Guava Lamp

570 Waugh Dr | Houston, TX 77019

After several successful years spent operating out of its Shepherd Plaza location, Montrose’s Guava Lamp lounge has since made the leap to a chic, updated space near Allen Parkway.

The spot is open and airy, marked by video screens throughout, a lone pool table in back and a large, horseshoe-shaped bar. From there, pretty young boys can mix, mingle and snag a martini from Guava Lamp’s well-stocked spirits selection or retreat back to one of the bar’s plush booths, which line the walls. Head there for a buzzy karaoke scene on Wednesday nights that often gets jam-packed.

There’s also a free happy hour buffet on Friday evenings.
