Day four of the Eater Awards, an annual celebration of Houston’s finest culinary talent and best restaurants, has arrived. Eater readers have already cast their ballots in three categories — Chef of the Year, Restaurant of the Year, and Design of the Year — and now it’s time to vote for the city’s best new cocktail bar.
Here’s how it works: All 24 Eater cities and our big sister Eater.com will award prizes in multiple categories, including Chef of the Year, Bar of the Year, and Restaurant of the Year. In each category, Eater staff will choose an editor’s choice winner, and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner. Editor’s choice winners will receive one of Eater’s iconic tomato can trophies, and reader’s choice winners will score a lifetime of bragging rights.
Up for Bar of the Year in Houston this year are Montrose newcomer Present Company, honky-tonk Goodnight Charlie’s, the Cottonmouth Club in Downtown, and rum destination High & Dry.
Without further ado, it’s time to vote. Cast your ballot below, and note that the polls will be open for 24 hours. Voting will be strictly monitored to prevent any funny business.
