Scholars and Scoundrels’ new Katy location brings additional guest accommodations and an ability to host more events at the bar and restaurant, owner Anthony Petronella said.

The gist

Last July, Scholars and Scoundrels hosted its “season finale” in its flagship location at 1251 Pin Oak Road, Ste. 141, Katy. Since the closing, restaurant owners have been working on a larger space to accommodate its fast-growing fan base in the Katy area, Petronella said.
  • The new location, located at 25140 Kingsland Blvd., Ste. 1000, Katy, doubles the size from 3,500 square feet to 7,000 square feet, Petronella said. Features of the new location include:
  • Indoor and outdoor bars, each seating 20 people
  • Party room, which can accommodate parties up to 150
  • Pet-friendly patio area
“It’s the same place, just a little bit bigger so we can accommodate more people,” he said. “It’s good food, good drinks and good times.”

Other Scholars and Scoundrels locations include:
  • 17101 W. Grand Parkway S., Sugar Land
  • 6845 Peek Road, Ste. 100, Katy
On the menu

Guests can feast upon menu favorites, including:
  • Shrimp in a bag, a shrimp boil with green beans, mushrooms, corn and onions
  • The Walk of Shame, a fried chicken sandwich with green chile queso blanco, a sunny side up egg with lettuce and tomatoes
  • Slawdog Millionaire hot dog, featuring coleslaw, chili, house-made mustard and onions
Patrons can wash food down with cocktails such as Taste the Rainbow, which is a fruity mule, or a Suck My Jalapeno margarita.

The menu is updated at least twice a year and is always evolving, Petronella said.

What else?

With the new location, the restaurant will be able to host more parking lot parties, festivals, live music and potentially comedy shows, Petronella said.

The restaurant also hosts weekly events, including:
  • Tuesday: Singo, which is a form of musical bingo
  • Thursday: Steak night
  • Sunday: DJ brunch
The team also plans to host its grand opening of the new location in June, though a finalized date has not been established, Petronella said.
