The Best Themed Bars in Houston You Need to Visit This Weekend

A Story By

It’s time to let loose and have some fun– and what better way to do that than to check out a cool and kooky new bar? Houston has some truly awesome themed bars, and all of them are guaranteed to be a blast!

Tropical and beachy, disco & funk, and classic 80’s… we’ve got them all. With fun signature cocktails, delightfully on-theme décor, and even some delicious snacks, these bars are a huge hit with Houston locals. Check out our list below for the six best-themed bars in Houston!

For a totally rad, 80s-tastic time, you have got to check out Hungry Like the Wolf! This is Houston’s only 80s themed diner and bar, and boy are we glad they’re here. Every inch of this place is full of 80s memorabilia, and their vintage cocktails will definitely take you back to the greatest decade. Of course, the soundtrack at Hungry Like the Wolf is AMAZING, with all of your fave 80s classic songs.

Did we mention they have food? Their brunch menu is delish– a selection of breakfast sandwiches, egg plates, a variety of pancake flavors, and Belgian waffles are all waiting for you. The 80s brunch party on the weekend is a can’t-miss Houston event!

Dinner is also a great time to visit Hungry Like the Wolf. We recommend the chicken fried steak or flat-top pork chop for tasty diner staples. And later in the evening, the restaurant transforms into an awesome bar space, with DJs and classic jams until 2 AM. This has to be one of the best-themed bars in Houston!

For a truly unique night out in Midtown, there’s no place like Unicorn Disco. This 60s-themed bar, complete with a vintage-style bowling alley, has quickly become a favorite among Houstonians since opening last summer.

Unicorn Disco has all of your favorite beers on tap, with selections from local breweries and bar staples. As far as signature craft cocktails, we recommend the BooCockHehe, which combines Deep Eddy grapefruit vodka, Scrappy’s firewater tincture, lime juice, ginger beer, and raspberries. Mmm, so refreshing!

You’ll have to see it to believe it, but Unicorn Disco truly brings a piece of the 60s and 70s to 2021. With vintage memorabilia all around and a playlist chock-full of groovy tunes, this place is seriously far out. Hands down, this is one of the most fun themed bars in Houston!

Disco made me do it! This is the phrase that will greet you as you enter this fun and funky disco-themed bar in Midtown. Even though Wonder Bar is a relatively new addition to Midtown’s amazing bar options, it has already become a smash hit.

What makes Wonder Bar so much fun? The mind-blowing décor, for a start. Disco balls everywhere, colorful walls, floors, and ceilings, and themed photo-op spots in every corner add a splash of eclectic, retro chic to the Midtown strip. Their drinks are also off the hook! You have to try the Disco Water– a groovy twist on ranch water, this drink combines tequila, Topo Chico, and lime in a disco ball-shaped cup. It’s sooo good! You will definitely not regret spending a night at Wonder Bar.

Ready to dance all night long? Head on down to Cherry Bar, where the 80s and 90s-inspired playlist will knock your socks off! It’s no question that some of the best music came out of the 80s and 90s, and no one knows this better than the folks at Cherry Bar.

The décor here will get you right into the 80s spirit, with huge portraits of 80s icons like Madonna and Prince adorning the walls, and vintage TVs showing classic music videos placed behind the bar. Of course, Cherry Bar’s theme doesn’t stop with the atmosphere– choose from a variety of rad cocktails, including the Raspberry Beret. And yes, it’s just as yummy as it sounds. No list of the best-themed bars in Houston would be complete without this awesome spot!

Want to visit Hawaii right here in Houston? We have just the place for you! Lei Low Bar is a Hawaiian-themed beach bar in The Heights, and it serves up some amazing tropical vibes. Just as its name suggests, Lei Low is a really chill and casual spot to enjoy a beachy rum cocktail with friends. The cute tiki décor will make you feel like you’re miles away from Texas– it’s a great place to pretend you’re actually on a beach vacay.

The drinks will help with that too– the menu at Lei Low is so delicious. For a classic, go for the Singapore Sling (gin, cherry, spice, and pineapple). Or maybe you’re feeling a Mai Tai or Blue Hawaiian. For a more unique pick, the Barefoot in the Sand will be your go-to: Jamaica dark rum, macadamia nut liqueur, pineapple, lime, coconut, banana, and tiki butter. No matter what you go with, every drink is served with a beach umbrella. This beachy hangout definitely makes our list of the best-themed bars in Houston!
