6 Amazing Speakeasies in Houston

A Story By

I don’t know about y’all, but we LOVE a good Speakeasy at UNATION’s Stuff to Do in Houston.  Something about the secrecy and theming surrounding speakeasies makes them so much fun!  Not only do they have a great atmosphere, but they typically have some amazing drinks, too. 

Fortunately for us, Houston doesn’t have a shortage of amazing speakeasies to choose from!  Follow along for a list of 7 of our favorite speakeasies in Houston, and tag us in the photos you take while you’re there!

📷 Captain Foxheart’s Bad News Bar & Spirit Lounge

Captain Foxheart’s Bad News Bar is back open and we are so excited. This Houston Speakeasy located downtown has some expertly crafted cocktails with the perfect speakeasy atmosphere. Captain Foxheaart’s entrance is nothing flashy, and you might look over it if you’re not looking for it, but we promise this is a speakeasy you’re going to want to try!

The Sugar Room is one of our faves because it is absolutely gorgeous with a classy atmosphere. Don’t let the entrance fool you, this place is so much more than a bakery! Just take a stroll down the hall and get ready to be wowed by this Houston speakeasy and their sweet cocktails. 

We love coming here to grab a sweet treat and to enjoy some pretty cocktails, too. A few drinks we recommend are the Staycation, Death by Decaf, and the La Bishon (my personal fave! Add candy and glitter and I’m hooked!).

For the libations,  Daisy Buchanan has a wide selection of wine, cocktails, beer, and champagne.  The cocktails you’ll find here are both creative and beautiful!  We recommend the Prescription Pop and the Tonge and Cheek.
