Grand Prize Bar

Houston
Bar

This grungy two-story bar where Montrose meets the Museum District features rooftop access, a pool table, jukebox tunes and a full bar manned by award-winning mixologists on each floor. Cocktail lists are ever-changing and the kitchen is fully operational, meaning you’ll snack on a pimento grilled cheese with blackened green tomatoes or a chorizo meatball sub between sips of an imaginative beverage like the Five Finger Death Punch with rum, apricot brandy, vanilla, and lavender. Illuminated by glittery rainbow string lights, the space is alternately sophisticated and whimsical.

If this two-story watering hole looks a little grungy, that’s because it proudly is. And it’s managed to become a beloved hangout for both regular and industry folks thanks to rad happy hour specials, a large rooftop, and a Jekyll and Hyde-like personality that’s half serious cocktail den, half low-key dive bar.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
