3 Bars to Visit in Houston This Weekend
By Manuela Domingos
If you enjoy the night life but don't necessarily consider yourself a party girl, bars are a great alternative. They are usually more causal and less upbeat than clubs and other scenes. Bars can be a great location for meeting up with friends and they typically offer great food at a low price, compared to high-end restaurants. If you're in the Houston area, or if you're planning a visit, here are three bars you should definitely add to your to-do list:
1. AvantGarden. On any day, this place is perfect for a night out with friends. This vintage, baroque style is not your usual bar. If you’re looking for a completely different atmospheric experience in terms of aesthetics, AvantGarden, which is located in the heart of Montrose, Houston is the perfect place to visit. Along with a first floor and upstairs seating area indoors, enjoy drinks on the patio, where an additional bar is stationed. And if you would prefer to enjoy your drinks inside, you’ll often be met with a live band or DJ playing your favorite tunes. The venue is a perfect place to experience culture, art, and music. Not to mention, there is an outdoor food truck which is epically delicious.
2. 1919 Wine & Mixology. In the mood to dress up, strut those heals, and enjoy a night out on the town? 1919 Wine & Mixology is your spot. Dress up for a classy night with friends or a date. This venue features 140 different wines from around the world, along with your desired choice of cocktail drinks. The setting is a cross between “antique meets modern,” providing the perfect atmosphere for any desired mood. There is also an outdoor sitting area and a dance floor in doors, where the night’s DJ graces its patrons with music.
3. Hearsay. If you’re looking for somewhere to dine and have a few drinks, check out this upscale-casual pub and American eatery. Along with a bar, this place is a perfect spot to dine with friends and the affordable and delicious menu will certainly satisfy your taste buds. This spot is not your average place, as the setting is classy and unique. But dress up, or dress down the atmosphere is relaxed, bustling with energy, and lively. The restaurant/bar is located in the downtown area of Houston.
