Lodgeur has picked the best bars and restaurants for you in trendy East Downtown Houston!
Saint Arnold is largely credited for the craft beer movement in Texas, and its headquarters and brewing factory is located in a massive three-story red-brick building, originally built in 1914, on the edge of Downtown. Inside, large-scale brewing equipment is on view, and four free half-hour tours are available daily. You don’t need tickets, but Saturdays are particularly popular, so show up early. To pass the time, settle into the beer hall, which has a full food menu.
A recent newcomer to East Downtown, J Bar M BBQ brings together all the right ingredients – smokehouse, beer garden and music venue. This is legit Texas bbq, elevated with seasonal cocktails and a legit brunch menu. Try the brisket tacos or the wood-fired steaks. If you’re bringing a crowd, you can order a Texas Grazing Board to share. Kid-friendly, dog-friendly and carnivore friendly.
If we could paint a word picture of your experience at Nancy’s Hustle, it would involve creative cocktails that taste like nostalgia, lamb dumplings that you will have dreams about, and vintage music serenading your every bite. Make sure you start with the Nancy Cakes. Reservations recommended.
Innovative, farm to table cuisine, James Beard award-winning chef Justin Yu creates elevated seasonal dishes in a quaint, kitschy atmosphere that almost resemble a Brooklyn style flat, charming yet trendy! Reservations recommended.
