Walk into Conservatory Beer Garden & Food Hall in downtown Houston during weekday lunch and you’ll find a little bit of everything. Families with kids slurping noodles from their ramen bowls, groups drinking pints of beer, office workers in for a plate of Texas barbecue, a casual lunch date enjoying crepes.
Located in a basement next door to Prohibition Supperclub & Bar, this cool spot is the brainchild of Prohibition owners Anh Mai and Lian Pham. Open from 11 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and late into the night on weekends (until 2 a.m. on Thursdays and 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays), Conservatory is a good dining option no matter the time of day or mood you’re in. It’s a place to grab lunch, drink a beer after work, eat dinner and get a late-night bite to eat after an evening out. You can get all your food at one place or have a taste of it all.
When you go try Melange Creperie and El Burro and The Bull who opened last year; or venture to new arrivals like Moku Bar, a poke and tempura concept from the owners of the Casian King food truck; Arte Pizzeria, a new concept by Pastry Chef Kelsey Hawkins; Mars Bakery, a kolache and donut bar ; and Noble Rot Wine Bar, a boutique wine bar. Also keep an eye out for specials and brunch and happy hour menus, which will soon be offered paired with beers and wines from the bar.
