Top 10 Bars in Clear Lake/NASA

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. ALLEGRIA WINE BAR
At first glance, there's not much to see at Allegria Wine Bar. It's tucked away into a little shopping center off Highway 3, and seems like your typical wine bar. Luckily, a dark, ambient spot with an ample selection and a knowledgeable staff. The owner can often be found hanging out with the patrons, giving suggestions to the novices, and chatting about everything from the weather to various wine regions.

And even if you're staunchly anti-grape, you'll be welcome to hang out at this cozy little place. Allegria specializes in not only wines but also martinis, and boy, do they have a selection of both. But their signature martini, the Allegria 365, is our favorite, if you must steer clear of the vino. Although that would just be absurd.

9. CARLOS'S BEER GARDEN
Never heard of Carlos's Beer Garden? Well, you're not alone; good luck finding this hidden gen by Google alone. Carlos's has left little imprint on the Internet, but it sure has on its happy customers. The beer is cheap, and the crowd has a kicked-back, old-sailor kind of vibe, which makes it a chill place to hang out any day. But when Carlos's really gets going is during crawfish season -- which is right now, fools.

18018 Hwy. 3, 281-332-4550

8. THE DAVENPORT
This hip, modern little lounge sister to the hallowed Richmond lounge is always packed with the water-lovin' folks out that way, and for good reason. The Dav boasts 30 to 40 signature martinis, which always seem to come in glasses that are three times bigger than normal. Even if you're not from the area, it's still well worth the drive down 45. But call Uber or something, since we're only half-joking about those giant martini glasses. For real.

Who even did the voting for these bars? They are all mostly ghetto bars! I bet they voted for themselves!

What about the Cock & Bull Pub on NASA 1? Best beer selection and homemade food in the area.

People venture to bars for consumption of good alcohol with food as a bonus not the other way around. Nobi Public House also has a fantastic menu. Simple. Delicious. Affordable. Nobi's should have been on this list.

Skallywags in Kemah should be on this list. It's open until 2 has like 40 beers on tap, happy hour specials and floozy tuesdays, incredible creative bar food( smoked duck quesadilla, Pork belly tacos   ect). It is the hot spot late at night in Kemah. 21 and up only

I think you misspelled Nobi on there somewhere...

This is a HORRIBLE list!! Lol! Sheesh! There are some great places around here... Granted, we could definitely use more and better, but this list isn't a good representation. IMO

Send someone on a day trip to make this list? I think you missed some.

Cellar Bar is awful, though. Not because its dive-y, but because its just awful. If you're nearby, just go to Molly's. You also forgot to mention Cabo's. Which is pretty great.. but only on Mondays.

My thoughts exactly. Nobi House deserves to be on this list.

@billywitt @barleyvine Although you're both right -- Nobi House is a great place to have a beer -- it was leaning toward being a restaurant before a bar. Perhaps we should have made an exception.

@annaleicht  And Boondoggles isn't? Don't get me wrong, I love them both, but to say Nobi is more about the food that Boondoggles is makes it seem like you've never been to either place.

@annaleicht  The food is an afterthought to the beer selection for me at Nobi... the food is good, but the rotating taps are fantastic... and untouched in the Clear Lake area.
