With football season well underway, there's no better time to “patio"! We’ve come up with a short list of our favorite places to catch up with friends and cheer on our teams. In order to make the cut on this short list, the parking situation had to be a solid A. Luckily, we live in a city that can certainly cater to this demand. Here are a few of our favorite new and seasoned local spots that are sure to fulfill all of your patio with parking needs.
La Grange: First of all, I have to admit that our new favorite place is La Grange. It's super easy to get to, has a huge parking lot, and also lots of nearby street parking. La Grange has tons of seating space and their food and drinks are fabulous! Cool down on a warm day with a cocktail sipped al fresco- we recommend the carlos danger.
Beer Market: Beer Market is also a great option to frequent. We go there quite a bit because they have a huge beer selection, tons of parking, great bar food, patio seating, and tv's galore! Clearly, this is the perfect place to bring your guy (or dress cute and think about mingling with one there)!
Tasting Room: Tasting Room (we're big fans of the Uptown location) is the O.G. of awesome patios. They have quite a bit of indoor/outdoor seating and they often have a great live music situation. Plus, their happy hour pricing on quality wines and tasty pizzas can't be beat, thus deeming this establishment to be our perfect patio for a girls night out!
Urban Eats: Urban Eats off of Washington is an easily forgotten about patio gem. While it isn’t a large space, it does seem to handle its crowd nicely. It features a great happy hour menu with fries that'll rival Bar Boheme, and while it isn’t a game watch destination, it does have a beautiful view of the downtown skyline. Plus, BONUS- valet parking is complementary so parking is never an issue. We hope that these selections inspire you to take advantage of outdoor sipping (which is pretty much a fall time luxury here in Houston). Pick a day that the weather is ideal, grab some friends, order a round of chardonnay, and head out to one of these four patios!
