Houston's Top 10 Cover-Band Venues
If you're under the impression that Sambuca is primarily a jazz bar, you're right. Sort of. True, Sambuca showcases a fair amount of local jazz players, but the swanky restaurant/venue in the Rice Hotel building is also home to local cover bands such as FM, the Shapeshifters, The McClanahans and Fuse, who rotate busting out those old favorites a few nights a week.

6. BFE ROCK CLUB
The appropriately named BFE is a pretty sweet little place despite its relatively obscure location on Houston's far north side. But the drive out there is worth it. Not only does BFE book punk, metal, and rock acts playing original tunes, but it's quite happy to host some of the better cover and tribute bands around.

5. ACADIA BAR & GRILL
Part bar, part music venue, Acadia has four nights of live music a week and live broadcasts from Rock 101 KLOL every Wednesday. Besides some of Houston's better hard-rock and metal acts, Acadia also books some pretty sweet cover bands like Bogart. I mean, everyone loves classic-rock covers, right?
