Houston >Grand Prize Bar
This is THE restaurant industry after-work hangout. This means it's a place you'll find chefs, bartenders, servers and other industry folk after hours. Cocktails are excellent. I love The Repair. The new food truck rotation in the kitchen (food truck owners will go inside the kitchen and make food for you) means you can get grub AND drinks.
Great for groups - you can hang out downstairs with the crowd or grab a seat upstairs in the lounge or patio. Keep an eye out for when they host food truck chefs, too.
One of the best cocktail programs in town, without all the hype. The patio is vast, the crowd is mixed - though often industry heavy - and the rotating guest chefs courtesy of the city's best loved food trucks make GP hard to resist.
Citysearch Editorial Review. Tucked between residences and a quiet park, Grand Prize is a Museum District hideaway for people who usually hit Montrose. Now under the ownership of Brad Moore (also of Big Star Bar in the Heights), the interior of this former sports bar hasn’t changed too much in its latest incarnation. It still has a bar and a patio for each of the two floors, a pool table and an old-fashioned jukebox but now everything is cast in the hazy glow of red light bulbs. Even though the bar is stocked with cheap beer (a favorite among the skinny jeans, fancy sneaker set that hangs here), the bartenders know their way a well-made cocktail.
