Houston, TX 77008
The Candle Bar is just what it sounds like, a place to make candles and have a drink (or two). What you can’t tell from the name, though, is just how picture perfect the charming little place in Manready Mercantile is.
On 19th Street, in the heart of the Heights, visitors can spend less than an hour with guided instruction making a scented soy candle while sipping cocktails. Afterward, guests are invited to browse gourmet chocolates and shop for unique travel gadgets and bags, women’s clothing and accessories.
Additionally, there are also plenty of Instagram-worthy decor pieces scattered around the shop, including a vintage Ms. Pacman machine, old phone booth, and parts of a Volkswagen Beetle. It’s an enchanting place to get crafty, relax and strike a pose.
Candles start at $28, or two can be purchased for $40. The Candle Bar also hosts private parties for up to 30 guests.
