Best Happy Hours in Arts District Houston

A Story By

Happy hour…the best hour of the day! An hour that not enough people take advantage of. Not only do restaurants and bars offer enticing discounts during this time, but it truly is good for the soul. After a long day at the office (or the home office), it is essential for our well being to get out of the grind mindset and sit back and relax…preferably over a beverage and some appetizers! We have compiled a list of some of our favorite happy hours in Arts District Houston for you to check out after your next business day. Cheers!

📷 Cafeza


The first stop on our favorite happy hours in Arts District Houston is the lovely Cafeza! Not only is Cafeza known for their delicious specialty coffees, but also is a trendy place to grab a splash or a cold one during happy hour! Enjoy the casual atmosphere with your friends, a fine bottle of wine, and their famous charcuterie cheese boards! They are almost too pretty to eat – just be sure to snag a photo for your instagram story first! Also, we would be doing you a disservice if we forgot to mention their live music! It truly is such a great happy hour spot.
