Best Of Houston® 2022: Best Bar – Midtown

Best Bar – Midtown: Holman Draft Hall

Most bars have the typical considerations of interesting and plentiful drink options or comfortable and convenient seating. From here, you’re likely to find a good drink special or a gregarious bartender. So deciding which is best just depends on the vibe of the place. Holman Draft Hall has all the notable hallmarks of a solid drink, like the 100 craft beer taps on its wall, a full-service bar, and hearty pub food. What makes this your best option in Midtown is that it’s not a “one vibe” bar.

Decor is stylish — lots of glass and interesting tiles. Very high end. But, it’s also rustic, with wood, aged iron, and high ceilings throughout. Almost lodge-like. There is an air-conditioned space with a cozy balcony where visitors host parties and also plenty of outdoor seating with picnic tables and swings for more casual get-togethers. You can choose a melted burger or patty or reserve a “brunchutry board” to categorize things and satisfy your group’s hunger. Join in the fun or drop by the first Friday of any month for the bar’s showcase of local art. Want a little elegance in your evening? No problem. Fancy a relaxing afternoon alone or with friends? They got you. Holman Draft Hall is spacious and the thoughtful approach to using this space means you can choose the mood of the bar every time you visit.
