Situated deep in Houston's East End, the D&W Lounge is a true dive bar safely tucked away from any sort of hustle or bustle. It relies on nothing but familiarity and salt-of-the-Earth charisma to get by, and does so in extraordinary fashion. The building has been around since the '40s, with little more having been changed than the light bulbs. One of the things that helps this particular space rise above the hangout flotsam though is its crowd. We love the lava lamps, deer heads, and random pictures dotting the tables and walls. It's hard to not steal something on the way out.
