The Branding Iron has reopened in Nederland, 40 years after the original Branding Iron burned down. After the 1978 fire, the building was rebuilt, and since then has been home to a number of fine establishments, among them the Oyster Bar and the First Street Pub and Grill.

The Branding Iron was originally owned and run by the infamous Ms. Viv. Now Heather Hatwan is at the helm, and need we say more? Heather ran the Stage Stop in Rollinsville for 5 years, and she now brings her iron fist (!) and culinary delights (!) to Main Street in Nederland. Her brand is the double H, as it would be for Heather Hatwan.

Stop by The Branding Iron, for food or drink. We will have our liquor license shortly!
