When your palate is craving a more elegant sort of libation, the kind of drink that is magicked up by someone with the title of mixologist who does strange and mystical things with various liquors, you'd best head to Captain Foxheart's Bad News Bar and Spirit Lodge. It feels like walking into a speakeasy as you climb up the tall dark stairway to reach the bar, and once you've sidled up to the long gleaming bar and obtained some elixir, maybe the Penicillin or a perfectly executed Aviator, you'll stop wondering about where you are and fix your mind on simply contemplating the infinite, also known as just enjoying a darn fine drink. The bar is narrow and relatively small without much seating, but if you time it right you can snag a cozy booth or a seat on the patio where you can take in the distinctive grandeur of downtown Houston. Either way, you'll leave the place beautifully lubricated by drinks you will probably never entirely understand. It's best to just accept that and enjoy the experience.
