Insomuch as Houston can be said to have a classic when it comes to cocktail bars with an eye to craftsmanship, Anvil is it. Owner Bobby Huegel is the rising tide that lifted all of Houston's booze boats (many of the barkeeps on this list are Anvil alums), and the ship is just as right as ever. Go early on a weeknight to ensure the optimal experience, and take a minute to chat with your bartender about what you'd like to drink. Between a list of 100 or so classics, rotating house specialties and an engaging staff always willing to shake something up just for you, Anvil is the quintessential Houston drinking experience.
