After a mid-December soft opening, Memorial Trail Ice House is now officially open, according to a Dec. 29 announcement.

The new bar takes over the renovated 1932 Juergen building at 6202 Washington Ave., Houston, near Memorial Park in the Rice Military area.

“I have lived in the Rice Military neighborhood for five years now and absolutely fell in love with the Juergen building driving by it every single day,” John Shaeffer, CEO and founder of Memorial Trail Ice House, said in the announcement. “This area needed a spacious, outdoor icehouse that brings a different experience than the bars and clubs along Washington Avenue.”

The bar offers a 20,000-square-foot dog-friendly patio and daily food truck offerings.

Bar and beverage consultants Ladies of Libation, Kris Sowell and Laurie Harvey developed the bar program, including an exclusive cocktail, “Bee Someone,” a fizzy vodka lemonade.
