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.
