Top Local Tips for Corpus Christi

The Keg Room I have been a regular there for the better part of six months, and I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere. For the most part. It's a small hole in the wall; which I prefer. It's quiet for the most part. The clientele is mostly an older crowd, which leads to a pretty nice time free from the drunken nonsense that frequents some other watering holes. The bartenders, Nicole and Melissa, are friendly and can make any drink under the sun. All this being said, one would think "The Keg" would be a top pick for best bar in Corpus. Alas, that's not so. The owner stinks up the air of companionship and relaxation with her incessant bad attitude. Rude, insulting, and downright incompetent, I have chosen not to even enter the establishment when she is working, which is most days during the afternoon shift. For starters, she is a horrible manager. She treats her employees more like slaves than fellow bartenders. One of the drink slingers is currently being forced out of her position, even though she is well liked by all the customers and is one of the best bartenders I have ever seen. I assume this is because she has the unfortunate condition of having an opinion, something the "Shrew" frowns upon when dealing not only with her staff, but the customers. I personally heard the alleged bipolar owner say this to a customer: "Have you ever tried this drink? It's really good. But I only have enough ingredients to make one, and I'm not going to waste it on you." This was not said in jest. She was quite serious. And this was to a loyal patron who was quite offended. But this is the norm from the neurotic mess who holds the key to the tavern. She will be nice and hospitable as long as you sit there, drink your drink, don't say a word and don't ever have a conflicting opinion. She and another regular got together recently to sponsor three teams for the Beach To Bay Marathon. You would think this would have been a generous, selfless act on her part. Again, she ruined the whole affair. Too lazy to work herself, she forced one of the bartenders to work Friday night, run the race Saturday morning, and then work Saturday night. Naturally, the young woman did as she was told because that's the kind of employee she is. But the abuse didn't stop there. At the after-race gathering at the bar, the owner actually said this. "So and so was there at the race and didn't see any of you. You didn't actually run, did you. Where was the damned party at?" She was quite serious. In short, The Keg Room would be the perfect place to sit and have a few and unwind from the long day, if it weren't for the owner. Maybe in one of her crazy episodes one of these days she will make another rash decision and sell the place to someone more experienced in dealing with people. One can only hope.

Where to stay in Corpus Christi, Texas I would recommend any and everyone to stay near the beach - Hotels on Ocean Drive & Shoreline. There are plenty of restaurants near the water - Surf Shops - So many beautiful views!! Also, a large playground area where Ocean Dr & Shoreline Blvd meet. Great place for couple getaways or family vacations.... Enjoy!
