Traveling to Houston for the Final 4

March 2, 2016 | Permalink

It's almost that time of year again — are you ready for March Madness 2016? We know that some other, more "low-key" fans are content to just watch the games on their TVs all cozied up on the couch, but not you. You're heading to the final four in Houston to experience the madness firsthand. Looking for some of the best sports bars in Houston, or in need of a list of what to do in Houston before, in between or after the games? Keep reading. You know we've got you covered. So book your hotel room and get ready for a great time.

Lucky's Pub

If your team lost and you find yourself needing to blow off some steam, or if your team won and you’re looking to celebrate, head over to Lucky's Pub downtown. With over 250 beers to choose from, a reputation for enormous portions, and skee-ball, darts and — did we mention? — one of the biggest TV screens of any bar in the city, you are sure to find a way to either lick your wounds or clink glasses in celebratory pride. There's great music, even better company and a kitchen that's open past midnight. Lucky's is the perfect way to experience the city like a local.

Heights Cigar Lounge

When you’re tired of the sports bar scene, an afternoon or evening at Heights Cigar Lounge should do the trick. Celebrated for its friendly staff that’s more than willing to make recommendations for amateurs and aficionados alike, Heights Cigar Lounge refers to itself as "your den away from home." Packed with (what else?) leather sofas and recliners, plenty of card game tables for you to meet — and challenge — new friends, and, of course, wifi, TV and the all-important fireplace, Heights Cigar Lounge is the perfect way to really unwind in Houston. Don’t worry if you don't have time to stay to enjoy a smoke before the game; you can pick up a cigar for that win you're counting on later and even speak with one of the bar's knowledgeable tobacconists for advice on something new to try. You can head in, pick up your cigars and walk out just in time for the tipoff. Discover new flavors, find that cigar you enjoyed years ago, or simply enjoy the lingering scents in the air.

While we can't guarantee that your favorite team will walk away with the championship, we can pretty confidently promise that you'll have an amazing time and have no problem finding fun activities in Houston to keep you and your group entertained. Be sure you check out our tips on hot margarita spots in town, too.
