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.

Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.

Mohl and Leo Villareal's 'Houston Light Matrix' installation

FOR RACHEL MOHL, recently named the new Executive Director and Chief Curator of Public Art of the University of Houston System (Public Art UHS), the power of public art is its ability to engage large audiences. “It’s anything that’s exhibited in public spaces and meant to engage people in their everyday life,” says Rohr. “It’s combining art and life on a large scale.” Mohl also believes art can reveal untold histories, explore cultural exchanges, and engender a social awareness. “Public art is a really great stage in which to do that, because it’s so front and center in our communities,” she says.
