Drinking outside is a big sign that spring/summer has arrived. Who doesn't love to sit outside on a nice day and have a drink, especially if it's on the water? On the islands and in beach towns you can find many bars and restaurants that overlook the water or are even out in the water. Texas now has its very own floating barge that has been turned into a party spot. This gem is located in Seabrook, Texas. According to Wikipedia, Seabrook is located near Houston:

Please allow me to introduce you to Barge 295, located on Clear Lake in Seabrook, Texas. Barge 295 is known for being a local hot spot with great drinks, delicious food, and live music.

You can obviously drive to the barge or you can just pull your boat right up into one of the slips.

According to Only In Your State, here is what you can expect:

You can enjoy open-air seating on the upper or lower patio, each has its own bar. Their drink menu looks to please everyone and carries drafts from local breweries and distilleries. They do have a wide variety of drinks looking to please anyone's tastebuds. Whatever you are hungry for you can most likely find it on the menu. If it's seafood you are looking for, you have found your place. They have several different types of oysters, gumbo, fish, and shrimp. You can also find favorites like burgers tacos and salads.

This is definitely a place I would love to hang out. Maybe I will try it out the next time I head to the Houston area.
