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).

  • Leon

    Leon's Lounge

    1006 McGowen Houston, TX 77002

    Under the Volcano owners Pete and Vera Mitchell have revitalized this small Midtown drinkery while maintaining its cozy, dim feel. The alley-like corridor along the main bar still gives way to two ornate back rooms, but gone are the ancient piano and the wall-mounted jukebox. Instead, the Mitchells have collected more than 600 LPs for the staff to spin on twin turntables behind the bar. Local music figures routinely host DJ nights, spinning from the bar's library and their own wax. Leon's rotating drink menu features inventive cocktails like the Green on Red, a rum concoction garnished with red pepper and basil, and Volcano carryovers such as the Whiskey Smash.

    Little Dipper

    304 Main St. Houston, TX 77002

    Little Dipper may not have food to soak away your blues, but they do have lots of alcohol. These local bar veterans, with their Poison Girl credentials, also know all of the ways to fix what it's done to ya, child. Just hop on in there and ask 'em. Read more about Little Dipper >>

  • Lone Star Saloon

    Lone Star Saloon

    1900 Travis Houston, TX 77002

    Located across the street from the main Metro bus station and a few blocks from the Greyhound hub, the Lone Star Saloon is in the heart of Downtown Houston. This means the crowd is made up of aging townies and world-weary road dogs, and tends to be somewhat earthy, though rarely out-and-out unfriendly. Dial up some Bob Seger and George Strait on the jukebox, dip into the cheap buckets of Lone Star beer, and erase the troubles of a long day at the office or on the highways.

  • Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge

    Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge

    1201 San Jacinto Houston, TX 77002
    713-343-3300 Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge is either an uptown bar with a bowling alley inside, or a bowling alley with an adjacent uptown bar. Either way, every weekend the place is packed with happy revelers hitting the pins and the bar until their rental shoes fall off or last call is shouted. Located in the Houston Pavilions complex steps away from House of Blues, Lucky Strike is a perfect place to lounge before or after a concert, throw a birthday bash or go on an awkward first date. Its party options, from catering to bottle service, will help your event go off without a hitch. Don't miss the excellent pop art on the walls, and do keep the dress code in mind - Lucky Strike doesn't go for baggy clothes or athletic gear of any kind, be it jerseys or ballcaps.

  • Luna Mora Bar & Grill

    2204 Louisiana St. Houston, TX 77002-8655

  • M Bar on Main

    402 Main St. Houston, TX 77002-1802

  • Maple Leaf Pub

    Maple Leaf Pub

    514 Elgin Houston, TX 77002
    713-520-6464 Established by a hockey-crazed husband-and-wife team, the bar even comes complete with a small penalty box just like at a rink, although it wasn't in use the night we staggered in. Jerseys and autographed memorabilia are plastered all over, along with maple leafs of all shapes and sizes. Maple Leaf has become a neighborhood staple in Midtown, catering to the young professionals and, considering the neighborhood, the pub's drink prices are actually decent. If sports on TV ain't your poison, try one of the many board games lying around. Read more about Maple Leaf Pub >>



    1001 Austin St. Houston, TX 77010
    832-360-2222 MKT BAR is located right inside Phoenicia Specialty Foods, one of the best grocery stores in the city. It's also not a bad little date place, with enough dim lighting and extensive wine and beer lists to keep you busy in addition to the bar food. All of the music is local, and ranges from DJ sets, jazz combos, light rock offerings so it's not too intrusive. Read more about MKT BAR >>

  • Molly

    Molly's Pub (Downtown)

    509 Main Houston, TX 77002
    713-222-1033 Voted into Tom Horen's Top Ten Irish Establishments in America, Molly's Pub offers Irish drinks and pub eats in the heart of downtown. The kitchen is open late, and daily drink specials include specialty shots and cocktails like the Blind Russian - a twist on the White Russian with Bailey's thrown into the mix. Nine-to-fivers can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi and cheap daily lunch specials from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., or play a quick game of pool or darts in the back room before heading back to work. For the most part, Molly's has a laid-back atmosphere during the week, but becomes more boisterous whenever jersey-clad patrons gather to watch sporting events on the multiple TV screens. The bar, open 365 days a year, also hosts live music from time to time. Read more about Molly's Pub (Downtown) >>

  • Mongoose Versus Cobra

    Mongoose Versus Cobra

    1011 McGowen St. Houston, TX 77002
    713-650-6872 Midtown has no shortage of bars. But it does have a shortage of bars that are serious about their product — craft beer in this case — while playful and casual at the same time. You don't have to dress up to enjoy a Friday night here. You don't even have to enjoy beer, as the classic cocktail menu is equally solid. But beers are still the advised poison of choice, with a rotating list of more than 40 draft brews that range from quirky local experiments like Buffalo Bayou casks to an array of terrific Belgians. The wood-and-metal-laden interior is cool and loft-like, with a Brooklyn vibe that belies its Bayou City roots. Read more about Mongoose Versus Cobra >>

