Anvil Bar & Refuge is owned and operated by self-proclaimed “cocktail freaks” Bobby Heugel, Kevin Floyd, and Steve Flippo. Heugel,’s 2011 Houston Rising Star Mixologist, is recognized nationwide for his traditionally constructed, spirit-forward drinks made with fresh ingredients—including house-made bitters, sodas, infusions, and liqueurs. For the spirits-shy, Anvil features an always-changing selection of 13 hard-to-score beers on tap, including a cask beer, of mostly American micro-brews. But Anvil is a cocktail spot not to be missed. Heugel and company might be serious about their spirits, but approachability is key at this warm and casual bar, meaning even those out there who are mixology-disinclined can easily score an incredible cocktail, a warm smile, and probably a bit of take-home bartender's savvy.
