Open for lunch, dinner, and latenight in the RMC basement since 1975, Willy’s Pub is Rice University’s oldest and least family friendly student-run business. We’ve made it through fires, probation, and more Mickey’s than just about any pub around Houston. 

We’re one of five student-run businesses on campus. Entirely staffed & managed by current undergrads, we even make it into the second paragraph of Rice’s US News College Rankings article. (Basically, we’re famous.)

I'm trying to pay pub for an events rental/keg/bartender booking ... what types of payment do you accept?

Asked by Anonymous

We take check, credit cards (except American Express), and cold hard cash. 

PLEASE NOTE, if you choose to pay your invoice by credit card, we will be forced to add an 8% processing fee to your invoice. Not our fault - blame the man!  

Why isn't pub open on weekends?

Asked by willyspub

Since we are located on a wet campus, Willy’s Pub is not your standard college bar. On weekends, many of the “dorms”/residential colleges offer beverages for free to students, which we cannot compete with. Come on Thursday to see where we make our money!
