Marfreless Houston, Guide & Review
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.
Take a friend or two and relax upstairs to complete your post-workday evening. Marfreless features ample free parking, a happy hour special where you’ll enjoy half-price drinks during happy hour, and Trivia on Mondays.
Combining a low-lit atmosphere and non-invasive music, it became a favorite hideaway for non-conformists and intellectuals as well as those couples in search of a quiet, and cozy spot. This is a great spot for dates because the music is not too loud or for small intimate parties. Marfreless is unique in that it has an upper level that is as sexy as it comes. The furniture alone is enough to make anyone comfortable to make out. Marfreless is tucked away behind a building and located next to a nail shop which means there is ample parking in the private lot. Look for the bright blue door under a set of stairs.
