Drinks with a View
Whether you’re after a twinkling city skyline or a sweeping vista of the Gulf, these watering holes offer plenty of scenery to sip by.
Number 13, 7809 Broadway, 409-572-2650. Whether in the bar or on the terrace, you’ll enjoy both expansive views of the Pelican Rest Marina and smart craft cocktails, or perhaps a bottle from Number 13’s vast wine list.
The Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House, 2300 Ship’s Mechanic Row, 409-763-0300. It doesn’t get more romantic than this aerie, four stories above historic downtown Galveston, with its tremendous view of the nightlife and the harbor beyond.
The Sandbar at Waterman’s Restaurant, 14302 Stewart Rd., 409-632-0233. Adjacent to Waterman’s steakhouse, this casual bar welcomes shorts and flip-flops, offering burgers, beer and a great Galveston Bay view.
Float Pool & Patio Bar, 2828 Seawall Blvd., 409-765-7946. This two-story bar on the Seawall offers two equally compelling views: the ocean and the festivities on display in the pool and swim-up bar below.
RumShack, 3204 Seawall Blvd., 409-621-5327. One of four themed bars surrounding beachfront restaurant The Spot, this particular palapa bar is known island-wide for its tropical, rum-based creations.
Longboard Pool Bar, 1702 Seawall Blvd., 409-762-4141. This bar made a splash with its set-up: Well-dressed patrons can’t order drinks until they swim across a pool. Watch the fun or take the plunge yourself.
