I think I remember a bar on the same block as Les Ami called The Spiral Staircase. I was taken there by friends in about 1972 and I remember little about it other than its location (for some reason...har) and that I think Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators (?) were playing.
I was driving by there a few days ago, was held up by construction, looked at the building, thought about the bar, drove in the lot and took a picture of the building. It could be the same old two-storey Victorian-looking house, but now plastered. The address is 2405 Nueces, was a Quizno's and is now Fricano's Deli. Anybody remember or know? [wish I could post its pic on here, but not sure how]
