Bayou City Buzz - oldest bar in Houston

- La Carafe is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, bar in Houston. The bar has been open since 1955, and the commercial building where it is located is even older.

The bar caught our attention recently when one of the massive columns of candle wax toppled over after having been growing for more than two years.

The place gives you a vibe of being able to relax, think and have a drink without it all the distractions. Not just any drink -- beer and wine is their specialty

The two-level gem is located right across from Market Square Park. If you're planning a visit, remember that La Carafe only excepts cash to accommodate their antique cash register.
