Houston Historic Downtown Pub Tour

Walking Tours in Houston

Walking Tours in Houston

The Houston Historic Downtown Pub Tour features four bars in the old Town of Houston. Locations vary each night, but always start at The Cellar in the basement of Georgia’s Market, a restaurant, grocery store, and bar inside the former home of an 1895 gambling parlor.

Walk past 1880s buildings housing Pepper Jack’s (“Serious Burrito’s and More”) and Frank’s Pizza (hand-tossed pizza by the slice) on your way to Market Square Park. Stroll through this small urban gem, complete with Niko Niko’s Greek kitchen, a dog park, a garden in memory of a victim of Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, a sculpture by James Surls, and remnants from old Houston buildings and sidewalks.

The park is ringed by bars and pubs inside historic buildings, including La Carafe, an award-winning, cash-only wine bar inside the Kennedy Bakery Building (1861); the Hearsay Gastro Lounge, a chic bar and restaurant sporting a crystal chandelier inside an 1889 building almost destroyed by a fire in 1989; Char-Bar, a tailor shop that becomes a bar at night; Warren’s Inn, a local hangout with a jukebox featuring tunes from the fifties, and Market Square Bar & Grill, whose founder says, “It’s every Texan’s right to hold a burger in one hand and a beer in the other.”

A block over on Main Street, step inside the 1912 Union National Bank Building, now home of the Hotel Icon, a Marriott Autograph Hotel. Check out the bank vault behind the front desk before heading over to the Line & Lariat Bar, where you can sip elegant designer drinks perched on cowhide seats.

After stops inside four bars, a comfy hotel might be a good way to end a perfect evening.

Highlights

  • Market Square Park, former home of Houston’s first four city halls
  • A tailor shop that becomes a bar at night
  • A former strip club where you can still order strong drinks
  • Tales of the bar manager who haunts Houston’s oldest commercial building

Set off from Georgia's Market and Walk up Texas Avenue to the Post-Rice Lofts, where you can sip coffee or wine from Minuti’s bar inside the historic 1913 lobby.Listen to stories of Houston’s early history: from the suicide of the last president of the Republic of Texas, to John F. Kennedy’s last day.

Leave the bar behind and head down Main Street, walking through the downtown historic district to reach Commerce Avenue. Choose which bars you want to stop at along the way, from atmospheric Irish pubs to a neighborhood bar tucked inside an Art Deco building, from the retro-hippie notsuoH (Houston spelled backwards) to the trendy Voice bar inside Hotel Icon. After trying the local specialties, head to Commerce Avenue to listen to ghost stories at the bar of a 1912 building that houses Houston’s Spaghetti Warehouse. Walk up a grand staircase to the second floor, where you’ll see a replica of an old Houston trolley, a funeral cabinet and the ladies room that is reputed to be the most haunted room in downtown Houston’s most haunted building.

Leave the ghosts behind as you stroll up Travis Street to Market Square Park, known for its old buildings that today house a wealth of bars and pubs. After calling by a few, stroll to Louisiana Street, home to BBs, a Cajun bar and restaurant on the site of a pecan grove where Texas president Sam Houston once pow-wowed with the Cherokee. End this Houston tour with an exclusive visit to the basement of the Lancaster Hotel to see photos of the Stage Canteen, a circus-themed bar and dance hall where celebrities entertained soldiers during World War II. This is an ideal place to end this pub crawl after a night discovering the bars, history and legends of downtown Houston.
