It’s hot outside, to state the obvious. The weather experts that we are, our recommendations are as follows: drink plenty of liquids, spend as much time in air-conditioned spaces as possible. If your liquid of choice is tequila, and your space is on Washington Ave, take refuge in the stunning new Todos Santos bar.
Located at 5317 Washington Ave, in the company of Clutch, Kung Fu Saloon, and HandleBar, Todos Santos is a Heights newcomer with glowing digs. Touted as a tequila bar, Todos Santos offers a dazzling, energetic place for Houstonians – particularly the Instagram-types – to turn up.
If you’re the kind of person who can’t spend a night out without documenting every last moment, Todos Santos is for you. From the front to the back, the bar is filled with potential Instagram backdrops. During daylight hours, the bar’s radiant seating fixtures and floral touches pop, whereas, come nightfall, its various neon sign, multi-media installations, and ceiling lights come to life.
For libations, Todos Santos offers a variety of margaritas, colorful specialty cocktails, a short list of beer, and tequila-based seltzers. Its specialty cocktails include Smoking in the Sauna – made with Hornitos Cristlino, Ilegal Joven, cilantro, jalapeno, lime, and Topo Chico; Pretty in Pink – made with Calirosa Blanco, lemon, and prosecco; and Mamacita – a concoction of Grey Goose, strawberry puree, lime, and Mamitas Agave Seltzer.
The bar also offers an extensive list of spirits for bottle services, with tequila, mezcal, vodka, gin, rum, whiskey, scotch, and champagne options.
Happy Hour at Todos Santos runs from 4 pm to 9 pm Tuesdays through Fridays; here, patrons can purchase discounted Mexican beer ($5), wells ($7), and margaritas ($9).
Todos Santos is open Tuesdays through Sundays at 5317 Washington Ave.
