Located on beautiful Galveston Island, Texas, you’ll find Woody’s Beach Bar perched directly on the beach with panoramic views of the Open Gulf! This is one of the few bars in Galveston actually on the beach itself. Sit in a comfortable Adirondack chair on the breezy patio, or get out of the sun in their open-air bar by the retractable garage doors.
No matter where you enjoy one of their featured specialty drinks, you’re sure to have a fantastic view. Oh, and did we mention that they have live music every weekend? Count us in!
Picture this: you’re posted up at your hotel pool, towel on a lounge chair, umbrella in your drink, sunscreen on your shoulders. Oh wait, but you’re not at a hotel, you’re at the Float Pool & Patio Bar – one of the coolest bars in Galveston! Not only do you have great views of the coast, but you can actually cool down from the hot Texas rays and take a dip in a real-life pool while enjoying your refreshing beverage!
They also have fantastic island dining – although we do suggest you get out of the pool and dry off before digging in. Be sure to stop by on Sunday Funday by the pool or any one of their other daily specials. You’ll always find some fun in the sun here.
We would be doing you a disservice if we didn’t include Molly’s Old Cellar Bar on our favorite bars in Galveston list! This is the best little Irish Pub in town with one of the largest rotating draft walls on the island!
You’ll feel like a true local when you belly up to the bar, start up a conversation with their friendly staff, or even pick up a game of pool or darts with a stranger! We should note that this is a 21 and over bar.
‘Tis the season! Daquiri Time Out is one of the most festive Craft Cocktail Bars in Galveston when the season starts to turn! They feature a Christmas-themed pop-up bar and serve up festive cocktails; Jolly Koala, On Dasher, Bad Santa (served hot), Christmas Carol Barrel, SanTaRex, Jingle Balls Nog, Fruitcake Flip…do we need to go on? Don’t know what these drinks are? You best come on through and try them for yourself!
Not a Christmas fan? Try one of their specialty cocktails, Maple Leaf, this weekend! Made with Bourbon, lemon, maple, and topped with grated cinnamon – it is perfect for the patio any night of the year!
Ladies and gentlemen, we have found Galveston’s greatest hot spot for a good time. Want to dance the night away? Bet your friends in Poker or game night? What if we said you could even watch a Drag show here every single weekend?!
Have we sold you yet? Rumors Bar & Grill is the most fun you’ll find at one of these bars in Galveston. They also serve happy hour daily, and surprise drink specials on any given evening!
