Back in 1938, a guy named Coach decided he wanted to open a bar. He wanted his bar to feature the coldest beer in town and he wanted it served by friendly, beautiful girls from Texas.

Back in 1938, a guy named Coach decided he wanted to open a bar. He wanted his bar to feature the coldest beer in town and he wanted it served by friendly, beautiful girls from Texas. If his customers could get that plus a place to watch the game, hang out with good friends , and sit outside on a nice deck he’d be a real happy bar owner. Ol’ Coach didn’t know much about the business so he took a weekend job as a barback at a well known Honkey Tonk in Pasadena. During the week he was a doorman at a “men’s establishment.” Soon Ol’ Coach quit those jobs, but came away with two very important fundamentals in which he carries today right here at Little Woodrow’s. Nothing is better then Ice Cold Beer and Beautiful Women.
Coach’s first bar was named “Woodies.” Since coach was an avid duck hunter and he wanted it named after his favorite kind of duck. Ol’ Coach sort of thought he was a ladies man, so he started implying the bar was named after a certain private part of his. He often could be found out at the bar telling stupid “woodie” tales and thoroughly keeping the ladies of Houston entertained. Woodies kept going well, so Coach decided to open another bar. He named the bar “Woodrow’s” in honor of his now more mature “woodie.”
Soon Ol’ Coach had time on his hands and money to burn. He became quite the beer connoisseur traveling the world to drink beer. He became a well known poker player, skied tall mountains , and surfed tall waves. Twenty years passed and Ol’ Coach was getting old, but he decided to open another bar, one that featured the beers of his worldly travels. He wanted this bar to serve over 100 beers and create a place where everyone came to socialize, have fun and drink the ice cold beer served from beautiful women. His dilemma now was what to call the bar? He had hit the ripe old age of 50 and wanted to keep the legend of “Woodrow’s” so he had only one choice “Little Woodrow’s”
Every great bar has a story and this one is ours. Little Woodrow’s is now a famous Houston and Austin institution in beer drinking and good times and hopefully always will be. Customers can still, to this day, find Coach at the bar singing his favorite jukebox tune. “To all the girls I’ve loved before”
Thanks and come again
