Welcome to the newly-revamped Eater Houston Cocktail Heatmap. While established drinking institutions like Anvil Bar & Refuge and Moving Sidewalk are well-known for their top-notch cocktails, this map is intended to showcase newer spots, restaurants with great drinks, and watering holes with exciting (and boozy) new offerings.
In recent months, a slew of great new cocktail bars have opened their doors in Houston. In EaDo, curious drinkers will find the newly-opened (and massive) Steampunk-inspired spot Chapman & Kirby, which has quickly become one of the city’s buzziest new spots. Also new to the Heatmap is Roka Akor, which brings a solid program of shochu made in house to the scene.
As such, you really have no excuse to stick with your safe neighborhood bar. Venture out to one of these 13 piping-hot drinking establishments this weekend, and be sure to imbibe responsibly — or at least call an Uber.Read More
