First off, Public Services Wine & Whisky has the best happy hour for wine lovers. Between 4 and 6:30 p.m., every wine by the bottle is half price. What makes Public Services truly exceptional, though, is the range of its wine list. You'll find an extensive list of sherry and other fortified wines in Houston. The other wine options constitute a trip all over the world, with red and white selections from pretty much everywhere: Spain, Germany, France, Australia and, of course, the good old U.S. of A. There are always at least a dozen sparking wines for celebrating too. The equally ambitious whisky selection means two entirely different types of drinkers can finally imbibe together in peace.
