2015 Houston Pride
| Pride Houston/Facebook

This weekend, crowds will descend on Downtown for the 2017 Houston Pride Parade. Attracting more than 500,000 revelers each and every year, the Parade is one of the summer’s biggest events.

While plenty of booze will be on offer along the parade route, sometimes a respite from the crowds is necessary, especially if there’s air conditioning involved. These nine Houston restaurants are near the festivities, and many are serving up Pride-related specials, like boozy punch, snacks, and more.
