Darkhorse Tavern

2207 Washington Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 713-426-2442

Location Description:

Darkhorse is an anomaly on a street that has recently been famed more for its stiff dress codes and social mores than its drinking habits. But don't let what surrounds DH keep you away. This place fits the hardy drinker like a glove, with ample old-school bar space to accommodate your horde at prices that won't hurt your wallet worse than your head.
