H-Town Is Pouring It On for Queen Bey's Renaissance Tour. Here Are Our Favorite Tribute Cocktails

HOMETOWN HOT STUFF Beyoncé returns Sept. 23-24 for her Renaissance world tour, and H-Town is laying out the red carpet. Don’t have a ticket to the show? Toast, sip, and get fired up anyway with Bey themed cocktails galore. Here’s where!


Axelrad

"Pure (Hot) Honey"

Midtown hotspot Axelrad is pouring up the Pure (Hot) Honey with tequila, hot honey, grapefruit,lime and grapefruit bitters. They’re open after the concert on Saturday until 2am and on Sunday until midnight. It should cost a billion to look this good — but the cocktail is only $11.

Bar Louie

Bar Louie's Diva cocktail

Pull up a chair for the pink Diva martini Sept. 24 at this bar with multiple locations including The Woodlands. Snag happy-hour drink specials from 4-7pm along with half-off all bar bites. Its kitchen stays open until 2am if you want to swing by after the show.

Blossom Hotel

The 'Cuff It' cocktail

During the tour weekend, the hotel's rendezVu bar — located near NRG — will offer three cocktails inspired by Beyoncé. "Break My Soul" stars peach schnapps, pineapple juice and tequila, while "Cuff It" is sweeter with blackberry syrup, Grand Marnier and a blackberry swizzle stick. "Crazy in Love" features vodka, forest fruit tea and Aperol. Cheers!

Dish Society

The Phantom

The Phantom Lemonade mocktail is easily upgraded to celebrity status with your choice of liquor. Cool, black and sparkly with a cheerful yellow garnish mirroring a bumblebee, the drink is a fitting tribute the popstar legend.

Hyatt Regency Houston

This Downtown hotel will feature a Renaissance-themed bar with cocktails such as "I Got Hot Sauce in my Bag" and "Becky with the Good Hair." Join the fun from 3-11pm on Sept. 23 and dress the part for a selfie station and nonstop Bey music.

Incanto and Simone on Sunset

Both establishments will dispense the dark and moody Beautiful Nightmare cocktail on concert weekend. The complex and fragrant concoction is inspired by Beyonce’s hit “Sweet Dreams” and includes dark rum, crème de violette, sweet vermouth and lime, crowned with a gold leaf.

Lucille's

Kick off the celebratory weekend in style at this Museum District favorite. Bey-focused cocktails are many including the beautiful “Queen Bey” with cognac, limoncello, orange bitters and a brown sugar rim. Or consider the fueled-up “Everybody on Mute” made with gin, cucumber syrup, lime prosecco and silver glitter — it’s not just for “All the Single Ladies!”

Musaafer

Glistening Bey Lemonade created by beverage director Afzal Kaba is a lively libation inspired by Beyonce’s favorite things and to honor her birthday month. The cocktail features Don Julio tequila infused with lemon and shaken with organic honey, limoncello and edible glitter. It’s topped with prosecco and a cowboy hat and each imbiber will receive a disco ball necklace to wear. Available Sept. 18-24.

The Original Ninfa's

"Disco Limonada"

Both Ninfa’s locations are pouring two Bey-inspired drinks. The ultra-boozy Disco Limonada features melon liqueur, gin, tequila and housemade fresh lemonade. While the equally strong Blue Ivy stars Aguasol tequila, Caribbean pineapple liqueur, banana liqueur, pina colada mix and freshlime juice.
