Absinthe Restaurant Lounge

(713) 528-7575
609 Richmond Ave. | Houston, TX 77006

You won't find any of the potent green liquor behind the bar, but this cozy lounge offers a creative vibe designed for music lovers and foodies. The menu at Absinthe is surprisingly gourmet, with snacks like smoked salmon carpaccio and homemade thin crust pizzas.

Drinks are more bourgeois, including bottled beer and standard well drinks. Wednesdays are B.Y.O.C.D. (Bring Your Own CD) night, where patrons are welcomed to play selections from their own music collection.

Food is served until 2am, Tuesday through Saturday.
