It's hard to know where to start with Washington Avenue bars. There are a lot of them. And while the trendiest, fastest-growing nightlife corridor in Houston has a reputation for being a bit of a frat house, there's actually a wide range of drinking possibilities. From the sports bars to the velvet rope clubs and everything in between, here are a few of the notable stops along Washington. (Photo: Ingrid Norbergs)

It seems as if everyone out hitting the Washington Avenue bars makes it to the Drinkery at some point in the evening. A mix of beer swigging on the patio and some bump and grind inside means that this bar is simply what you make of it.
Bars on Washington Ave provide more than a fair share of velvet rope and bottle service dance clubs. Blue Label's interior is awash in aqua light and machine fog and the music skews towards auto tune and techno (no 80s jams, sorry).
