1515 Pease Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-659-2000

Location Description:

A downtown mainstay for almost 15 years, Echo is split in two by a bar that nearly takes up the entire room. This creates a lounge area complete with couches and a few small tables to the right of the entrance, with a large square hole in the bar wall that allows patrons to order without crossing to the other side of the room. Next door to Groundhall and formerly known as Jet Lounge, Echo hosts live acts at least five nights a week on its corner stage. It's a dark place, but the bar wall's changing colored lights aid visibility, while the metal hearts suspended from the ceiling draw eyes toward the stage. Echo's only drawback seems to be the parking situation, especially on nights when something is transpiring at Toyota Center a couple of blocks north.
