The on-campus bar, from when such a thing was allowed. Its a great little cave under the stairs tucked away on Rice University campus. Yeah a vegan can get a great meal here, barley pop.

Valhalla has over 100 years of history. Mix and mingle with the intellectuals of Rice University... upper and lower class students. There is draft beer and other popular beers available. If you want to get away from the crowds and the usual bar scene this will do it. It has the atmosphere of a cellar and a warm and friendly clients. The patrons are friendly and the bar tenders will give you history lessons on Rice University, activities as well as places to see and things to do while in Houston.
I would recommend Valhalla if you want of visit for just a beer or meet friends.

This bar has no sign, it is under the stairs at the "old chemistry" building at Rice University. Used to be the professors "Smoking" room. Great prices on draft beer. fun to have a few drinks and enjoy the history. Ask how to get there. Check tehir web site for hours, as they do change..

If you are on the rice university campus, this is a good place to drop by for a beer. Some of the offerings are quite cheap. I got a beer for 95 cents. They have an outdoor beer garden area that is a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the campus , especially around sunset. This bar is an institution and an integral part of the rice university social scene. Worth a look.

My brother-in-law is a graduate student at Rice. He took us here to show it off. We were impressed by this little gem on campus. The place is small and the beer is cheap. We took our beers back up to the outside and enjoyed them under the trees. Glad he took us here.
