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.
