Stop By One of the Hottest Cocktail Bars in Houston

Sip a classic Manhattan or a rum cocktail with a twist at some of the most popular cocktail bars in Houston.

It feels like craft beer topped everyone’s drink list over the last few years. But more recently, the cocktail has made a resurgence. More and more bars and restaurants are focusing on the art of mixology and taking their drinks, and their ingredients, to a whole new level. The area around Marquette at Piney Point Apartments always has fun places to try new drinks and appetizers, and there are some that have made a name for themselves as the hottest cocktail bars in Houston. Here are a few you can try during your next happy hour:

Better Luck Tomorrow

Offering a whimsical and creative slant on cocktails, Better Luck Tomorrow is a local favorite in The Heights area of Houston. Small in size, but big on attitude, Better Luck Tomorrow pays attention to the finer details. That includes the multi-colored glass panels used throughout the venue and the perfectly planned mood music. Though this vibrant bar does serve food, the cocktails steal the show. The customer favorites include the passion fruit-infused “Long Story Short” or the sparkling “Razzle Dazzle.”

The Cottonmouth Club

Since its opening in 2018, The Cottonmouth Club has quickly earned a reputation for great music and innovative cocktails. The Cottonmouth Club is located in a historic building and is full of eclectic finds, from the kitschy furniture to the throwback wallpaper. The drinks are just as offbeat as the decor. Their house specialties include the “Maybe Memphis,” the “Maybe Mexico,” the “Hate the Sinner but Love the Sin,” and the “Only the Good Die Young.”


Self-described as “a Tiki experience,” Kanaloa transports its guests to a Hawaiian paradise. Found near Market Square Park, Kanaloa sets the tone from your first step inside with a stunning back-lit bar and large Tiki symbols adorning the walls. The cocktail menu is, not surprisingly, very rum-forward. It includes classic and creative offerings that feature tropical flavors.

At Marquette at Piney Point Apartments, all of the incredible venues that Houston has to offer are close at hand. You can also enjoy flavorful barbecue at SiuLap City nearby. Please contact us for more information about the area and our community.
