AvantGarden (formerly Helios)
Helios is now AvantGarden (as of summer 2007).
AvantGarden is the home to local live music, the visual arts, writing, private parties, video, film, theater, performance art, serving Houston Texas.
"There are five dimensions to this small, two-story house: Downstairs, upstairs, front porch, backyard and patio. At any given time there could be two or three simultaneous events taking place. Performance art, dance pieces, puppet shows and even wrestling matches have been staged here.
Don’t get too distracted and forget to order one of their many unique mixed drinks. Their most famous concoction, "Night Helios" is a fiery combination of dark rum, orange liqueur, 151 and a splash of lemon juice. Helios is an art gallery, bar, coffeehouse, music venue and a bohemian hangout rolled into one cozy house".
