We went with our neighborhood friends. Very busy on a Tuesday night. My husband doesn't like the taste of alcohol, so we challenged the bartender to make him something he might like. I told him what I usually drink, and asked him to surprise me....More

Celebrating our last night in Houston, my wife found this place on TA. We arrived just ahead of Happy Hour rush (4:45) rush and enjoyed the numerous drinks offered up by our 'mixologist' (I differentiate from 'bartender,' as this guy knew his combinations; a career...More

What a pleasure. Lucky too. I arrived at 4, at the beginning of happy hour. Obviously, the locals are keenly aware. The bar was packed. One seat left - I took it. Really fun buzz about the mixologists, and their concoctions. I threw out a...More

This place is legit and they will throw down a negroni like you ordered it in the Navigli in Milano. Most bars in the US have never even heard of a negroni. Very impressive indeed. Also Green Spot and Yellow Spot Irish whiskey? You don't...More

Anvil's bartenders are very friendly and professional. We showed up in the afternoon and the place was not too crowded. The bartender talked to me and answered my (probably silly) questions. I eventually ordered an Old Fashioned. Let me tell you, it was the best...More

I'm a foodie but also appreciate unique and special craft cocktails. This place has the best and most unique cocktails in Houston as well as a great bourbon list. Definitely recommend! The bartenders are friendly..... talented too!

This is one of those places that has sprung up (nationwide) over the past few years that is serving true, craft cocktails. You're not going to order a Long Island Ice Tea or frozen margarita. You should order something you've never had before from their...More
