Celebrating Black History:

Located at 420 Main Street in Downtown Houston, Taste Kitchen + Bar invites guests to experience "A Taste of History" both inside and out.

As the leading seller of Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey in Houston, Taste Kitchen + Bar presents an exclusive Uncle Nearest Old Fashioned Challenge Menu. Featuring three tantalizing cocktails made with Uncle Nearest whiskey, each sip contributes to the fundraising efforts. For every Old Fashioned purchased, $1 will be donated to the Challenge campaign, with Uncle Nearest generously matching donations nationwide to support HBCU scholarships.
