The Sam Bar
Houston, TX 77002
Houston Press' Description
Everything about the Sam Bar just feels like an authentic hotel bar of old, minus the fancy new crystals that are hanging from the ceiling and the recently reupholstered lounge chairs (something about the slightly grizzled bar had to match the swanky, colorful Alden Hotel in which it's housed). It even serves great old classic cocktails like the Pegu Club, as well as a very good selection of beer (local craft brews and otherwise).
Tips from foursquare
The Sam Bar is the result of a rebranding of the Alden in 2010, and it designed to hearken back to the hotel's early days as the Sam Houston Hotel.
