The Refinery Burgers & Whiskey
An exposed duct hangs high overhead amid the buzz of fans hanging from a hardwood ceiling that look down on a concrete bar stretching through the industrial-inspired dining area of The Refinery Burgers & Whiskey. Described as “light and open” and “dotted with clean touches” on Josha Justice’s Houston Press blog, the no-nonsense menu of burgers, dogs, and “amazing” onion rings according to CultureMap Houston is complimented by pours of local No Label and Karbach beers served in mason jars. Exposed, industrial woodwork reaches out onto the patio, which is lit by strings of overhead light bulbs and volunteer fireflies and offers unobstructed views of the west side’s skyline.
