Houston's Top 10 Mardi Gras Bars

7. JAX GRILL
Know what's awesomely Louisiana-ish? Jax Grill's Zydeco Friday Nights, where a live zydeco band draws a packed house of folks trying to outdo each other on the dance floor. Add stout drinks and great food to the sweet Louisiana music, and really, how much more would you need in order to pretend you're in the midst of Mardi Gras?

1613 Shepherd, 713-861-5529, jaxgrillhouston

6. RED CAT JAZZ CAFE
The Red Cat's wobbly tables, tiny dance floor and fantastic jazz make it feel just like a little hole-in-the-wall bar tucked away somewhere in the French Quarter. Nothing wrong with that. Perhaps they'll even make you a milk punch if you ask nicely.

711 Franklin, 713-226-7870, redcatjazz.net

5. CLAYTON'S RESTAURANT & CLUB
With all the zydeco and line-dancing, we could hang at Clayton's all day long, especially during Mardi Gras season. Perhaps you should think about joining us, because it's guaranteed to be an awesome time. We'll bring the king cake if you'll bring the Bourbon Street hand grenades.

198 N. Sam Houston Pkwy., 281-999-1500, claytonsclub.com

I know you only rated bars and not restaurants, but you gained HUGE credibility by not including Ragin Cajun! I wish I could help people in Houston understand the literal "bad taste" I get in my mouth when this place was or is listed as a great Cajun place! I couldn't get back home one year, so I went there for Mardi Gras. it was awful and like eating a McRib instead of going to the BBQ cookoff. Your list is good and I applaud you for the exclusion! :-)
