Double Trouble Caffeine & Cocktails

3622 Main St. Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-874-0096

Location Description:

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.
