The Ginger Man Pub

The Ginger Man Pub

Boasting what the bar claims is "America's largest selection of import draughts," the Ginger Man surely has a brew to suit you amongst the 68 on draft and additional 140-150 bottled suds.
Under The Volcano

Under The Volcano

Don't miss the "steak night" special on Monday nights, when a 16-ounce USDA Choice ribeye with tossed salad and mashed potatoes is a bargain.
Dan Electro's Guitar Bar

Dan Electro's Guitar Bar

A smattering of old guitars and groovy fluorescent skating-rink stars decorate the walls, and Dan Electro's corner stage has played host to too many local and regional names to count (most often blues, folk, roots-rock and hard rock).

  • Alley Kat Bar & Lounge

    Alley Kat Bar & Lounge

    3718 Main St. Houston, TX 77002 Although a sign above the entrance still reads "The Mink," little inside this newly renovated drinkery feels quite the same. The layout is unchanged, but burgundy walls, low lighting and the soft sounds of jazz or blues now set the tone of The Alley Kat Bar and Lounge, the newest watering hole on "The Island" in Midtown. The Alley Kat feels as though it has outgrown its awkward albeit charming teenage years, giving way to a fresh perspective on a well-liked Midtown nightspot that had deteriorated over time. The Mink used to have an allure all its own, but over the past few years it became seedier and dustier, and the restrooms became more of a risk than a convenience.

  • Barbarella Houston

    2404 San Jacinto St. Houston, TX 77002

  • Bayou Place

    500 Texas Ave. Houston, TX 77002

  • Big Top Lounge

    Big Top Lounge

    3714 Main Houston, TX 77002
    713-529-9666 The Big Top is the little brother of the Continental Club next door and the surlier cousin of uber-hipster watering hole The Mink around the corner. This block is one of Houston's most colorful, its restaurants and music venues teeming with life on the weekends. As hinted in its moniker, the Big Top is heavy on circus decor, festooned with dusty, quaint portraits and signs from that bygone yet uniquely American era of hucksters and freak shows. But that is just a small part of the bar's story. Live music happens most nights the Big Top is open, from garage-rock DJs to various Americana and covers acts playing under a big birdcage in the corner of the bar. If you feel like getting some fresh air under the stars, the back door opens onto the Continental's backyard and the outdoor Pachinko Hut bar. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • The Brewery Tap

    The Brewery Tap

    717 Franklin Houston, TX 77002
    713-237-1537 A state historical marker outside the Brewery Tap honors the building's past as one of Houston's biggest breweries, which at one point took up several acres of what is now prime downtown real estate. Housed in the old Houston Ice & Brewing Company building (the actual brewery shuttered in 1950), the bar has an old-school luster otherwise only found downtown at La Carafe or Warren's Inn a few blocks east. Depending on the season, the Brewery Tap is also a perfect spot to lay low after an Astros or Rockets game. Sharing the building with the Brewery Tap, the Magnolia Ballroom hosts wedding receptions and the like in its grand halls. If you come on the right night, you can sometimes catch a punk show too.

  • Capitol Bar

    Capitol Bar

    2415 Main St. Houston, TX 77002
    832-452-8954 Capitol Bar is mainly a patio bar, with a small(ish) indoor bar tacked on for good measure. It's an obvious choice to just hang out and knock a few back in the great outdoors without having to deal with the obnoxiousness that comes with the patios at some other Midtown bars. Low-key, huge patio, friendly bartenders, and food trucks parked in the back: this place is great. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Captain Foxheart

    Captain Foxheart's Bad News Bar & Spirit Lodge

    308 Main St. Houston, TX 77002 If you haven't found your way to Bad News Bar yet, perhaps you should ditch the crowd your with and check it out alone. And we mean it -- there's a chance you won't all fit in the tiny little dive all at once. That's a good thing, though. It means that Bad News' small space is generally full of people in the know, who are drinking fancy smart-people cocktails like Amaya Old Fashioneds. So go on -- make a new friend or two. You won't be sorry. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Chapel Spirits

    Chapel Spirits

    534 Texas St. Houston, TX 77002
    713-222-8177 Of all the bars at Bayou Place, Chapel Spirits is easily the swankiest, with red leather, red lighting, a semi-strict dress code and a separate party room dimmed just right for private events. The vibe it's aiming for is decidedly Rat Pack, even if the music wants you to throw down with Lil' Wayne and Ke$ha. We especially like the couches lining the windows, perfect for sprawling back and taking in the action around you, even if you are just having a few drinks with friends. Oddly, the black-and-white televisions never show old-school flicks, but if you ever wanted to see Joe Dirt in glorious B&W, you're in luck. Chapel Spirits' one downside is that there is no adjoining patio, which is probably just fine for those of us who don't hate our health and lung capacity. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Char Bar

