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.

  • 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.

  • Buddha Bar

    812 Capitol St. Houston, TX 77002-2902

  • 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 Capitol Bar >>

  • 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 Captain Foxheart's Bad News Bar & Spirit Lodge >>

  • 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 Char Bar >>

  • 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.

  • Dean

    Dean's Downtown

    316 Main Houston, TX 77002 Dean's Downtown's latest makeover occurred in November 2013, when its current owners transformed the former dive bar and full-time live-music venue into a more traditional bar that celebrates Houston's history and the history of the downtown building that houses it, which is more than 100 years old. This change is just one of many to occur throughout the history of the space, which started out as Liam's Department store and later became Dean's Credit Clothing, to which the old neon sign outside can attest. Even ledger book from the '40s that Dean used to keep track of his customers' accounts is on display. Some of the bar's new drinks, such as the Woolworth or Penny's Nichol, recall other long-closed downtown Houston businesses. Reclaimed wood more than a century old from the site that is now Saint Arnold's Brewery was used to make the bar top, the original bricks from 1893 still stand behind the bar, and the opposite wall has been covered with cedar from an old Texas barn; black-and-white photos of downtown Houston dating as far back as 1928 adorn the walls and outside front patio area. Relics from Dean's Credit Clothing are on display, like pairs of old shoes from the '70s still in their original boxes, and what was Houston's first electric elevator in Houston is now a tiny lounge. Live music, usually jazz or solo musicians with acoustic guitars, is still played on Sunday nights. Five-dollar pizzas and other food can be ordered and brought over from Mia Bella restaurant next door. Read more about Dean's Downtown >>

  • 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 The Dirt >>

  • Dive Lounge

    410 Bagby St. Houston, TX 77002-1510

  • 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 The Dogwood >>

  • 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 Double Trouble Caffeine & Cocktails >>
