Three Houston Bars You Can’t Miss

Quench your thirst at these terrific spots

Whether you’re craving an ice cold beer or well-crafted tiki drink, we’ve got you covered with the three best bars to visit in Houston.

Lei Low
Don’t be fooled by appearances, because this bar located at the end of an unassuming strip mall is whipping up some of the finest tiki drinks in the country. Though there’s a strong showing of classics on menu (think mai tai and tonga punch), there’s also original creations like the Ocean of Funk, a rum-based cocktail presented in a skull glass that serves four people.

Alice’s Tall Texan
This is exactly the low-key dive bar that every city deserves and needs. There’s not much to gawk at, looks wise, but locals come in droves for the affable service, jukebox and pool table, and super affordable beer. Where else can you score an ice cold pint of Shiner and Lone Star for just three dollars?

Eight Row Flint
With a wraparound bar, community table, and outdoor patio, there’s plenty of space here–making it ideal for group gatherings. Quench your thirst with one of the 16 bars on tap, or a signature cocktail. (The signature Eight Row Margarita, with Agavales Overproof Tequila, egg white, and salt tincture is especially smooth and balanced.) And when the munchies kick in, tuck into some tacos and nachos.