    Char Bar

    305 Travis Houston, TX 77002

    With its marriage of two disparate services, Char Bar is quite possibly downtown's most peculiar drinkery. What used to be, and in fact still is, a tailor shop opened by Duke Shapiro has been beautifully remade into a Market Square watering hole. A shoeshine booth sits to the left as you enter, followed by a behemoth working counter. The cabinets in the walls are still full of fabric and dress shirts, which, along with the various photos and newspaper clippings plastered around the place, help with the nostalgic feel. Be sure to partake in the bar's frozen vodka or tequila concoctions, which are stronger than they look. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Club 2020

    2020 Leeland Houston, TX 77002

  • Club Isis

    Club Isis

    1010 Prairie Houston, TX 77002
    713-224-5999 This downtown bar boasts a faux-Greco vibe, from a miniature Corinthian column in the entry to the looming faces high up on the walls. At the rear of the room rests the bar, nestled darkly along the back wall with about a dozen stools. A multitude of plump leather couches offer ample seating at the floor level, providing a comfortable cushion for taking in a performance. The lounge also features an ornate chandelier, along with a huge marbled staircase that leads up to a small terrace level and a second, fully stocked bar. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Clutch City Squire

    410 Main St. Houston, TX 77002

  • Coaches Pub (Midtown)

    Coaches Pub (Midtown)

    2204 Louisiana Houston, TX 77002
    713-751-1970 Wood paneling, street-lamp light fixtures and more plasma screens than a person could find in any electronics store. It looks just as you would imagine, like an Irish pub and a sports bar had a baby together. Though sports seem to bring in more of a crowd here than pints of Guinness, Coaches does a decent job at offering Houstonians both. Typical bar food is available for those in need of a bite to eat, and you can expect the average 20s-30s Midtown crowd in jeans and T-shirts to be omnipresent.

  • Copa Cabana

    Copa Cabana

    114 Main Houston, TX 77002
    713-223-2672 Near the northern border of downtown Houston, Copa Cabana is a bouncing Latin lounge. In the spirit of its Brazilian namesake, the music is loud, the rhythms are lively, and the booze flows plentifully. A long bar stretches the length of the room, with enough wells to handle the large Friday and Saturday crowds. The sizeable floor opposite the bar accommodates legions of dancers, as a giant projection screen rolls video clips overhead. A VIP spot in front of the DJs offers a perfect view of the action, or patrons can slip upstairs to relax among the secluded tables. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Dean

    Dean's Downtown

    316 Main Houston, TX 77002 Dean's is one of the liveliest bars in downtown as well as one of Houston's most welcoming venues for burgeoning local musicians. Before patrons even set foot inside this clothing-store-turned-bar, they're likely to hear the Metro light rail rattling past and the sound of live music. The drinks here are rarely light, with a stiff pour the norm that will make you forget that you may have a racked up a monstrous tab. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • The Dirt

    The Dirt

    1209 Caroline Houston, TX 77002
    713-426-4222 Houston's favorite dark, hip and nasty rock and roll bar, The Dirt, is located directly across the street from the Houston Pavilions complex off Caroline. The Dirt capitalizes on music-drunk fans spilling out of House of Blues across the street and Toyota Center two blocks away, to get even more sauced after their favorite band plays. The bar's staff slings drinks behind the granite countertop, and the most popular thing here seems to be the timeless Jack & Coke. The only hitch seems to be finding street parking on downtown's busier nights, leaving you with the options of walking or ponying up for paid parking. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • The Dogwood

    The Dogwood

    2403 Bagby St. Houston, TX 77002
    281-501-9075 This uber-popular Midtown whistle-whetting spot has multiple levels of decks that wrap around the building, but the icing on the beer cake is the upstairs patio. It's always packed to the gills with folks checking out the view of not only Midtown, but all the pretty people hanging out in the fresh air. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Double Cross Lounge

    Double Cross Lounge

    114 Gray St. Houston, TX 77002
    713-526-3423 Driving down West Gray from downtown to Montrose, it's easy to miss Double Cross Lounge, which comes from the folks who brought you Market Square's Hearsay Gastro Lounge. Formerly the quarters of Tasting Room Midtown, the bar is small - tiny, really - but makes up in ambition what it lacks in size. Taking its name from an award-winning vodka, Double Cross has capitalized on the new wave of mixology and offers up an array of craft cocktails and martinis in the $9-$12 range. The bar makes the most of its limited space, with booths and bar-height tables lining the walls for a dark, cozy atmosphere. Additional seating is available on the patio, perfect for watching the nightly drinking exploits of the neighborhood's well-heeled residents as they spill into the street.

