Houston, Texas is the fourth largest city in America, with some of the greatest Happy Hour spots in the country. From the prestigious Galleria area, to vibrant Rice Village, we’ve put together a list of the top Happy Hours you just can’t miss in Houston.

Latin Bites

Latin Bites is a Peruvian restaurant located just outside of Houston’s Galleria area. Their Happy Hour offers wine, beer, cocktails, and a fruit-filled sangria that offers just the perfect amount of sweetness. The Kobe Tacos are made with ingredients such as Kobe short rib, mini corn tortillas, avocado aioli and sweet pickled green apples and cucumber. Never tried Peruvian food before? Latin Bites sure is a great introduction to a whole new world of flavor.

For those of you craving a longer, and more alcohol-focused happy our, MKT Bar is for you. Located in downtown Houston, right next door to Phoenecia Specialty Foods, MKT Bar offers a hip environment to get your drink on while enjoying the atmosphere of downtown. They offer wine by the glass and local Houston beers such as Saint Arnold and Karbach, along with other lagers. If you get the urge to munch, don’t fear! They offer a couple of delicious bites as well, such as plantain chips and house za’atar fries. They also offer what they call a “reverse Happy Hour” on Saturdays – it’s basically the exact same as their regular Happy Hour, just at night.
