Two Nights Only! Michelin-Starred Bar Pops Up Downtown to Raise Money for Kids with Cancer

Two Nights Only! Michelin-Starred Bar Pops Up Downtown to Raise Money for Kids with Cancer

THERE’S A NEW bar in town — for two nights, that is! On Oct. 4 and Oct. 5, the Four Seasons’ speakeasy-style bar Bandista hosts Washington D.C.-based beverage director Will Patton and his team for a takeover event. Patton helms D.C. hotspots Bresca and Jônt, as well as the forthcoming Press Club.


Houstonians are in for a treat, as Bresca earned the Michelin Exceptional Cocktails Award and was named one of the Top 10 U.S. Restaurant Bars by Tales of the Cocktail; Jônt holds two Michelin stars, and is one of the region’s most hard-to-come-by reservations. The Houston event will feature five cocktails ranging from $20-$40, and will benefit Camp H-Town, the Four Seasons’ initiative that offers a summer-camp experience to children impacted by cancer.

"We are thrilled to partner on this exclusive pop-up exchange with the incredible team at Bresca, Jônt and Press Club,” said Tom Segesta, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Houston. “In addition to offering our local guests a taste of one of the country’s best bar programs, we will bring Bandista to the District of Columbia, offering an intoxicating taste of H-Town’s finest.”

Bandista bartender Zachary Churbock and Beverage Manager Johnathan Jones host a similar takeover at Bresca in Washington D.C. on Oct. 9.

In Houston, reservations are required for 90-minute seatings. The event runs from 5:00pm-midnight both nights.

ONCE UPON A time on a charming vintage corner of West University Place, chef Tony Luhrman cranked out tacos and other Mexican specialties in his tiny restaurant El Topo. The newcomer earned recognition from Texas Monthly and elsewhere, but couldn’t pull out of the post-COVID slump. Enter Maximo in the same space, a new Mexican concept owned by Benjy Levit (Local Foods, Lees Den, Eau Tour), Luhrman, and Dylan Murray of Local Foods.
