Whether you call the city home or are traveling from out of town, a Houston bachelor party promises to be a weekend you won't forget. With must-see institutions like the Space Center, world-famous eateries serving up the best Texas BBQ, and plenty of commotion to pack out your evenings, Houston has something to offer for everyone.
Sit back and leave the planning to us, because we've built out a Houston bachelor party itinerary complete with all the activities, eats, and accommodations you'll need.
What to Do
Start your bachelor weekend with a stop at Space Center Houston for a world-class experience you won't get anywhere else. During your visit, you'll be up close with over 400 space artifacts and endless exhibits to explore. You can also opt to take the NASA Tram Tour for an opportunity to go on-site of the Johnson Space Center with their two tour options: the Astronaut Training Facility Tour or the Mission Control Center Tour.
If you've got golf enthusiasts in your Houston bachelor party crew, plan some time at the Hermann Park Golf Course. Only a 10-minute trip from downtown Houston, this course is known for its stately oak trees scattered throughout the three-acre property that serves as an oasis within the busy city.
Quality beer is abundant in Houston, with a great variety of craft breweries to include in your agenda. 8th Wonder Brewery, Karbach Brewing Co., and Saint Arnold Brewing Company are all worth a visit, each with its own unique brews and atmosphere. In between brewery stops, be sure to check out the Beer Can House for a quirky yet entirely awesome home completely covered in - you guessed it - beer cans.
For a fun event that feels wholeheartedly Texan, plan a visit to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. While the 20-day event is held just once a year, it's worth planning your trip around the one-of-a-kind festivities.
Where to Eat
You didn't plan a Houston bachelor party to eat light, so be sure to indulge in the famous BBQ joints that make up this meat lover's city. You can't go wrong with a meal at favorites like The Brisket House, Burn's Original BBQ, or The Pit House where you'll find an authentic taste of Texas with anything on the menu.
Once you've had your fill of BBQ, mix it up with the other cuisine that put this place on the map: Tex-Mex. Famous for their signature fajitas, Ninfa's consistently ranks as one of the very best and offers two great locations to visit.
For a post-dinner bar crawl, make your way to Houston's Montrose neighborhood. Made up of four square miles, this neighborhood is your go-to for nightlife, music, and fun. Lower Westheimer is considered the most walkable stretch with top-notch hangouts like The Hay Merchant and Goodnight Charlie's.
Where to Stay
Leave the car at home with a stay at the Hyatt Regency Houston located smack dab in the middle of Downtown. You'll love the property's contemporary style, and they offer a variety of suites to fit your entire group comfortably. Best of all, you'll be a quick walk or ride away from everything Houston has to offer.
