WINE BAR HAPPY HOUR AT UNDERBELLY Underbelly is one of the finest restaurants in the city, and it’s home to some of the best wine, too. Of particular note is the Monday through Saturday happy hour, which runs from 3–6:30 p.m. and picks up again from 10 p.m. until midnight. Reds, whites, and bubbles are half-price by the glass, and all of the wine is sourced from family-owned and operated wineries. Be sure to try a plate or two from the Wine Bar Menu, where James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Shepherd pays homage to some of his influences with his “covers” menu. It’s a rollicking tour of some of Shepherd’s favorite dishes from restaurants across the country, all with a unique Houston twist.
