Maybe it’s beer you prefer, or a fresh glass of wine. Either way, Texas’ best bars are not only serving up delicious libations, but also great vibes that will make your night memorable. Here are the 8 best bars in the state! 

Peche, Austin, TX

What can you find at this modern day absinthe bar? A finely-curated list of pre-Prohibition beverages and carefully chosen wine list. They also serve up tasty French fare to pair with their libations. Don’t be shy to ask questions or for recommendations—the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable!

What a suiting name to invite patrons in! Check out their classic and simply fantastic 100 cocktails. They keep it simple, sweet and a great place for you to unwind and just enjoy your time.

Poor Man’s Country Club, Rockport, TX

One great thing about living in Texas...our beaches. Rockport is the sweetest small town where everyone knows everyone. And everyone also knows that sipping on a Bloody Mary and overlooking the waves crash the shore with your pals, is the way to spend your morning and/or afternoon.

Lost Horse Saloon, Marfa, TX

This bar is exactly what people think Texans are all about. It’s rustic, with a little bit of honky-tonk thrown in. Little do people know that the drinks and food come at a bargain of a price and the locals as well as visitors love to brag about their experiences here. People usually come here for the drinks and paired amazing live musical performances.

This is the place to be in all of South Padre Island. Cold craft beers, tasty food and an outdoor porch to enjoy it all to the fullest!

Der Daiwel, Fredericksburg, TX

This is definitely the place to be if you are a lover of rock music and cold beers, mixed shots and more! People come here for the entire atmosphere—it’s just the perfect amount of loud. 

Rubiks Arcade Bar, El Paso, TX

Um, YES PLEASE! Classic arcade games and moderately-priced cold adult beverages to pair? It’s basically the best place to be for adults of all ages! 

Little Daddy’s Gumbo Bar, Multiple locations

This is the thing about the greatest Texas bars—they’re almost always filled with not just tasty libations, but tasty bites of food to accompany! What could be more exciting than fresh gumbo, cold beverages and the Texas coastline to view?
