Guys Night Out Restaurant and Bars in Houston

Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

705 Main St, Houston, TX 77002

This popular downtown bar may seem like an obvious choice--giant beer selection, plenty of group seating and a dart board thrown in for good measure--and that's exactly what makes it such a good spot for a guys night out in Houston. Not everything has to be complicated.

Downing Street Ltd

2549 Kirby Dr, Houston, TX 77019

This one's for all you classic gentlemen. Throw back some whiskey and enjoy a stogie at this refined River Oaks joint. After all, it's your right as a man, damn it, and that's what men do.

Porch Swing Pub

69 Heights Blvd, Houston, TX 77007

The only thing missing from a night of whiskey is a juicy steak. The laid-back steak nights at this Heights bar take care of that. On Thursdays from 5pm to 9pm, you can get a 16-ounce rib eye served with all the fixings for $14. Go ahead and make it your regular guys night out hang in Houston.

Sam Houston Race Park

7575 North Sam Houston Pkwy, Houston, TX 77064

With no slots close by, you'll have to scratch your gambling itch at this horse racing track. Catch live racing from late January to early March, but the park is open year-round thanks to simulcasts of races from the world over. Time to bone up on your thoroughbreds.

Sawyer Park Sports Bar

2412 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007

There's always a game on at this Washington Avenue sports bar, which has plenty of flat-screen TVs, as well as great views of the downtown skyline from a patio that will make you feel on top of the world. If you're planning an epic guys night, and can swing it, reserve the clubhouse and feel like you own the place.

Men's Club Of Houston

3303 Sage Rd, Houston, TX 77056

OK, here it is--the obligatory strip club listing. The guys night out cliche has been a go-to option since before there were dollar bills. For a non-seedy experience, check out this upscale gentleman's club, which offers free admission before 9pm on Fridays, so you can save your hard-earned money for later.

Kung Fu Saloon

5317 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007

For a decidedly more innocent experience, head to this part-vintage arcade, part-sports bar. Geek out over classic games like Space Invaders and Donkey Kong, or grab a board game for a round of giant Connect Four or Jenga. You?d feel like a kid again, if it weren't for the beer.
