5. Griff’s

A very good place to hang out! Best Sports Bar” by Houston A-List 2015. Way back in 1965, Michael Griffin wanted to open a neighborhood bar. With his love of sports and sports fans and the wee bit o’ Irish in him, he created Griff’s Irish Pub. Since then, Griff’s has become the oldest surviving sports bar in Houston and the site of the largest St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Texas. This spot caters to all people who want to listen to some live music. The drinks are great and the coconut shrimp is excellent. The crowd varies depending on the night, but if you’re looking for a cool place to chill with good music, this is your place.

4. Marfreless

Hands down the best speakeasy bar in Houston. 10/10 recommended! Marfreless was born in 1972 on Feagan Street near Shepherd Drive. The idea for Marfreless began with the owner’s own dissatisfaction with what the bar scene at the time had to offer. His solution: introduce a bar with no theme; there was no television, darts, dance floor, or loud music. Catering to no single demographic resulted in a melting pot of eclecticism. People of all ages, colors, and creeds came together to create a rare mix of bar clientele. Combining a low-lit atmosphere and non-invasive music, it became a favorite hideaway for nonconformists and intellectuals as well as those couples in search of a quiet, cozy spot. Fun and dark place, with plush couches upstairs in the dimmest light possible.

Located across the street from the House of Blues—and two blocks from the Toyota Center—The Dirt remains a popular stopping place for pre-and-post show beverages. It also draws noteworthy musicians (Lady Gaga, Foo Fighters, and Metallica are among the past visitors), looking to relax or host after-show events. Inside, a few booths and tables dot the cement-heavy, no-frills landscape. A circular bar, red and black accents and rock music-filled jukebox also mark the lounge. Heads up: If you’re buying songs, choose wisely. The bartenders have a “ditch” button that they aren’t afraid to use. Expect well-priced and potent libations, including the suggestively-named Rim Job shot, which mixes vodka and fruit-flavored tang. The Dirt is a non-venue rock n’ roll lounge filled with music not heard on the radio or at other bars. A popular pre and post-show destination spot, The Dirt has also become famous for its performer patronage.
