Might as Well
It has been known as Mickey’s Lounge and later Robbie’s. Recently, you may have noticed a new name — Might as Well Lounge and Boozenasium — over the door at 8518 Long Point Rd. in the Spring Branch District.
Drop in and you will immediately feel a retro vibe — from the “upcycled” carpet to the juke box to the furnishings. And yet, while the space has been a bar since the 1960s, Might As Well has a modern, updated feel.
