HOUSTON – Here are the Top 12 Happy Hour spots in Houston, according to Good Taste.
Listed in alphabetical order:
Catch their Booze & Bites Social Hour Monday-Friday from 3-6pm. The Carpet Bagger Pizza is a happy hour hit at B&B Butcher's! This zesty pie is dotted with bacon, filet tip, fried oyster, blue cheese and drizzled with a tangy buffalo sauce.
Inexpensive and delicious! For under $20, you can grab a glass of wine and a dish of succulent mussels that will make you smile with every bite.
Happy Hour- 4pm-10pm Mon-Thurs, 4pm-10:30pm Friday’s and 5pm-10:30pmIf you happen to be in the Galleria area, be sure to pop in to Café Annie for some Bar Annie Nachos – Fresh tortilla chips topped with red chile beef, guacamole and refried black beans.
Happy Hour Monday – Friday, 3 to 6:30 pm. Order the Ostiones Asados and end your work day with a smile.
Sun-Friday 5-6:30pm. You’ll want to try the Tuna Tartare, it’s a refreshing dish of high-quality tuna folded with a ginger emulsion, tobiko, radish, avocado and soy pearls.
Monday-Friday from 4-7pm. Go for the avocado toast, piled high with labne, black lentils, tomato, radish, rooftop basil, za'atar and Aleppo. This heavenly appetizer and a glass of wine will only set you back $10.
This Heights eatery hosts Happy Hour every Tuesday-Friday; drinks are on happy hour from 11am-6:30pm and the bites menu is available from 4-6:30pm. New on the menu this month, Chef Kathy’s Fabulous $7 Flatbreads! Try one sheeted with slices of prosciutto, figs, ricotta, lemon zest and honey, or with roasted garlic, bresaola, arugula and Parmigiano Reggiano. I say both are a winner!
Le Colonial hosts Social hour upstairs every day from 5-7pm offering $8 bar bites along with select cocktails and wines. Draft beers $5. I recommend the Cha Gio, a plate of delicate crispy rice paper rolls of shrimp, pork & Asian mushrooms laced with fresh mint and cilantro served with a chili lime dipping sauce.
For our friends in The Woodlands, I recommend Nicks’ Fish Dive & Oyster Bar on The Woodlands Waterway. Every Monday guests flock to Nick’s for ½ off bottles of wine (all day), 50¢ Gulf Oysters and $24 a dozen East Coast Oysters from 3-6pm. I suggest you make a reservation, they do fill up fast!
Happy Hour weekdays 5-7p. $5 draughts, $8 cocktails and $9 wines by the glass. You’ll be sorry if you don’t try “The Slumdog”- it’s a pumpkin bun with pickled mayo, peanut chutney and a chickpea dog topped with cucumber pickles.
This charming cabin is one of Houston’s best restaurants, and a special treat for guests looking for a relaxing happy hour. Happy Hour is Tuesday – Friday, 4 to 7 p.m. (the restaurant is closed on Mondays). If you’re looking for comfort, try the Quail Bites, they’re served with white cheddar organic grits and bourbon bacon gravy.
Nothing screams happy hour like tacos and margaritas! Head to Sylvia’s for happy hour at one of their two locations. Monday all day; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 4-7 pm; Thursday 11 am to 7 pm.
