great music crappy staff

was there last night for an amazing show, bobby mack, texas johnny brown and john mcvey. the bartender, susan i think, was so rude. couldnt smile, acted like u were bothering her when u asked for a drink. when my friend told her to smile she said ""i dont come to your work and tell u what to do"". he had never been there and i doubt he will go again. she had one speed and it was slow. really sad because the place was packed. probably ruined it for some. bartender can make or break at night...think it broke

Rude Staff

I went there with a reference of my friend, but I was very disappointed. The bar staff neglected me and they were very rude to me. They also have a very ridiculous rule ""$10 minimum for credit card charges""
The reason I went there was because I had a bad night and wanted to relax a little bit. However, that night became a nightmare with the Big Easy Social&Pleasure Club...
I will never go there again.
So, NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!!!!!

Big Easy Social & Pleasure Club

We love the music and dance floor, always great music but I think most patrons would be willing to pay $10 to get in rather than $5 if they would replace the barstools and clean the place up a bit. Last visit my wooden barstool had only 1/2 a seat. The others were covered with filthy cloth so we had to stand the whole night or get our clothes dirty. I understand from my grown children that this is part of the atmosphere but I think they've carried dirty a little far!!

Rudest Bar Staff, Grumpy Owner

I love the blues. The live music that played was wonderful and professional. No garage band here. However, the male help is less than desirable. I noticed how the owner of the bar would sit in the corner and when someone took his seat (you couldn't tell anyone was sitting there or using that chair, as it was off in the corner), he acted as if you stole his wife. Though he wasn't mean to me (thank gawd)- the only male bartender with the black 80's flock of seagull haircut was. I stood there as he helped everyone but me. He very non-appologetically gave me the drink free though I that wasn't what I wanted- I just wanted to be served in the order of the cue-up. You could tell he couldn't a smile and to talk to him he wouldn't even look at you until I had to say, ""Do I have to speak up?( to get served here?)"" three times. I wasn't even being obnoxious, just asking a matter of fact question. So he said, ""I'm just making sure my best client gets a drink"". Then the client himself, an obvious alcoholic man in his 90's, turned to me and said, ""And I tip like a Mo' Fo'"". The free drink sucked and I'm sure if I weren't standing there watching he would have put mucus in it. The blonde waitress was very kind and attentive. She and the music were the only positive things about the place. Like the previous reviewer, I too will be letting others know about my experience at this bar. With all the places in Houston to choose from that will go out of their way to make you feel good, why go here?

Not good

I brought a funloving good group of people in, and we were insulted by the owner Tom.
We are all in the service industry and love to tip well etc.
He was not happy about where we were dancing in a practically empty club.
He insulted me and my friends many times over while getting physical. This really hurts because the Big Easy used to be one of my favorite places, and I have gone there for years. I never have had a problem with Tom and I always really liked him.
Don't understand why this happened, but I will NEVER be back- and I will be sure to share my experience with anyone I can.

This is Dr Leland's Favorite (and mine) place for the BLUES!

Top of the Top! Tom always does a great job keeping it BLUE. The best of the best in musicians come there regularly Allan Haynes,Texas Johnny Brown,Guitar Shorty,John Mcvey, to name a few. Safe location,parking,$5.00 on weekends (worth twice), drinks well priced.(and mixed). You will not be disappointed there ever. This place is always written up in the Houston Music News (best and oldest music publication in Houston!!

Good place to play

For all the fussing about parking...remember it's FREE. The staff tries hard to keep trouble to a minimum, you WILL be ejected if you act like a jerk. And there's few places in town that are as open and un-cliqueish as this one. Handicapped accessible and that is a plus for me. Only downside is that they keep building Yuppie Housing all around. (Condos in former parking area.)

Mullets Galore

The Big Easy rocks. What other place are you guaranteed to see a mullet and some gold lame all in the same night? It's one of my favorite bars in H-town.

grunge with style

We thought that we were in the ""wrong place"" when we showed up there after a (Formal) wedding but everyone acted like no big deal, come as you are. We had a great time, in spite of the cracked vinyl seating which snagged that horrible dress! Drinks were cheap and the MUSIC was RICK LEE...need I say more?
