Bars in Houston

Select Local Merchants

Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

Patrons of The International Office can enjoy a fusion of a classic American sports bar and a traditional South American grill. The eatery and bar delivers colorful cocktails and ice cold beers alongside burgers, tacos, and kebab-like parrilladas prepared by chef Luis. For a kaleidoscopic tour of the menu, eaters can order the sampler plate, which provides a selection of flavors from across the menu that people might not normally think to try together.

The sports bar offers plenty of specials, usually centered around televised sporting events. In fact, the bar is so serious about providing good drink deals that it is already advertising specials that will run during the 2014 World Cup, which awards the winning country a trophy-vessel large enough to give all of its citizens a sip of victory.

The Richmond Arms Pub

“Richmond Arms Pub isn’t a place where they’ll be happy to put a game on for you,” the Houston Press remarked about this European football bar in its “Houston’s Top 10 Sports Bars” feature. “It’s a place where, when necessary, they open up at […] dawn for fans who are an ocean removed from their favorite teams.” Indeed, sports are the centerpiece at Richmond Arms Pub, and soccer reins supreme. One look at the TV sports schedule should make that clear, though devotees of American sports can also get their fill since baseball games and flag-eating competitions also flash across the TV screens. Fans of all stripes can rejoice together over the extensive beer list, which includes brews from England, Germany, Holland, and the U.S., and over the menu of pub favorites that includes everything from buffalo wings and burgers to English specialties such as bangers and mash.

In 2005, Justin Whitfield unveiled his first-ever restaurant, The End Zone Sports Bar & Grill. Business initially boomed, but when Justin invited his pal Shawn Machado to co-run the place, the duo's contentious relationship threatened to end the bar for good. That's when Jon Taffer and Bar Rescue stepped in to calm heated tempers with tough love, rather than just spraying the entire staff with a fire extinguisher.

In the process, Jon Taffer helped transform the struggling End Zone into Houston Sports Hub, which earned more than $2,000 in its first hour. True to its name, the bar's sport theme stretches to every inch of its d?cor, from baseball-bat door handles and stadium-style seating to big games being shown on myriad flat-screen TVs. The menu also specializes in sporting-event favorites, from franks smothered in sauerkraut and spicy brown mustard to cocktails made with orange-flavored vodka and cotton candy.

Gray's Public House specializes in quenching guests? thirst with beer and cocktails. The ever-growing selection of canned beer is displayed on a ledge behind the bar, with more than 50 options from such craft breweries as Big Sky and Avery. Handcrafted cocktails are created with housemade syrup and served in the traditional pewter goblet. The gastropub?s menu packs its own flavorful punch with shareable plates of bacon-jalape?o roasted peanuts and housemade potato chips dusted with salted garlic butter. The popular pub burger, which uses beef from a local farmer, is formed into a patty and topped with sharp cheddar, bacon, a fried egg, and chili.

On Friday and Saturday nights, a DJ spins tunes as guests relax on white metal stools that flank the wood-topped bar. The pub?s concrete floors and walls covered in subway tiles and whitewashed wood planks channel a rustic-industrial aesthetic.

In 2010, two neighbors ? Troy Smith and Ryan Baird ? sat around sipping their favorite beverages when a startling idea occurred to them; maybe they could make better drinks. Taking inspiration from their great state's history, they founded Yellow Rose Distilling

before the year was out, but took two years to perfect their recipes and navigate legal waters before opening their distillery in Houston. Their carefully crafted drinks have drawn attention; they recently took home a Best in Class Award at the American Distilling Institute for their Yellow Rose Outlaw Bourbon, and their Straight Rye Whiskey earned the Double Gold at San Francisco Artisan Spirits. They invite visitors to come tour their facilities, taste their creations, and help them come closer to upgrading the distillery with a new tasting room.
