"We’re so excited to finally be a part of the vibrant Woodlands community,” said partners Danny Evans and Russ Morgan. “This is a prime location with incredible proximity to residences, businesses, hotels and attractions, and the casual indoor/outdoor format is a perfect match for the relaxed vibe of the area. We look forward to being a central, neighborhood-centric place to gather - whether it’s for an office happy hour, birthday, sporting event, pregaming for a concert, or just hanging out with friends.”

Kirby Ice House – The Woodlands was envisioned to provide area residents and visitors 21 and up with a relaxed respite where they can lounge while enjoying an abundance of drink options and sports entertainment.
