Houston's Top 10 First-Date Bars
7. THE HARP
The Harp is the diviest of dives, and that's a good thing. If your date is down with chilling with a beer and some trivia here, we're talking long term prospects. You and your newfound amore can huddle up all sorts of nooks and crannies, or hang out right in the midst of the chaos. Whatever floats your first-date boat.
1625 Richmond, 713-528-7827, theharphouston.com
C'mon. It's Rudz. It's basically good for just about anything, even first dates, and especially if your date is a beer lover. Let's hope for your sake they are, because beer lovers make the best mates.

5. LA CARAFE
This downtown bar in Houston's oldest commercial building makes a super-cool setting for a first date. It even has its own (alleged) ghostly resident. Carafe's jukebox is one of the city's best, too, so if you're testing the waters of musical compatibility, send your date up there and judge their selections. Hey, it's a first date -- judging is part of the role-play.
