Rose Garden

Houston, Texas

Houston’s Rose Garden is hard to find, difficult to park near and cramped once inside, also known as all the makings of a great dive bar. Located in The Heights neighborhood of Houston, Rose Garden balances out the progressive gentrification of the area as a cash-only, beer- and wine-only holdout. Rose Garden is owned by, you guessed it, Rose Marie, who lives across the street and treats the dive bar as an extension of her own home.

The structure makes that an easy feat to accomplish, the space looking like a converted house complete with spacious backyard slash patio drinking area. Lesser known is Rose Garden’s Polish heritage, a reflection of the influx of Polish-Texan relocation to Houston after World War II. Rose Garden is about as hidden as a gem can be in a city the size of Houston with an affinity for Elvis to boot.
