About FAO

FAO HTX is the brainchild of some industry veterans, who have been bartending and managing some of the most enjoyable bars in the area over the past decade. You may find them behind the bar, challenging you to a game or picking the next song to play.

After surveying the more than 6500 sq. ft of open space situated on the top floor of a 1960’s office building in the heart of the West Midtown Entertainment District, a concept was developed to take full advantage. The idea was to create a Bar/Tavern/Pub/Saloon that was not only approachable but would entertain our customers in many facets.

FAO HTX started the party by partnering with Bar Partners out of Austin, Texas. A modern-day gaming company that prides itself at introducing the hot new arcade games to the market, as well as providing some of the classic interactive games to places across Texas and the South Eastern United states.

FAO HTX then went ahead and loaded up with some of the most popular games you might find in the ultimate game room on an episode of Cribs. Stop by and check out the selection of fun to pair with some expertly crafted cocktails, locally craft draft selection and bartenders that enjoy hosting people that love to attend a good party.
