5 Of The Best Bartenders In Houston For 2017

(HOUSTON) — Everyone deserves a drink, but today here’s a little secret. The list of the top 5 bartenders in the LGBT community. Because everyone deserves a drink from this year’s best bartenders.

Even though we suggest getting to know all the bartenders in our community, we really suggest acquainting yourself, your friends, with these innovators of all things boozy, and yummy in Montrose. Great bartenders wear many different hats while they sling those cocktails. Because of this, it’s very difficult to pick these masters. But we tried our best.

#1.

Austin Abernathy at Hamburger Mary's

Austin Abernathy of Hamburger Mary’s probably won’t admit it, but he’s a huge puzzle piece who has helped Hamburger Mary’s grow their sales from behind the bar. With all the seasonal science experiments that Austin is constantly cooking up, there’s really no way to ever tell what kind of new flavor experiments he has up his sleeve. That’s why it’s probably best to give him a few clues and then sit back and enjoy whatever he whips up for you.

#2.

Christopher Hunter at Guava Lamp

If you’ve wandered down Waugh Drive in Montrose on a Wednesday night and been drawn into Guava Lamp by the glowing neon lights, you have most likely been served a drink by Christopher Hunter. Guava’s resident cocktail master, Hunter is deliberate and precise with his drinks while also making sure that no one is thirsty for too long.

#3.

Jared Miles at Jr's Bar & Grill

The word ‘green’ comes to mind when talking about Jared Miles. While holding it down behind the bar of Jr’s Bar & Grill, Jared treats the thirsty of Montrose. He can whip you up a made-from-scratch margarita or extra-dirty martini to the beat of the drag queens or dancers. Jared’s genial nature and welcoming warmth are what keeps regulars coming back and visitors likely to become regulars.

#4.

Eric Ervin at Rich's Houston

For years, the undisputed cocktail master of the Montrose cocktail scene has been Eric Ervin. Even though he now mixes his master cocktails at Rich’s in Midtown. There’s a reason that Eric is considered “the bartender’s bartender.” Don’t be surprised if he remembers your drink and exactly how you like it even after only a few visits.

#5.

Chris Contello at The Eagle Houston

If you visit the Eagle Houston, you’re likely to be served a drink by Mr. Chris Contello. He’s the one at the end of the bar, near the DJ booth. Chris hides a great secret: He’s secretly a cocktail master and one of the sweetest bartenders you will encounter. He remembers your name and your flavor.
