Fire pits create ambiance for relaxing outdoors on cool nights, and whether you're hanging out with family or friends, every moment spent around your fire pit is bound to be a memorable one. While fire pits are relaxing, you should also remember to be safe when operating one because things can easily get out of hand if care is not taken.
Best Bar Atmosphere/Decor Houston 2011 - Big Star Bar
Readers' Choice: Readers' Choice: Anvil Bar & Refuge
We love the black-and-white-tiled floor and the raggedy old couches in their little nooks scattered about. We love the jukebox in all its soul, rap, classic rock and new wave glory. We love the wintertime fire pits out back, and the huge net tent in the way back of the building that recalls some haven where Hawkeye and Trapper John would swill martinis and flirt with nurses at the 4077th, and we also love the $2 Lone Stars, the crawfish boils, the karaoke nights, the bags of just-plucked-from-the-Gulf oysters occasionally there for the shucking. Big Star is arty but not pretentious, just like its owner Brad Moore.
