The best man owns the duty of planning an unforgettable bachelor party for the groom; one that will make him proud he chose you to stand next to him while he leaves bachelorhood forever. Hopefully this is the first and last time that your buddy walks down the isle and says his “I dos.” But even if it’s not, at least you can have another great bachelor party at these Houston hot spots.
Heights Cigar Lounge
240 W 19th St
Houston, TX 77008
The best place in Houston to kick off your bachelor party right is at the Heights Cigar Lounge. Start off your night in what feels like your own den, complete with a fireplace, a large flat screen and leather recliners and sofas. This lounge offers a large walk-in humidor where you can find a great selection of cigars that fit every taste and every budget, as well as a game table where you can play dominos or Texas hold ’em. You’ll feel right at home as you kick back with your boys and relax in preparation for the long night ahead.
280 Grove Road
Kemah, TX 77565
Treat your bachelor bud to a night of boating entertainment along Kemah’s boardwalk. Choose from various party packages depending on what would suit your bachelor’s taste the best. The Booze Cruise would be a great option because it can hold up to 80 guests and can be tailored to any specific party requests like a DJ, party games, Mardi Gras beads for tossing, etc. After returning from the ride, see what the town of Kemah has to offer and keep the party going into the wee hours of the morning.
2621 Milam St
Houston, TX 77006
After leaving the cruise, how about letting your inner rockstar out? If you’re looking for something different from the usual bars and clubs in Houston, try Glitter Karaoke. It has a huge selection of music to choose from and weekend nights are packed with wanna-be rappers and rockstars. The later the night, the louder and crazier this place gets. Glitter also has a private room for parties, but the real fun is singing with your group on stage in the bar where you’ll be cheered on and usually have a houseful singing along with you.
Once you’ve had your fill of singing (or maybe just watching) karaoke, Union Bar & Lounge is a great place to celebrate the last days of bachelorhood. Union gets packed on the weekends so definitely book a table in the lounge to sit back and watch the crowd get crazy. The music is a mix of old school favorites from the early ’90s up through today’s top 40. Choose from three different packages for a VIP experience. These packages must be made in advance so be sure to RSVP.
House of Pies
3112 Kirby Drive
Houston, TX 77098
Who doesn’t love a late-night breakfast after a night of partying? End the night of all nights by hitting the House of Pies for the best breakfast in town after carousing the Bayou City. This 24-hour Houston favorite offers pies filled with fruits, creams and meringues, or try one of its specialties such as the Texas Pecan Fudge or Strawberry Cream Cheese. House of Pies also offers a full breakfast menu to fill you and the boys up before making your way home.
