    The La Carafe building is listed on the National Register for Historic Places and is believed to be the oldest bar in Houston, and is the oldest commercial building still in use, in Houston. Built by developer Nathaniel Kellum in 1847, the La Carafe building has remained a two-story public venue since it's construction.

    The La Carafe building is listed on the National Register for Historic Places and is believed to be the oldest bar in Houston, and is the oldest commercial building still in use, in Houston. Built by developer Nathaniel Kellum in 1847, the La Carafe building has remained a two-story public venue since it's construction.

    While many would assume La Carafe is just a bar, its really much more than that. La Carafe is actually a reasonably priced wine bar where anyone (age 21 or over) can enjoy a mellow atmosphere, a nice wine selection, and depending on the night- good company and interesting people. The dim lights are coupled with arguably the best jukebox in town, ringing tunes from jazz and oldies to the cool sounds of Bob Marley. The bar takes as much space as the area for customers, but that doesn’t stop those wanting to come in and relax a bit, even if it means cozying up to a stranger on a crowded Saturday night. The enduring popularity of La Carafe cannot be understood by those who have not been there, nor explained by those who have. It simply a place to experience and embrace; and if you let it, La Carafe will embrace you too.
