Between the high temperatures and nearly constant humidity, Houston always feels a little tropical, but Present Company takes it over the top with palm trees, frozen drinks, and more neon than you knew was possible for one bar. This Montrose spot has two levels of patios and serves drinks in Lacroix cans, along with Bloody Mary’s out of Campbell’s soup cans during weekend brunch. Stop by for drinks and to take advantage of the pizza, queso, and wings on the late-night menu.
