Believed to be the oldest bar in Houston and considered haunted as well, La Carafe Wine Bar is one of the places I absolutely LOVE. Of course, I’ve never had the privilege to experience the haunted side of this mesmerizing place. Hopefully one day that will change.
With its candle lit tables draped with red vinyl tablecloth, accompanied by the miraculous tunes of the jukebox that play selections from Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Bob Marley, Peggy Lee, and many more; it’s almost as if you could travel back in time! There is so much history here. You can see it, feel it, and its inside appeal gives off a cozy and intimate ambiance that is alluring in every way.
La Carafe is reasonably priced with a cheering selection of wines and assorted domestic and imported beers. There is a lovely view from their 2nd floor balcony, however, the upstairs does not open until after 9pm but do not, I repeat, do not forget to venture up there when the time comes.
If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary or just something new to experience… this is an amazing place I’m sure your date or significant other will not only approve of, but enjoy as well. Ahem, you’re definitely getting brownie points for this one! 😉
