Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

#49 Anvil Bar and Refuge (Houston, Texas)

Anvil Bar and Refuge was one of the first bars in the United States to serve classically styled cocktails like The Brave (mezcal, tequila, amaro, Curaçao and Angostura bitters, served at room temperature) at lower prices. There are 114 cocktails on the menu, but the bartenders can make far more. The lively Houston space, opened by Bobby Heugel when he was just 24 years old, features a bar running the length of the space and a huge spirit collection. Heugel is also one of the bar owners behind OKRA Charity Saloon, a not-for-profit bar. There is a small food menu of nibbles like cheese, charcuterie, and snacks at the Texas bar. (Rye E./Yelp)
