Houston's Top 10 College Bars
Cecil's laid-back vibe makes perfect sense for the college crowd. There's a good mix of folks -- certainly not all are college students -- but most patrons pass up collared shirts and dress pants for flip-flops and T-shirts, so dressed-down attire fits right into the mix. The liquor is cheap, there's a massive front porch to hang out on, and the $1 margarita night is perfect to ease the pain of being broke-as-a joke after paying that massive tuition bill.

6. KELVIN ARMS
Beers, beers, and more beers. Kelvin Arms, Houston's only "Scottish" pub, is a hangout for college kids galore. Whether they come here for the Belhaven on tap, the steak night, the frozen Jack and Cokes, or the scotch and whiskey list, it matters naught. The point is they come in droves to hang out in the Kelvin Arms and wax poetic about their lives while knocking back a pint or six, and the Kelvin welcomes them with open arms in return.

5. LITTLE WOODROW'S RICE VILLAGE
This Rice Village staple is full of college kids, and it's presumably a combination of the pretty bartenders, pretty patrons, and wallet-sparing prices on adult libations. Broke college kids need beer too, guys, and they flock here to lap up Miller Lite and jagermeister like there's no tomorrow. Thank God that there's no class on Friday, or they'd be hurtin' something fierce from their Woodrow's debauchery every Thursday night.
