Lola’s Depot

Houston, Texas

Houston’s Montrose neighborhood has seen upscale bars and restaurants descend upon the once gritty area of the city nestled just west of downtown. Opened in 1983, Lola’s Depot is a purple fireball full of stickers and graffiti illuminated with only the faint hint of light. The building consists of little more than a shack with an expansive back patio, some of the stickers affixed to the cluttered walls quite possibly load bearing at this point. The floors are deteriorating, the ceiling painted black, the walls on occasion lined with Christmas-grade tinsel. The roof sometimes houses a massive inflatable and the bar’s interior design includes a human-sized replica bottle of Maker’s Mark. Lola’s Depot is a Houston dive bar in the purest sense of the phrase, a dark alcove in a part of Houston best served by just this kind of dive.
