Axelrad is about celebrating Houston, being outside, and relaxing.
Conceived as a gathering place for the community offering beer, wine, drinks, Luigi’s pizza, live music, and a grove of hammocks, Axelrad aims to be a place for all.
The bar is housed within a 100-year-old renovated building, originally a small grocery store built by David and Gertrude Axelrad. Adding to the historic interior are artist-made tap handles by Venezuelan-based Maria Rangel, seating by New Living’s HTX Made, and textiles by Austin-based Nido.
Axelrad’s garden features a mix of native, regional, and heirloom plants, and hosts a variety of video art pieces, film screenings, live music, events, festivals, and more. Expansive outdoor and indoor spaces are suitable for large and small gatherings. Bike and car parking are located on site and surrounding, and METRORail’s Red Line Ensemble Station is just a few blocks away.
The project's design, including concept, interior, and branding, was done as a collaboration between gindesignsgroup, Evan O'Neil, Adam Brackman, and Monte Large. Elise Capers is the backbone of the business and keeps Axelrad running smooth and sassy. Live Music programming, entertainment events, and live video streaming is a collaboration with Wonky Power Records.
