The 5 Best Happy Hours in The Heights

If you love happy hour as much as we do, you'll love this new series. We're taking a look at the best happy hours in town, 'hood by 'hood. To narrow it down, we're focusing on the spots with the best deals on not only drinks, but eats, too. From upscale eateries serving bar bites and half-priced wine to dives with cheap beer and burgers, we've got it all. See the complete list at the end of this post

This week, we're moving on to the bar and restaurant packed hood of The Heights.

Note: For the purposes of this list, "the Heights" is defined as south of Loop 610, east of North Shepherd, north of Katy Freeway and west of 45. That means standouts like Rainbow Lodge falls outside the borders. But look out; it just make another neighborhood's list.

Honorable mention: Half-price wine at Down House; bar bites at Glass Wall; and $7.50 pitchers plus daily food specials at Christian's Tailgate on White Oak.
