Nightlife Bar & Lounge

Three cheers for Downton Houston’s nightlife bar & lounge. A new hot spot has been added to the lineup. The Commoner, located at 410 Main, officially opened its doors last weekend. This spot, like many nearby, is open seven days a week from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. Boasting a “simple, straightforward” style, this spot is serving up cocktails, beer and wine — no food, though.

Need a little direction when ordering a drink? Bar supervisor Joe Stark has a suggestion: The honeydew sour. With your choice of vodka or rum, the honeydew juice, pink peppercorn, lemon and Midori blend together for what he calls the perfect balance of sweet and sour.

What’s more, this watering hole added another spot upstairs called The Boulevardier¬†is also open Thursday through Saturday. The vibe is a west coast laid back lounge with good music. Owner Carson Hager says will be a respite from the hustle and bustle of Main Street, and will have more of a lounge vibe.
