We don’t want to sound clichè, but everyone will be a winner here at Grand Prize Bar. This first weirdly located bar sits in the Museum District, but its interior and exterior are what make it unique and odd. The building has two floors with full bars on both floors, and bumper stickers cover every inch of the walls. Don your best leather jacket and skinny jeans for this hipster-iffic spot.

Anvil Bar & Refuge is dedicated to making the best possible drinks with the highest quality spirits available in Houston, and they pride themselves on being Houston’s first bar that is entirely devoted to classic cocktails. With a list of over 100 classic favorites that everyone should try, you’ll never run out of options, but in case you do, try one of their eight original, rotating cocktails, or indulge one of their craft beer options.

Oddly enough, the name of this bar doesn’t refer to its temperature. 13 Celsius is located in a little building on the edge of Midtown, away from all the hustle and bustle of the always going Houston. The interior reflects an older Italian coffee shop and deli, yet its structure makes it very unique. This spot does take reservations, so you can ensure that you’ll always be able to find a table.

Poison Girl

This place is perfect for the consummate bad girl and is known for its eclectic taste in its interior, cocktails, and art, but don’t forget to visit their amazing gaming rooms, either. This little, unique, and sometimes wild spot will make every guest feel dangerous and edgy. Surround yourself with the hipster crowd from Montrose or Midtown, grab a craft cocktail, and enjoy the artwork on the walls. Bad has never felt so good.
