The 6 Best Date Spots in Houston

By Marcy de Luna
July 1, 2014

There's nothing like a little liquor to shed your inhibitions. Here are six places to cozy up on your next date.

La Carafe
The Bar: Believed to be the oldest in town (the building was built in 1847), the comfy Downtown watering hole offers two stories of dimly lit space, perfect for making a move without stares from neighboring tables.
Order: Côtes de Provence Rosé (wine and beer only on the drink menu).

Boheme
The Bar: Wine and dine your date at the Montrose neighborhood cafe and bar. Set the mood by snagging a table under the stars in the 6,000-sq.-ft. garden.
Order: The Korean Barbacoa pizza and Harvest Mule cocktail (vanilla vodka, orange liqueur, ginger beer and apple bitters).

The Hay Merchant
The Bar: Impress your date with an evening at the upscale, craft-beer-centric Montrose bar. The food menu is by James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Shepherd of Underbelly.
Order: Miso-glazed salmon and one of 80 craft beers or a glass of Gotham Project Sauvignon Blanc.

13 Celsius
The Bar: Score big at the chic Midtown wine bar with soft, romantic lighting and an extensive roster of wine and champagne.
Order: Roger Coulon Premier Cru Brut with an order of anchovies marinated in olive oil and lemon.

Monnalisa
The Bar: Gaze up at the starlit ceiling or take a walk on the patio, complete with infinity pool and views of CityCentre's plaza.
Order: The signature Monnalisa Martini and smoked chicken and goat cheese flatbread.

Simone on Sunset
The Bar: Find a corner or courtyard table for some uninterrupted time together at the West University gathering spot.
Order: Bruschetta and Auteur Ophelia wine.
