Houston Live Music
Houston bars, clubs and music halls have long provided a springboard for a wide range of musicians. After all, this is where Lyle Lovett and even ZZ Top got their start, bringing unique rhythm to a city with a storied musical history. Check out our top 20 spots for tunes in the Bayou City.
Far from the thump of rock and alternative venues, Anderson Fair is a haven for original, eclectic music performed largely by Texas singer/songwriters. The Montrose restaurant/bar was a popular spot for artists such as Lovett as they began to gain popularity in the 70s and 80s. But the tradition continues unabated as AFair offers a platform for balladeers with a unique sound. The intimate space is beer and wine only with a few bites such as chicken and spinach quesadillas.
It just doesn't get more chill than Boondocks. What you won't find here: a cocktail menu, a collared shirt or an attitude. What you will find: good indie bands, a big upstairs dance floor and a totally alternative crowd. If you want to order a drink with more than two ingredients, this probably isn't the place for you. If you want to relive your rave days and don't mind big crowds, you're home.
The Big Easy
At first glance, this dive-like lounge doesn't seem to fit with its surroundings on Kirby Drive north of Rice Village. The Big Easy isn't much to look at from the outside, with its low-slung frame and Mardi Gras colored lights. But inside the relatively small space you'll find a lively hangout where there's always a little blues or zydeco playing. Dancing is a must here and weekends almost always bring a big crowd. Grab a seat on the front patio which looks out on the bustle of Kirby.
