CLUB•ICE HOUSE•LOUNGE By Mike Cook Photography by Daniel Ortiz IRISH COWBOY WHERE GREEN BEER IS ALWAYS FLOWING SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED A LITTLE MIDTOWN IN YOUR LIFE. Any given (insert just about any day of the week here), you will find droves of Houstonians trying their best to parallel park when the valet is full, waiting in lines, jaywalking like nobody’s business – and partying. Maybe you haven’t been in a while, or maybe you left your keys and cell phone somewhere on Smith Street last night; either way, you may not know Celtic Garden is now Irish Cowboy. The rebranded and expanded Irish pub (the Irish part) now has a bigger backyard beer garden (the Cowboy part) filled with seating, cornhole, ping pong, pergolas, shade sails, string lights, a stage for live music or a DJ, about 1 million TVs, speakers to make music for miles and a whole new Texas-sized bar. They pretty much nailed the reno with the additions out here. Reserve a section for your after-work happy hour, or go with 25 friends to watch college football – it really does not matter why
