You may know Brenner’s on the Bayou as a fancy Houston steakhouse…but did you know it’s also the perfect place for an outdoor happy hour with babies or toddlers?
If you’re skeptical, trust me – I was too. But we’ve now been here several times on weekends and weekdays and both adults and littles give the experience two thumbs up!
The trick is to make your way all the way down to the lower patio, where you can snag a comfy sectional or two for your group. In addition to drinks (which you order upstairs at the outdoor bar), you can choose from a selection of yummy appetizers, from sloppy joe sliders to duck empanadas to venison corn dogs to tuna tartare tacos. Some of the appetizers will please toddler palates – but if not, there are always french fries 🙂
The patio is huge, which means crawlers can crawl, walkers can walk, and runners can run while you keep an eye on them. But, inevitably, the kiddos will want to explore what lies beyond. And here, too, you’re in luck, because what’s around the patio is beautiful and calling out to be explored.
Look for fountains, mini waterfalls, bridges, hills, walkways, stairs, and more on the spacious grounds.
