Houston's 10 Best Bars on Main Street

Main Street in Houston has a rich, interesting history and in the last several years lots of new bars have been opening up down there, in addition to some of the city's more perennial spots. The Madness on Main Street Festival is coming up on next Saturday and will feature lots of local bands playing at Continental Club and nearby venues.

With Houston's METRORail, you can take the train down Main to all of the spots on our list in a fun bar-hopping excursion one night with friends, or just pick your favorite spot to visit and chill out in all night long. However you get down there and whatever bars you decide to check out, it's kind of fun to listen to Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band's "Mainstreet" as you travel down Main. Trust us, just do it.
