The 5 Best Wednesday Happy Hours in Houston

Our Criteria 

Drinks: A decent happy hour should include a variety of drink specials. As a result, we chose establishments with happy hours that provide a wide selection of diverse alcoholic beverages at a low reduced price. 
Environment: The majority of individuals go to happy hour to try something new or unwind after a long day. Therefore, we made an effort to choose venues that offer a stress-free yet enjoyable environment for clients to enjoy during happy hour. 
Bartenders: The people behind the bar are what make happy hour so enjoyable. In addition to seeking out educated bartenders at these particular establishments, we also looked for friendliness and assistance. 
Cost: Not everyone has the financial means to blow their entire budget on happy hour. Consequently, we looked at locations that provided cost-friendly happy hour items.

Pros

  • All day happy hour
  • No reservations
  • Vast wine selection

Cons

  • Limited parking
  • Disappearing servers
  • Bland chicken salad

Postino Monrose is the happy hour place to go on Wednesday for wine lovers. At least, that’s what we’ve heard. 

With 5 dollars per glass of the finest wines in their collection and half-off bottles, it’s no surprise to us that wine fanatics spend their Wednesdays here. (Yes, the happy hour lasts the whole day on Wednesday from 11 AM to 11 PM.) 

First, there’s limited parking at Postino Monros on Wednesday nights, so we recommend parking on the street. Although, a good parking spot could take a while to find. 

Once inside, Postino Monrose has a charming and welcoming atmosphere where customers can sit at the bar area and tables surrounding. There’s a lovely outdoor patio seating area available too. 

Since Postino Monrose does not accept reservations, it could be tricky to get a table, but fortunately, we didn’t have any issues when we went. By the way, we recommend snagging seats at the bar for quick and efficient service. 

As friendly as the staff was, the staff at Postino Monrose don’t check on your table often. There were times when we looked for our servers, but they were nowhere to be found. 

Still, the servers we spoke with were friendly and knowledgeable about the selections of wine at Postino—even recommending a few different bottles to us. By the way, Postino also offers beer as part of their happy hour deals. 

Besides their wine, their bruschetta boards are shareable between two people and fillable. Every last bite was crunchy and delicious. 

Furthermore, we also tried their raspberry chicken salad. It was bland, as there were little to no chicken slices on top as it was a mayo-based chicken salad. 

Fortunately, though, the flavors of the bruschetta and the salad mingled well with our glasses of red wine.

Pros

  • Knowledgeable bartenders
  • Extensive cocktails
  • Polynesian themed 
  • All day happy hour 

Cons

  • No food served
  • Limited parking
  • Limited seating

Almost everyone we talked to raved about how Lei Low is the perfect hidden treasure allowing you to experience a Polynesian getaway from the stresses of Houston city life. 

Others claim it’s a must-try experience, even if you’re no fan of cocktails—the bartenders can whip up an equally delicious mocktail. 

For starters, parking was limited and difficult to find, even across the street. So we recommend arriving early before rush hours to find parking. 

The moment we stepped through the door, true to the comments of customers we spoke with, we found ourselves transported to an island in Polynesia. The atmosphere and decorations of Lei Low captured the essence of both Hawaii and Polynesia. 

Because seating inside was limited, we did wait up to fifteen minutes for seats at the bar to free up. Depending on when you arrive, the wait could be longer, seeming that their Wednesday happy hour lasts the whole day. 

The happy hour cocktail menu at Lei Low was extensive, varying from Hawaiian classic Mai Tai to more exotic rum drinks such as the Painkiller consisting of a blended coconut rum, nutmeg, lime, etc. Yes, the price is reasonable, with drinks being $7 all night long.

Moreover, their bartenders are polite and knowledgeable. They can give a little history behind their exotic drinks—if you ask them to, that is. 

A downside, though, is that Lei Low does not serve any food during happy hour or have any food trucks on site.

