Houston Press' Description

This Richmond Avenue lounge has been a fixture of the old Sandman building for years, with its cozy interior and mid-century furniture providing a warm and welcoming environment. As the glass-shaped door handle belies, this is a go-to spot for martinis, with a specialty menu boasting nearly 50 different variations on the beloved drink and a lengthy list of vodkas. But that’s not the only spirit in good supply here, as The Davenport has a hearty Scotch collection that stretches the length of the bar. This combination of fruity vodka concoctions and intriguing whiskeys provides a yin-and-yang balance to the dim room and its often rock-oriented soundtrack. On a slower night it’s a pleasant place to tuck away for a few rounds, but the small space crowds quickly.

    stout drinks, good music. Check it out on Wednesdays and Sundays.

    2010 Best of Houston® Winner: Best Martini: Try the Bloody and Bruised, a "martini" Bloody Mary that is very spicy while still being drinkable!

  • James R. on 04/21/10

    Great music and drinks Wednesday and Sunday. Stand up comics Tuesday night.

    For those of you who love a laid back lounge with House music and a regular crowd to call your own, try stopping by for Davenport Psycho Sundays! DJ's James Reed and Brandon Silva on the decks!

    Best martinis in town, generous pours. Quaint and eclectic, the place needs more DJ's though. A great spot to sit on a couch and drink a couple good ones. No happy hour prices though.
