The Rest of the Best: Houston's Top 10 Romantic Spots
We don't suggest sharing a carriage ride like the couples seen to the right are doing, but every couple should take a ride in one of the Theater District's horse drawn carriages. Be prepared for your driver to want to play tour guide, but a firm "You don't need to show us the sights, we really just want to look at each other," should get your point across. Also, depending on what time it is, throngs of theater goers may be flooding the streets in a mad dash to get back to their cars, so you might have a little company on the street. (Just wave and get back to canoodling.)
5. Sambuca's Restaurant
909 Texas Avenue
Love isn't always quiet. When romance requires a party, we suggest Sambuca's Restaurant. Located on the first floor of the old Rice Hotel, the place has live music seven days a week, no cover and lots of dark corners. Great food and good drinks add to the appeal.
4. Brenner's on the Bayou
1 Birdsall Street
Long time Houstonians might have a twinge of regret at Brenner's on the Bayou, the former site of the Rainbow Lodge, but Brenner's has done a good job of restyling things its own way and offering a casual, but chic spot for dinner and a few drinks.
