There’s a lot that goes into planning a night out with friends. Between picking where to go and getting all your friends on the same page, its not easy. But, as Houstonians, we’re lucky to live in a city with so many options! From Downtown, Midtown, Montrose, to Washington Avenue and more, there are limitless opportunities for places to go for great food and drinks. Check out some great spots in some of Houston’s best night areas.
This Italian spot is a brand new addition to the Houston scene in River Oaks, having just opened at the beginning of August! It is best described as a champagne bar with fine dining elements, so it’s a great way to start off your night on the town. There are more than 1,000 wines, with 250 of them being sparkling. The food is made to be paired with the wine and champagne, and full bottles come with an impressive markdown compared to surrounding restaurants and bars. Their house fries or “pomme frites” are twice fried in duck fat, a must try for any foodie!
The Pastry War
This downtown spot is a two for one, as the building also hosts Tongue Cut Sparrow upstairs, which is a speakeasy style establishment with twenty five seats. While the name “the Pastry War” might make you think you’re heading to a cupcake joint, it’s actually a fantastic mezcaleria. They focus on mezcals and tequila centered drinks and also offer impressive house made tamales and queso. You wont find a better margarita in all of Houston! We recommend the Strawberry Balsamic Margarita!!
The Conservatory is a downtown underground beer garden and food hall where local vendors come to serve up a diverse selection of food. You can look forward to food from spots like Moku Bar, El Burro, Arte Pizzeria, and Melange Creperie. There are different activities set throughout the week like Trivia Tuesday and live DJ sets during the weekend. The draft list is enough to impress any beer aficionado.
So now, take these great spots, and add a few on Washington like Concrete Cowboy or hometown favorite Kung Fu Saloon and head there with all your friends using Texas Luxury Transportation! Party buses are the perfect way to conveniently bar hop with a group of friends while being super safe at the same time! PSA a DWI or DUI is $10,000 – yes, you saw those 0’s correctly!! You can order a bus, it will pick you up from home, and stay with you all night, taking you from bar to bar, all around the city before returning you to your pick up destination, safe and sound. You’re already planning on grabbing your phone to order an uber, so might as well choose a limousine or party bus which offers a much better experience that can even be the same price when split amongst friends. The interior is super decked out with stereos you can stream your own music from, neon lights, cup holders for your drinks, TV screens, and more. And the most important – no one has to be DD!!!!
Party buses are legit the most fun thing for a birthday, especially if you live in the suburbs, and a limousine can easily turn a dull night into an experience you won’t forget. Brand New Houston® has used party buses for events before, and lets just say it was a night everyone will never forget!!
Stay Trill, Spread Love, and Be The Wave!
