Overview
The Historic Houston Craft Cocktail Tour will feature a variety of cocktails from some of the city’s most talented mixologists in addition to a few delicious bites and a dose of history.

Each tour will be different, offering an element of surprise to all participants. We’ve partnered with numerous downtown hotspots including OKRA Charity Saloon, Frank’s Pizza and El Big Bad to name a few. Consider this tour a refined happy hour that transports you back to the beginnings of Houston.

Participants can expect a variety of flavor profiles throughout the tour. Some may enjoy a Blueberry, Jalapeño & Cilantro Margarita paired with a hearty Steak Carne Asada Taco or a warm, flakey Plantain Empanada (vegetarian-friendly) from El Big Bad. Others may enjoy a refreshing Peach Moonshine paired with a mouthwatering Smoked Brisket Grilled Cheese from The Moonshiners Southern Table + Bar. Some may even enjoy both! All tours will end with a spiked coffee drink for a little pick-me-up.

Star was incredibly kind and professional. Such a lovely kit with thorough instructions. In this pandemic world we are living in she made the virtual tour very personal.

I booked this food tour as a present for my fiance, not knowing how absolutely incredible it would be. I had been on only one food tour before this, but now I don't know how I'll ever be able to go on another one that could top Star's. Star made our experience fun, personal, and perfect in every aspect. She carefully planned the meals and places so that we would have an array of drinks and cuisines, without being overly stuffed or tipsy! She really fostered community among the group, and personally got to know each member of the group. Star is GREAT at what she does. This food tour will forever be my favorite one, and probably one of my favorite days. Booking another one soon, and gifting them to all the members of my family!!!

Had an absolutely great time on this tour! I learned a lot about the Historic Market Square area of Houston and local businesses (one of my favorite spots already)! We had our fill of yummy cocktails and food. I would love to do it again and want to try any tour led by Star / Best Bites Houston. Whether you want to be a tourist in your own city for a day and learn something new or are visiting from out of town, I definitely recommend to anyone.

I've heard so many great things about this tour, I had to experience it myself. Star was incredibly informative and made sure everyone felt included, especially me as I took this tour alone. Not only was she knowledgeable about the restaurants we were tasting at, but also shared facts about the historic buildings around us. After the tour, I fell more in love with my own city. Definitely recommend!!

The Booze, Bites and Historical Sites tour was one of my favorite things we did in Houston on our vacation! Star was an incredible guide and gave us such a unique history of downtown Houston. The food and craft cocktails we tried were all delicious and the restaurants we stopped at were all very hospitable. This tour is an absolutely must for visitors and locals alike, HIGHLY recommend!!
