Famous, or perhaps infamous, for the amount of canoodling that happens on the couches in its secluded upstairs loft, Marfreless has been among Houstonians' most preferred trysting spots for 35 years. Truly hidden away behind the West Gray shops on Peden St. near the River Oaks Theater, the bar is identified only by its blue door (almost as famous as the couches) and no exterior signage.

Great bar to relax and enjoy a few drinks. Very romantic atmosphere and comfortable couches. The staff provides great service. They also play classical music in the background. Very soothing and relaxing.
Marfreless "I think I've made out with two chicks here," a patron says, adding, "not on the same night, though." When it comes to Marfreless, he's certainly not alone. This West Gray-area nightspot is so secretive, only a stenciled black street number marks the door. You can hardly blame the prurient for assuming it's a swingers bar. And while the prurient are wrong (as they so often are), it's only by a matter of degree. Marfreless is a grown-up version of the seventh-grade broom closet: a... More »
