The tour starts at the bar in Georgia’s Market, a cool spot with a restaurant and grocery store inside. You’ll meet your local guide and get the full scoop on how this building used to be a gambling parlour back in 1895. With a history like that, there are plenty of stories within its walls. After some introductions, you’ll take a stroll through Market Square Park, a small urban oasis complete with restaurants, sculptures, memorials, and remnants from old Houston buildings and sidewalks. This spot is a hive of activity and full of Houston history, and with your local guide to show you all the points of interest, you’ll never miss a beat. This park is ringed by bars and pubs inside historic buildings, including an award-winning wine bar inside the Kennedy Bakery Building, a tailor shop that becomes a bar at night, a local hangout with a jukebox featuring tunes from the fifties, a charity bar that believes in the connection between food, drink, and community, plus many more authentic Houston bars. With a selection like that, you’ll never be stuck for choice! After you’ve sampled a drink in the square, you’ll head for a more elegant bar to try out pinball, or challenge your group to a game of pool. Finally, you’ll perch on cowhide seats and order designer drinks at the bar inside the 1912 Union National Bank Building, the perfect way to finish off a fun-filled evening in Houston.
