Opened in 2008 by whiskey aficionados Mike Raymond and Steve Long, Reserve 101 features 340+ whiskeys from 14 different countries, including rare selections, Texas whiskeys and hand-selected private barrels bottled directly from some of the world's best distilleries. With an edgy-but-friendly staff committed to educating customers about the ins and outs of whiskey and other spirits, along with monthly whiskey tastings hosted by master distillers and ambassadors from premium brands from around the world.

Reserve was recognized with a Gold award in Whisky Magazine's "Great Whiskey Bars of the World” in 2012 – the only bar in Houston and one of 20 in the U.S. to earn the distinction – and was selected as one of the "Best Whisky Bars in the USA” by The Whisky Isle in November 2013. Notable visitors have included The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Shakira, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Dana White and Sean Penn.

Visit Reserve for Happy Hour on Monday-Saturday from 2-6 p.m. for half-priced premium draft beer, $5 premium cocktails and $20 bottles of wine. Each draft beer has a suggested whiskey pairing, such as an Odell 90 Shillings beer with a Dalmore 12 year old.
