Woodrow's, and it's brothers: Little Woodrow's, are a collective social nightlife institution in Houston. Perhaps the best one of all has recently opened downtown near Minute Maid Park and Dynamo Stadium and near the Warehouse Live music venue. Stop in an hour before your concert starts and relax at the beautiful Texas bar; or grab a table in the beer garden. Watch several games on flat screens while lounging in the insanely comfortable sofas. Unlike other locations, this one makes cocktails to go along with their Woodrow's-standard dozens of beers on tap. This place has everything you need, so stop by after work. -Adam Rosen
Look for the red lion signboard on Shepherd Drive where every hour is happy hour. The Red Lion Pub acquires bragging rights to an excellent liquor list, featuring an array of exquisite wine, single malts and beer drafts. The complementing food menu includes classic bar-fare like Fish 'n' Chips and Shepherd’s Pie and timeless American favorites like sandwiches and burgers. The lively banter, friendly service and archetypical British pub decor make for an inviting ambiance.
This popular Irish Pub is authentic right down to the friendly Irish staff. The old-world atmosphere is nicely complemented by an excellent selection of Irish and Scotch Whiskeys and a wide array of imported and domestic beers. A big-screen television and dart boards make the pub complete.
McGonigel's Mucky Duck is a great little pub located in the Upper Kirby District. Its diners are treated to a menu of genuine pub food and drinks, as well as an ecclectic mix of live music. Sporting a packed calendar, entertainment in the dimly lit cosy pub is always terrific, only matched by their consistently great food and beer.
Central Texas is a relaxing place. If you don't have the time to make a road trip, treat yourself to Canyon Creek Cafe. With such a laid back atmosphere and friendly folks, you're liable to go for lunch and stay through happy hour. Enjoy good ole American classics and Texas faves, like insanely good burgers and fat sandwiches. The choices seem endless and the taste is heavenly. Feel like something lighter? The salads rock and roll, like the Gonzo Garbonzo with plump chickpeas, avocado, crisp sprouts, and tangy feta. Choose from over 30 beers to wash it down while watching a ballgame and chatting with friends. They're open early for breakfast on the weekends too. -Adam Rosen
