Everyone has a thing, or at least something that they really like and/or look forward to doing. For me it’s enjoying a good meal, overloading on beauty products, finding a hot pair of shoes, and locating a great spot to enjoy an adult beverage (or two). As you can see, I have many things that I like, and this is not even the complete list. With that being said, I’ve recently found a few places in the city that I find quite enjoyable for the grown and sexy! These places offer a cool vibe, great drinks, and some pretty solid nibbles.

Axelrad Beer Garden

I’d have to say this beer and wine garden is at the top of my list right now! I love going on a Sunday night when it’s much quieter and super low-key. Outside on the patio is the only place I’d ever want to be when I’m here. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying anything against the inside, but in my opinion, the outside space with the hammocks, sitting areas with the different sized and shaped chairs, the fire pits, the rotating food trucks, and the amazing view are the main reason to go.

Eight Row Flint

Tacos, whiskey, and beer say what? I said tacos, whiskey, and beer BABY. This former gas station is giving us Houston laid-back swag with a side of upscale icehouse flair. And to say it has quickly become one of the hottest bars in town is an understatement. Their selection of more than 100 whiskeys is not to be missed; if that’s your jam. And if you were wondering, the tacos are FREAKIN’ yummy. My favorite is the beef cheek taco, featuring beef from one of my faves, 44 Farms!

Revolver Bourbon Social

This one won me over with the location and the patio! I mean it’s near Washington Ave., but conveniently located right off the freeway. It’s far enough away not to be too close to the freeway and far enough from Washington not to be part of all the hustle and bustle that go with it. I just need for each of you to stop what you are doing and have a moment of silence for the patio though! Yes it’s everything and then some. And if you are a whiskey lover like myself this little hidden gem will make you smile. Plus on Tuesday’s all their Texas whiskeys are half price! Gotta love the stars and stripes darling.

If you are saying that all three of these places have a great patio and are very outside focused you are right! We live in a city that gives us beautiful days all throughout the year, and especially during the spring time, so why not enjoy it. I for one believe in going outside and enjoying the great outdoors and smelling the roses while sipping on a few adult beverages!
