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.

In America, playing sports is almost as much of a national pastime as eating while watching other people play sports. Sam's Bar & Grill facilitates the latter with TVs aplenty, a menu of comfort food, and frosty pint glasses. While the bartenders serve up draft beer and margaritas, the chefs cook burgers and foot-long hot dogs atop the grill. They also whip up a number of shareable appetizers, including homemade onion rings and the eatery?s signature plate of fries, topped with bacon bits, gooey cheese, jalapenos, chives, and ranch dressing.
On select nights, however, the TVs defer to DJs. From their high-tech rig in the corner of the bar, they compose mixes and encourage guests to dance, or at least play rhythmic games of Duck, Duck, Goose.
Despite its name, there’s nothing usual about The Usual. For starters, women rule the roost here, and their preferred drinks tend to be stiff, not sweet. The pub’s bartenders are known for their buoyant personalities, and they won’t hesitate to show off their tattoos or suggest a favorite craft beer or cocktail. And, as one of Houston’s foremost lesbian-friendly bars, The Usual hosts an array of colorful events headlined by Tuesday’s famous Steak Night, when visiting ribeyes drink free of charge.
Since 1998, Bronx Bar has been attracting young, party-scene people with drinks and music that inspire festive moods. The club, like the White House after visiting hours, boasts an upbeat, club-like ambiance, earning itself the Houston A-List's Best Trendy Bar award in 2009. Twinkles of light dance throughout the mostly dark space, emanating from fixtures underneath the bar and reflecting off the shiny silver ceiling tiles overhead. A mural resembling an urban skyline gives the space a hip, modern vibe.
In October of 2013, the remodeled and reinvented Westfield By The Railroad finally opened its doors to excited diners. Owner Rachelle Sitton welcomes this 21-and-over crowd to enjoy classic sports-bar-style grub and cold brews on her eatery's expansive patio after a rough day at the office or local sandpaper factory. They can also unwind by watching the big game on a 120-inch projection screen.
