Brewery
$
“Saint Arnold is largely credited for the craft beer movement in Texas, and its headquarters and brewing factory is located in a massive three-story red-brick building, originally built in 1914, on the edge of Downtown. Inside, large-scale brewing equipment is on view, and four free half-hour tours are available daily. You don't need tickets, but Saturdays are particularly popular, so show up early. To pass the time, settle into the beer hall, which has a full food menu. 2000 Lyons Ave, Houston, TX 77020”

Coffee Shop
$
“Situated in what was once a large, Westheimer-fronting home, Agora is a Greek-owned coffee shop and meeting place boasts a mix of European ex-pats and low-key neighborhood regulars. There are plenty of tables, chairs, couches and conversation-starting tchotchkes scattered throughout. Up the steep staircase, cozy seating areas and a large-screen TV offer a quiet respite. Expect a vast drink selection-wine and beer, too-along with light bites”

Café

“Located at Oxford and White Oak Dr. This place could also be listed under restaurants because the food is so good, but is primarily a bar. It has a low key vibe if the idea of a loud, busy bar isn’t what you are looking for.”
