Normalize pastries and cocktails – that’s what we say. Thankfully, there are multiple places in Houston where you can bring the best of worlds together. Recently, Common Bond Brasserie & Bakery opened another location in the Theater District, fit with an absolutely adorable interior and one, bubble gum-styled back dining room and bar.
Common Bond first opened up shop in Montrose in May of 2014. Here, locals could sit down and enjoy a delectable array of breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner items. Additionally, its delectable pastries, cookies, cakes, and desserts made it a go-to for resident sweet-teeth. Since then it’s been a culinary mainstay, and eventually expanded, opening up multiple locations throughout Houston.
Recently, it opened a Brasserie and Bakery at 800 Capitol Street in Downtown, Houston. While Common Bond offers beer, wine, and libations at multiple locations, Happy Hour at its Brasserie and Bakery is positively giddy.
For one, its decor is simply adorable. With its starry light fixtures, interplay of textures, and colorful accents, the Brasserie and Bakery is one of the most charming places in Houston to raise a glass.
In addition to an expanded selection of wines and craft beers, CB B&B serves a variety of spirits and craft cocktails. Each priced at $11, options include Vesper, Sazerac, Paloma, Cosmopolitan, Aperol Spritz, and Mint Julep.
Craft cocktails include the Lavender Field, Mezcal Mule, Edgewater Beach, Amalfi Coast, Charred Pineapple Mojito, and Blueberry Harvest – the latter made with Dripping Springs Vodka, blueberry, simple syrup, lemon, and pinot noir.
Its Happy Hour also includes a variety of shared and individual plates, including Fried Green Olives, Chipotle Deviled Eggs, Sliders, Warm Cheddar & Green Onion Biscuits, as well as an assortment of flatbreads.
Happy Hour runs from 4 pm to 6 pm at four of Common Bond’s locations. Editor’s note: don’t skip on dessert!