  • Monsoon Wok & Lounge

  • Moving Sidewalk

    Moving Sidewalk

    306 Main Houston, TX 77002
    832-708-6195 This new downtown cocktail bar is named after a band that Billy Gibbons was in before ZZ Top; Billy even stopped by on a recent night to check the place out, according to a bartender we spoke with. The name also reflects the sidewalk out in front on Main near Congress, which has become very busy with all of the bars opening up in the area. Moving Sidewalk serves a selection of wine and beer, but the main attraction is the specialty handcrafted cocktails, like the Ana Nicole Smith, aka the White Lady that finishes as a Corpse Reviver (yes, they went there). This drink is two cocktails in one, as the name implies, with the Corpse Reviver frozen into the bottom of the glass with liquid nitrogen, and the White Lady made on top of it so that the White Lady indeed revives the corpse below as you drink it. Dark humor aside, this is a really tasty cocktail, among many others made here. Read more about Moving Sidewalk >>

  • The Nightingale Room

    The Nightingale Room

    308 Main St. Houston, TX 77002

    This new downtown bar is located on Main near Congress, which has become a popular spot after several new bars have opened up in the area. Nightingale serves up classic cocktails, house drinks, beer and wine; for music lovers, patrons can choose a vinyl LP from the bar's collection of some 2,000 (list provided), or bring in their own from home and the bartender on duty will play it. Nightingale also has started hosting live music on Thursday nights, where the bands play upstairs on a loft above the bar that is normally a customer lounge; the bar even has a call elevator to send drinks up on.

  • Notsuoh


    314 Main Houston, TX 77002
    713-409-4750 Owner Jim Pirtle's iconic downtown bar, music and art/performance venue Notsuoh (Houston spelled backwards) has by this time achieved a legendary, almost mythical reputation for weirdness. One of the employees we spoke with called the place an electric art dive, while Pirtle himself says the space is the result of a marriage between a historical building more than 100 years old with the collection of a thrift-store junkie. Just some of the wonders to behold include old bicycles hanging from the rafters, nude female mannequins turned into works of art, a knight's armor, and an old piano encrusted with what appears to be some kind of gems, remains of a stained glass window, dominoes, and assorted other trinkets. No two visits to Notsouh are ever the same; the place is certainly anything but predictable. Besides the often-eclectic and indie live music, poetry readings and comedy shows unlike anywhere else in town happen here. Not everybody gets it, but Pirtle says Notsouh is one of the least tribal bars in the city, where intelligent conversations can take place between energy-company CEOs, visiting Hollywood actors, hipsters and curious newcomers alike.

  • Nouveau Antique Art Bar

    Nouveau Antique Art Bar

    2913 Main Houston, TX 77002
    713-526-2220 Furnished with close to 100 reproduction Tiffany lamps and furniture pieces, Nouveau Antique Art Bar looks fragile on first glance. It's definitely got a wild streak to it, judging by the cougars ripping up the dance floor with their prey on any given Friday and Saturday evening. This is definitely a great date place, with scattered couches, proper seating choices, and darkly lit corners and pathways. The soundtrack runs from Jimmy Durante to Frank Sinatra, fitting the vibe of this spacious Main establishment like a crisp fedora. Read more about Nouveau Antique Art Bar >>

  • The Pastry War

  • Pete

    Pete's Dueling Piano Bar

    1201 Fannin Houston, TX 77002
    713-337-7383 If you think all piano bars are the same, think again. Yes, Billy Joel's "Piano Man" is the most requested song at just about each one, but few establishments operate at the level of Pete's Dueling Piano Bar. For starters, consider the two pianos - while a packed house sings along, two stalwarts pound out everything from Jerry Lee Lewis to Dr. Dre for a crowd full of lawyers, MBAs and both urban cowboys and cowgirls. The Houston Pavilions watering hole is an exceptionally popular spot for bachelorette parties and birthday celebrations, and the maestros will play just about anything if the price is right. Wednesday or Thursday nights are free, but Fridays and Saturdays do cost a meager cover charge. Take note that the bar is often full to the brim on weekends, so it's wise to call ahead and reserve a table. Read more about Pete's Dueling Piano Bar >>

  • Public Services Wine & Whisky

    Public Services Wine & Whisky

    202 Travis Houston, TX 77002 Located in downtown's historic Cotton Exchange building that dates back to 1884, Public Services Wine & Whisky [sic] does indeed serve up an impressive collection of whiskey and wines, as the name implies, as well as sherry, scotch, brandy, beer, cider and craft cocktails. The whiskeys (and whiskys) are normally served by themselves, but Public Services will mix them with any soda for an extra dollar. In case you were wondering, generally only American and Irish whiskeys are spelled with the letter e at the end; bar snacks here include warm homemade bologna, sweet pickles, and toasted nuts and seeds.

  • Red & White Wine Bistro

  • Red Door

    Red Door

    2416 Brazos Houston, TX 77002
    713-256-9383 You have to jog a couple of flights to get to Red Door's main drinking hole, and that's A-OK with us. The red, black, and white decor reminds us a bit of Alice in Wonderland, which we love, but there's only so much Queen of Hearts we can take before its time to scamper out of the rabbit hole. Luckily once you do, the view from the main bar's adjacent patio will make you glad you ventured out of Wonderland and into the fall air in no time. Read more about Red Door >>
