Best Neighborhood Bar — the Heights Houston 2013 - Big Star Bar
Whether you're looking for a cheap beer or a good stiff drink, Big Star Bar is the place to go. You can grab your drink — they've got a fine selection to choose from, particularly in whiskey — and head on out to the patio; settle in on an ancient-looking, so-beaten-up-it's-actually-comfortable couch or chair; or just sidle up and grab a seat at the bar proper. The clientele is a mix of hipsters and amateur beer snob types thrown in with guys who know how to hold their liquor and how to gauge the true value of a generous pour. Basically, Big Star is everything a good neighborhood bar should be.
