bro-shot, the Surfer on Acid.

ProTip
Alex Gregg is just cutting his teeth at cutting his own ice. If it’s a slow night, ask him for a demo and be prepared to watch a grown man’s face light up like a little boy's on Christmas morning.
