There hasn’t been a better time to knock one back in America since, well, right before Prohibition knocked us all back into the Stone Age. Here in Houston, we love drinking almost as much as we love eating, and you know how much we love eating. And just as with our spirited restaurant scene, there’s a Bayou City bar for every type of bacchanalian, whether your preference runs to longnecks at an ice house or long drinks at a cozy cocktail bar. In fact, our bar scene is so crowded these days, no self-respecting drinker would leave home without a guide, and—well, wait, we have one right here! Behold, the 10 best bars in all of Houstonia, plus 27 more definitive drinkeries in eight categories—perfect for date night, trivia night, and every night in between. Salud!
