Nothing beats Houston hospitality — it’s the charm of the south mixed with oil tycoon eccentricity steeped in a rich, multicultural melting pot. Plus, we have queso and margaritas. So many amazing margaritas. It should come as no surprise that a city with international food buzz also has great bars. Just ask The James Beard Foundation, which has nominated at least one Houston bar or wine program for nine years straight. The fact that Houston is so large geographically is actually to your advantage. Throw a dart, walk a block, hop on the Metro rail, and in no time, you’ll find a bar nearby that’s exactly your speed.
From romantic date night cocktails to solo adventures to catch the game at a sports bar, Houston nightlife comes in all shapes and sizes. We’ve got budget-friendly dive bars with drink specials aplenty, historic lounges downtown that are practically frozen in time, hookah bars with killer snacks, and award-winning cocktail bars complete with charcuterie plates and happy hour prices. What are you in the mood for tonight?
