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 about 75 miles northwest of the heart of Downtown, Brenham is a friendly city known for its seasonal bluebonnets (which bloom in early April) and its German heritage (check out the annual Maifest celebrating spring each May).

Visit this charming part of Texas to get a taste of its history (and the Lone Star State’s favorite ice cream), and pop into one of its finest watering holes for some adult beverages while you’re at it.
