Houston's Top 10 Day-Drinking Bars


5DII_7670A.jpg
7. D&T DRIVE INN D & T
Any bar in the Heights that opens at noon and delivers such a purdy frozen sangria/shandy mix is good with us. But D & T also touts a badass beer menu and a sweet, so we just might move in and never leave.

6. CHULA'S SPORTS CANTINA
Um, have you seen this place? It's super soccer-centric and full of cute girls in very tiny apparel. There's really not a time when it's empty. Boatloads of dudes are always hanging out by the massive bar, downing cervezas by the dozen. But ladies, don't let the idea of soccer and pretty waitresses turn you off, though. It's totally chick-friendly, and loads of day-drinking fun. We know for a fact -- we've been there too many times to count.

5. THE STAG'S HEAD
The laid-back Stag's Head won't judge you for day-drinking one bit, just encourage your debauchery with their nice beer list and awesome patio. What's that you say? You can't drink because you've got work deadlines and other important stuff to do? They've got wi-fi, so stop with the excuses and order a beer. You'll have a hard time saying no to the specials on pitchers. It's like the entire place was made to meet your day-drinking needs.

While the bickering is always entertaining, you guys nailed it with Alabama Ice House and Rudyards. I really miss the Ale House, though.

Good. Y'all go there, I'll be at Shiloh.

Fun stuff, Ms. Leicht. My old man opened his Market Street joint up at 07:00 Monday-Saturday and did brisk business before the oil bust took out his clientele. I don't drink but I populate my stories with neighborhood bars like these.

To chrisasmithe:

Since several of these joints predate the townhomes by like a decade, I'm gonna say nah. Also, you won't see a limo full of dude-bros/girls pull up to these joints either which is hte best indicator of a dbar *cough*pubfiction*cough*escobar*cough*. 

But, hey, why don't you tell us which are the best day-drinking bars?

More like Top Ten Douchey Bro Dude Bars Filled With People Who Buy The Shitty Townhomes That Are Ruining Our Neighborhoods. Go back to the suburbs, Angela. We don't want you or those people here.

@chrisasmithe Alice's Tall Texan? Come on, dude. Be serious. That place is the exact opposite of a "Bro Dude" Bar. Same with Rudz. I don't think you've been to these places, honestly.

@chrisasmithe OK, I'm intrigued by your analysis: Are all the bars on here -- or even the majority -- really "Douchey Bro Dude Bars"? I eagerly await your response.

It's Angelica, for what it's worth. Perhaps you need some coffee this morning.

Sorry, I yawned so hard after the first three that I couldn't keep going. All of the go back to the suburbs comments remain. I don't know you Craig but I still suspect The Woodlands or its equivalent.

You are offended because you live in one of those new charmless things, don't you. Graduate from Whitelands High School?

@chrisasmithe I was born and raised and still reside inside the 610 loop so I know what a "Bro Douche" looks like, and you sir are a Bro Douche.....

@chrisasmithe I'm sorry -- I mistook you for someone who might have wanted to have an intelligent debate. My bad. I'll just move along.
