As a throwback to the Prohibition era when bars had to be hidden due to strict laws on the sale of alcohol, speakeasies have found a new light in today’s drinking landscape, adding a heavy dose of mystique to an otherwise average night out.
Houston is home to many such bars, including a mix of tried-and-true watering holes and exciting new destinations that offer a lot more than what you see at first glance. From a vibe dining restaurant disguised as a cinema to a cocktail bar hidden behind a bookshelf, passage through these gateways will lead you to some of the most exclusive drinking places in the city. Here are some of the best speakeasy-style bars and restaurants Houston has to offer.
