From the minds and management of Big Star Bar, Sassafras, and Grand Prize Bar is another instantly beloved, classic Houston dive bar, Lil’ Danny Speedo’s Go Fly a Kite Lounge. Its name isn’t the only thing that makes it unique — nestled on Dumble St. in the East End near downtown, this self-proclaimed “bar-ass bar” is a come-as-you-are, laid-back party that lasts from 4pm—2am daily. In a building that used to be an alien-themed icehouse (yes, really), management offers a full bar, craft beer, and rotating offerings of seriously creative frozen delights. A roomy, dog-friendly patio couples with a spacious, neon-lit indoor space. Food trucks and culinary pop-ups cycle nights throughout the week for a wide variety of the city’s best food.