Pros

  • Dog-friendly
  • Outdoor bar
  • $1 train shots 
  • Variety of entertainment 

Cons

  • No consistent happy hour menu 
  • Disappointing food truck food 

Nettbar is an outdoor dog-friendly bar right by the train tracks with plenty of games to keep anyone busy for hours. 

It is also one of the only bars in town in a historical building. At least that’s what many we spoke with told us. 

Although the happy hour is every Wednesday from 4 PM to 7 PM, their happy hour menu changes weekly, so, unfortunately, there is no consistent menu. 

Still, from the drinks we tried and tested, Nettbar serves up delicious cocktails worth the 

few dollars.

One of the things we liked the most was that whenever a train came by, everyone in the bar was entitled to $1 shots. Yes, the shots are strong, so be cautious of how many you consume.

Moreover, the variety of entertainment at Nettbar appears to be endless.From bocce ball to darts and swings, there’s something for everyone who visits Nettbar to do. 

Even your furry friends won’t be bored because they can participate in the dog run. 

By the way, Nettbar hosts a fun, active trivia night on Wednesdays. Don’t worry if you don’t know all the questions because we didn’t, but the bartender was kind enough to give us some tips. 

As far as cocktails go, we recommend trying their frozen cocktails, for they are refreshing and the perfect treat to cool down after a day in the Houston heat. Their Jack Daniel’s lemonade especially hit the spot for us. 

While Nettbar does not serve any food with their happy hour cocktails, they do have a food truck on site. However, we tried the tacos from the food truck, and they were disappointing.

Pros

  • Unique cocktails 
  • Tropical atmosphere

Cons

  • Difficult parking 

Monkey’s Tail provides customers with a unique mix of freshly made cocktails and craft beer. Although they boast about being a tropical bar, their food choices are far from tropical.  

They serve standard bar food such as pizza, tacos, burgers, and wings—with a twist, that is. 

For starters, we recommend either arriving early or using a ride share because parking was a hassle. The parking lot at Monkey’s Tail was limited. 

Despite this, the atmosphere was decorated with tropical decor, and the overall vibes of Monkey’s Tail were warm and welcoming. 

As half the seating is an open-air patio with large flat screen TVs displaying sports games, we chose to sit out on the patio. 

During our visit to Monkey’s Tail for their happy hour on Wednesday, which was from 4 PM to 7 PM, we tried their signature $6 Chango burger along with their $6 Fools Gold Rush cocktail.

To be honest, their signature burger was simple yet tasty due to their additional sauces, sauce as their jalapeño sauce, and their aioli sauce. The Giffard banana liquor paired nicely with the four roses bourbon in their Fools Gold Rush cocktail, and its extravagant taste complimented the simplicity of their burger.

Pros

  • Rare whiskeys
  • Highly allocated bourbons 
  • All day happy hour 

Cons

  • Horrible parking lot
  • Crowded

Eight Row Flint is known amongst their customers for having an amazing selection of highly allocated Bourbons. 

Additionally, they have a deep variety of different whiskeys from the same distillery for bourbon and whiskey fanatics to compare the two. 

Of course, for those who do not drink bourbon or whiskey, Eight Row Flint also offers $4 beers during their all day happy hour on Wednesday. Which plenty of people raved to us about. 

So, naturally, we had to check it out for ourselves.

To start, parking was very difficult because their parking lot is very small. Furthermore, parking on the street was risky due to the risks of our car being towed, so we recommend getting a rideshare if you can.

To avoid the crowds, we went before 6 PM, yet still, the place was crowded. So we recommend being prepared to wait twenty minutes before catching a seat at the bar or surrounding tables. 

Yes, this even applies to their outdoor seating. 

While Eight Row Flint does not provide any appetizers on their happy hour menu, they do have a taco truck on their site. 

By the way, the tacos were delicious. The barbacoa tacos from the food truck were moist and tender. 

Besides this, the whiskey they use at Eight Row Flint in most of their cocktails is smooth Whistlepig whiskey. They do have other rare whiskeys available to sample, but with a price increase.  

Another thing we liked about Eight Row Flint is that they did not have loud music, so we could hear ourselves talk.
