Cocktail Lounges Alvin TX
League City, TX
My Place - Boasting excellent service and strong drinks, My Place, located at [Address], has a good crowd of regulars and a decent-looking clientele. As an added bonus, there's no cover, so this is a good place to hit without blowing your budget.
Woody's Ice House - Happy hour never looked so good. Woody's Ice House, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.
Cheers Pub - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Cheers Pub is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.
Santa Fe, TX
Santa Fe Lounge - Why go to bed when you can have another drink? At Santa Fe Lounge, located at [Address], the party marches into the late, late hours, as they have one of the best all-night parties. Of course, this could mean some serious pain the next morning (or, more likely, the next afternoon.) Don't say we didn't warn you.
Good Times Bar & Grill - Happy hour never looked so good. Good Times Bar & Grill, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.
Garden Lounge - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Garden Lounge is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)
Gold Club Iii - Dress up. Gold Club Iii isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.
Hey Bobs - In need of a quick drink without the hassle of a doorman? Hey Bobs will do the trick. Grab a seat at the welcoming bar and order one of the many brews on hand. The bartender will likely hook you up if you become a regular and then you'll really have your very own place where everyone knows your name.
Santa Fe, TX
Cricketts - True, it might not be as cheap as a dive bar, but Cricketts offers an upscale ambience with a laid back vibe. Located at [Address], it's a good "middle-tier" nightlife option.
Gotta love those cocktails