  • Double Trouble Caffeine & Cocktails

    Double Trouble Caffeine & Cocktails

    3622 Main St. Houston, TX 77002

    When you want -- okay, need -- your coffee and alcohol fix in Midtown, Double Trouble should be your first stop. Fusing sophisticated coffee fare with sturdy cocktails seems to us a no-brainer. We've been waiting on a place to come around that mixed our two favorite vices under one roof, where we didn't feel like we were missing out on any barroom hijinks, and Double Trouble has pulled it off. Run by "The Robins," who worked together at Poison Girl in Montrose for the past few years, this one is a labor of love. Its location off Main, near music venues like The Continental Club and the boutique shops dotting the block, puts it in great company. Come by and get an espresso -- with beans from Houston's own Greenway Coffee -- and a Mai Tai, from your favorite fantasy island of choice. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Eagle Houston

    709 Franklin Houston, TX 77002

  • Eighteen Twenty Lounge

    Eighteen Twenty Lounge

    1820 Franklin Houston, TX 77002
    713-224-5535 Located only a couple blocks from Minute Maid Park at the corner of Franklin and Hamilton, Eighteen Twenty is a nice spot for a pregame drink minus the roar of most sports bars. Small flat-screen TVs dot the bar, allowing patrons to keep tabs on games while not being the center of attention. This isn't the place for screaming sports nuts, this is more the place for friends to kick back in the black leather chairs and discuss the game in a civil manner. If you're lucky, they'll open the doorway to Joystix Classic Games and Pinball next door and you can practice your Ms. Pac-man skills. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

    Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

    705 Main Houston, TX 77002
    713-228-9472 For beer connoisseurs in the downtown area, there's no better place to taste, toast and toss back a few brews than the Flying Saucer. With hundreds of beers available you'll find yourself coming back for the cheap, fried food and also, maybe, probably, the attractive, ever-inebriated barflies.

  • Front Porch Pub

    Front Porch Pub

    217 W. Gray Houston, TX 77002
    713-571-9571 Deep in the heart of Midtown — or, as some call it, Little Dallas — Front Porch Pub is perfect walking distance for condo-dwellers and those in the surrounding neighborhoods. Living up to its name, the bar has a massive front porch that may have a larger footprint than the drinkery's interior. Heavy wood abounds, be it the solid bar top or the hearty tables and chairs filling the space. Big-screen TVs are scattered around the room, and pool and darts offer something to do. Customers will need some activities, after all, if they attempt to work through all fortysomething beers on tap. Weeknights, Front Porch is a calm spot to catch up with friends or wind down from the workday. Weekends, though, the crowd gets crazier and the bustle increases — like most of Midtown. Steak nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays keep the bar busy, and even with the full mouths, it's still loud as hell inside and out. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Glitter Karaoke

    Glitter Karaoke

    2621 Milam St. Houston, TX 77002
    713-526-4900 Some Houston bars may devote one or two nights a week to the dark art of karaoke, but Glitter Karaoke gives customers the opportunity to embarrass themselves nightly from Tuesday to Sunday. The spacious Midtown venue, across from popular sandwich shop Les Givrals and a handful of dance clubs, is Inner-Loop ground zero for bachelorette parties singing Dixie Chicks and Britney Spears cuts and birthday gatherings raging until last call. Watching guys try to impress their dates with off-key Creed and Beastie Boys renditions is worth all the off-key Elvis butcherings. Glitter welcomes everyone and even has a small food menu, but there's also a two-drink minimum to keep things... lively. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>

  • Hearsay Gastro Lounge

    Hearsay Gastro Lounge

    218 Travis Houston, TX 77002
    713-225-8079 This gastro-lounge, located in a turn-of-the-century building near Market Square, serves upscale standards like a burger topped with bacon, cheese, avocados, jalapeños and a fried egg (with a side of mac 'n cheese) and fried asparagus battered with Saint Arnold beer. The extensive cocktail menu reflects a dedication to a classic aesthetic, although they do serve vodka, which some expert mixologists eschew. This is a perfect date night place, and if things go right (or wrong), Warren's is just steps away. Read more about this Houston bar or club >>
