Big Star Bar

Map & Directions 1005 W. 19th
Houston, TX 77008
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining


Houston Press' Description

Big Star has settled delicately into its surroundings, offering a welcome respite from the faux-Austin digs of Cedar Creek around the corner. The décor is shabby chic, with couches and oddly-shaped loungers throughout, and every now and then you can catch a free indie or blues show inside. The bartenders are old hands at the strong pour, and the music is always on point, be it from the juke or the satellite-radio system. Big Star is a good place to hang out - or hide out - on a weeknight, and an even better spot to host a get-together on the back patio, which just expanded even farther behind the bar.

    2010 Best of Houston® Winner: Best Bar: 1 of the city's most lively alcoholic redoubts. You can disappear in a dark corner, or you can hold court w/your drinking team on the dark back patio.

    If you're going to Big Star, you're having more than one beer: There's a $5 credit card minimum.

    Cheap, no frills drinks. A dive bar at its finest. Great outdoor area that is perfect for hot nights, cold beers and an indoor area with Ms. Pacman and a punching bag strength game. Great beers!!
