Old-Time Jam every first Thursday at 1642

I’ve been meaning to write about 1642 bar for a while now since it’s such a cool space in an unusual part of town. Located at 1642 Temple (and technically part of Historic Filipinotown),the decor is simple and friendly with a few seats at the weathered bar, and tables and black booth seats around the interior. There’s an original brick wall along the rights side they had uncovered during the remodel, and gorgeous original antique lamps hanging from the ceiling.

1642 opened up early this Spring after doing quite a bit of remodeling to the 1940s building. The space used to house a restaurant/bar called “Lupita’s,” apparently remembered for paintings of nude women adorning the walls.

Well the nude paintings are gone (are you disappointed?), but you can find owner Liz Fischbach behind the bar, serving up salty peanuts alongside a selection of 4-6 craft beers on tap, plus bottles and cans of other delicious beers, and wines by the glass.

1642 does host some events at the bar, in the past such events included a “Slow Dance” and other such DJ’d events. The next one is coming up soon! The Old-Time Music open Jam night started in May, and will continue every month on the first Thursday. Check it out this Thursday, August 5, from 8:00 – 11:00 pm.

1642 is located at 1642 West Temple St.

Liz” Fischbach (we share a back fence) is a first-time bar owner and took the bar that was once a seedy gangster hangout called Lupita’s with lude paintings of nude women adorning the walls (and is literally 50 feet from her house) and gave it a fresh coat of paint, new furniture and uncovered some of the 1940’s architecture that had been covered up (this space has been a bar since the 1940’s!).  To drink there’s a great selection of 4-6 craft beers on tap (like Eagle Rock Brewery’s Red Velvet!) plus bottles and cans of hard-to-find beers and 3 red and 3 white wines by the glass.  To eat, salted peanuts.  Could not be more perfect.

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover someone who actually understands what they’re discussing on the net. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular given that you definitely have the gift.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

    Howdy, I do think your blog could be having browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent site!

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.

    Thanks for your article. I would like to say that a health insurance agent also works for the benefit of the particular coordinators of a group insurance policies. The health insurance professional is given an index of benefits wanted by an individual or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker will is search for individuals and also coordinators which in turn best go with those wants. Then he shows his recommendations and if both parties agree, the particular broker formulates a contract between the two parties.
