This is a Houston institution. But it is not for everyone. The drinks are great. The playlist is always on point and it is intimate and yet seldom empty!

For those who remember Marfreless as the "cool" place to go back in the 70s, there's good news & there's bad news. The good news is that discreet location with no indication of what's behind the unmarked door is still there and with some classy...More

The blue door and the secret knock (I was tricked). Loved the decor, the paint on the walls, the lighting or lack of it. It will make the felines just want to cuddle right up to you. Let me not forget to mention the music....More

This is a great bar to come and get the feel of the 50's and 60's cocktail bar. It is dark inside and there are a lot of couples there looking for some good one-on-one time. But overall, the atmosphere is great and the cocktails...More

Marfreless is a rather darksome highly atmospheric upscale cocktail bar behind an unmarked door on 2600 Peden street, close to River Oaks. The cocktails are quite good and have suggestive names .... The Sauvignon blanc on open bottle was delicious.

As stated by the Houston Bucket list, this dimly lit bar it perfect to have a romantic date. It has private booths upstairs to get cozy with a date. They also have larger booths and tables for groups. The drinks are a bit pricy but...More

I liked that it was tucked away, dark and has a fun past, but that wasn't enough to make up for the atrocious martini they served me. It was one of the worst I have ever had - it tied with a martini I had...More

This was my first visit since the closing and re-opening. I have been a patron since 1981. No more classical music and great art work. Now you get loud music and bare walls. The waitress was asked to turn down the music with negative results....More

There is no sign out front and the door is hidden behind a beuilding and underneath a stairway. So, finding it for the first time may be a little tricky. However, its well worth the hunt. Inside its very dark and not very spacious. However,...More
