The corner of Travis St. and Texas Ave. was the site of the Capitol of the Republic of Texas from 1837-1839. Lawless Spirits & Kitchen now sits in the original space under the historic Rice Hotel and features one of Houston’s best patio views.
Lawless specializes in chic cocktails and shareable bites. Stop by after work for a variety of tempting upscale finger foods and seasonal craft beers. The Bulgogi Korean chicken tacos and lawless burger are favorites among diners. Lawless’ extensive cocktail menu offers old favorites and new creations.
When the Rice Hotel was still an actual hotel, the private member Capital Club existed in the current Lawless Kitchen space. Some of Houston’s most famous politicians and businessmen spent their time here. Even President John F. Kennedy stopped by for a drink on the night before his assassination.
