609 Richmond Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-528-7575

Location Description:

Absinthe overflows with lush libations in an unmarked lower Montrose building that looks like an office warehouse. Ideal for date night or a low-key nightcap, the low-lit lounge offers a variety of martinis, beer and wine to accompany signature "Green Fairy" cocktails such as the Hallucinating Melon, Inferno or Hemingway's Revenge. The bar seating is supplemented by some couches up front and tables in the back room.
