Anvil says on its website that it was the city's first bar dedicated to classic cocktails, and its 13-page drink menu reflects the establishment's commitment to fine spirits.
The bar also serves small plates and meat and cheese platters. It is open seven days a week from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. at 1424 Westheimer.
The annual ranking of the world's best bars is compiled by 500 drink experts from around the world and organized by William Reed Business Media. So far, the company has only announced rankings 51 through 100; the top 50 bars will be announced in October, and it's possible that more Houston establishments could make the list.
