Houston's Top 10 Day-Drinking Bars


4722258.62.jpg
4. ALICE'S TALL TEXAN DRIVE INN
It's the Tall Texan. We don't need to explain to you why it's on the list for day-drinking. We have a feeling you already know.

4904 N. Main, 832-506-0585

3. WEST ALABAMA ICE HOUSE
West Alabama Ice House is the greatest day-drinking ice house we've ever been to. There's always a cool crowd, plenty of beer, and dogs on the loose doing their thing while their owners relax. We dare you to find parking during the day. We bet you can't -- it's that good for day-drinking.

1919 W. Alabama, 713-528-6874

2. LONE STAR SALOON
We know people who have eschewed that whole office thing and just straight worked from inside Lone Star Saloon. We'd say it's totally acceptable for day-drinkers. It's the quintessential Texas dive, with cheap beer, cheap booze, and hodgepodge decor. Basically, it's awesome for drinking anytime.

1900 Travis, 713-757-1616

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.
