Houston's Top 10 Bars to Cure Your New Year's Eve Hangover
As our sister blog Eating...Our Words does, from time to time Rocks Off will be giving your our picks for the top taverns in various Houston-area neighborhoods. Of course, the lines can be porous, but here anything with a TABC license that cannot reasonably be considered either a restaurant, coffeehouse or live-music venue is fair game.
10. MKT BAR
Located inside Phoenicia Specialty Foods, MKT Bar is the perfect little hideaway in which you can drink and nosh your hangover away. It has a wide selection of beer and wine, plus a small stage where you can often catch local musicians beating out their tunes. The music is largely unobtrusive, even with a wicked hangover, and MKT's delicious bar menu will have you feeling all better in no time.

9. SAINT DANE'S BAR & GRILLE
We used to side-eye Saint Dane's when it first took over our beloved Late Night Pie location, but we're well past that now. Not only is Saint Dane's open New Year's Day, but it's Paint Nite! But don't worry; if you aren't in the mood to put on your artist's hat, you can still drink away the hangover with those dollar drafts and half-off wraps. You'll be all better in no time.
502 Elgin, 713-807-7040, saintdanes.com
If you way overdid it on New Year's Eve, we recommend Cecil's as the cure to last night's debauchery. Cecil's is kind of like that comfy old pair of sweats, but with beer and darts as an added bonus. You can snuggle up with a beer in one of the worn old chairs or couches and laze the night away, vowing never to drink again. Well, at least until that stout you're bear-pawing does the trick. Then you'll be up to no good all over again.
