Hearsay Gastro Lounge

218 Travis Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-225-8079

Location Description:

This gastro-lounge, located in a turn-of-the-century building near Market Square, serves upscale standards like a burger topped with bacon, cheese, avocados, jalapeños and a fried egg (with a side of mac 'n cheese) and fried asparagus battered with Saint Arnold beer. The extensive cocktail menu reflects a dedication to a classic aesthetic, although they do serve vodka, which some expert mixologists eschew. This is a perfect date night place, and if things go right (or wrong), Warren's is just steps away.
