Don’t come to Public Services expecting the frills and invention of modern experimentation—this is a classic whiskey and wine bar. The leather-bound menu matches the grandeur of its setting in Houston’s historic Cotton Exchange building (completed in 1884) with just six essential cocktails. The selection of rare spirits is best experienced through smaller pours, which should allow you to taste your way around the globe, and extend your stay to try the charred eggplant dip.
