Dirt Bar houston, Guide & Review
The Dirt bar has been Houston’s landmark for over six years, serving as a favorite home away from home for Houstonians and international musicians alike. 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. Drawing crowds and artists from every venue in the city have allowed The Dirt to host hundreds of memorable after-show events, including Lady Gaga, Muse, Metallica, Foo Fighters, and Kings of Leon. The Dirt Bar is opened from open From 6 PM – 2 AM.
Dirt Bar features a great romantic atmosphere, cold beer, friendly staff with professional and attentive service, cheap drinks, a good selection of local craft beers, friendly bartenders, great music, a stylish interior, and comfy seatings. The Dirt capitalizes on music-drunk fans spilling out of House of Blues across the street and Toyota Center two blocks away, to get even more sauced after their favorite band plays. The bar’s staff slings drinks behind the granite countertop, and the most popular thing here seems to be the timeless Jack & Coke.
