Wanna see how Houstonians really live by chillin' out maxin' and relaxin' all cool at the city’s most laid-back watering holes ALL DAY LONG. Over in Montrose, the West Alabama Ice House is absolutely legendary. Cheap booze, basketball hoops, and some of the city’s most excellent tacos al pastor help…

Favorite ice house ever - totally what you expect. Outdoor picnic tables, cold beer, shuffleboard and a bunch of dogs running around. Great taco truck is usually parked outside.
