Houston Music

Houston's Top 10 Cover-Band Venues

As our sister blog Eating...Our Words does, from time to time Rocks Off will be giving your our picks for the top taverns in various Houston-area neighborhoods. Of course, the lines can be porous, but here anything with a TABC license that cannot reasonably be considered either a restaurant, coffeehouse or live-music venue is fair game.

10. LOCAL POUR If you're not already a Local Pour regular for the Sunday-brunch Bloody Mary bar, perhaps a little cover-band chaos will entice you. In addition to those Cilantro Lime Drop martinis, Local Pour adds a little sugar most nights with the help of acts like Obsolete August and Swagger. Or while you're there, try the Texas Indian Summer Sour that involves hibiscus pomegranate syrup and quail egg whites. Seriously.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
