The Dirt

Owned by El Gran Malo's Steve Sharma and Lea McKinney, this spot has a completely different clientele but a similar laid-back, welcoming vibe that warmly embraces anyone who isn't judgmental and is seeking a good, loud time. Formerly located on Yale Street just outside of the historic Houston Heights, The Dirt was sign-less, signified only by its neon address. But now there is a large, metal sign that will tell you where to go after a concert or meal downtown. 

The popular after-concert venue (it has hosted after-parties for Gaga, Muse, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Audioslave and others), it's your best bet to run into a House of Blues performer after they've left the stage.
