Houston comes alive at night, with dives, cocktail bars, and nightclubs dotting the city. In our Houston Nightlife: Best Bars, we’ll cover the best night owl watering holes in each neighborhood.

Sitting just 15 miles northeast of Downtown, Lake Houston is a reservoir on the San Jacinto River that is open to the public for boating and fishing.

If you’re unwinding in the area—which includes surrounding neighborhoods like Atascocita, Humble, and Kingwood, there are also a number of watering holes to keep you occupied by night.
