What's your favourite watering hole?

I tend to like relaxed, pretty low-key places to sit and have a think with a drink. The places that I used to frequent have gotten...shall we say, a new clientelle and are extremely annoying. I was shocked and horrified to see what was once a great bar turn into essentially a dance club type atmosphere.

Anyone have any good suggestions for a nice place to relax and get away a bit with a fine beer?

Cypress is about 30 miles from me, but I just might have to make it out one day and check it out! Thanks for the tip metaltim!

If you find a place in Houston let me know since most good beer bars are crowded, loud, or overpriced. Petrol Station is decent on a weekday. PubHub out in Katy is also chill(ish) as it can get loud quickly.

devinramen, i don't know where you are, but if you are anywhere near 290 corridor, look no further than my previously mentioned rockwells tavern. 150+ beers. it's a bar/restaurant, and the restaurant part usually has families. i've been there everyday of the week, and aside from friday or saturday nights, you pretty much have the place to yourself. Even on weekend nights, i've never been even close to rubbing elbows with people.

happy hour prices are until 7pm during the week, and you wouldn't believe how good a deal you get.

we went last night, I had a widmer pitch black ipa, independence Ipa, wife had new southern star wheat beer and saint arnold weedwacker, all 4 beers were on draft, and we split some sweet potato fries...

wanna take a guess?

$14.

also got to try a new vanilla porter out of nebraska that isn't available here yet.

Do you have an address for Rockwells Tavern? I'm out at 290/Telge at least 3 days a week and will def stop in for a nice cold beer!

Tried Rockwell's Sunday and was way disappointed. See my review under best burger places or beer bars. I was expecting a whole lot more.

Can't go wrong with any of the Sherlock's for an all round good time. It is an impossible question to get wrong as different folks have their own take on what is "fun." I'm more the type to like a laid back atmosphere, good beer and a few games to keep you busy. The occasional good band is a bonus. If you find these thing appealing Houston has much to offer and my advice is to experiment by going to different parts of town. Stags Head is good. McGonigals is good. Ginger Man, Kelvin Arms and Hans Beer garden are all very good.
