La Carafe information
Set in Houston's oldest building, La Carafe is the most atmospheric bar in the city. It's a warmly lit drinking den, with exposed brick, sepia photos on the walls and flickering candles. You'll also find a great jukebox and a friendly eclectic crowd. On weekends the upstairs bar room opens, with a second floor balcony overlooking Market Square.
