Several Stylish New Retailers Opening at the Galleria

Joey Uptown

THE GALLERIA ANNOUNCED the addition of six luxury retailers and one new restaurant, all first-to-market.


Opening soon in the Jewel Box space previously occupied by Yauatcha, Joey Uptown is a celebrated Canadian concept boasting multiple open kitchens with sushi stations, plus bites like Korean fried cauliflower, fish tacos, noodle bowls and more. Guests can watch the talented chefs all night long.

And as the season turns, several new shopping destinations are throwing open their doors. Giorgio Armani's temporary boutique is now open; its new permanent storefront bows later this year. Valentino also recently debuted its renovated flagship boutique — outfitted beautifully in luxe materials like gray Venetian terrazzo flooring, with accents of walnut and kilim wool — and John Varvatos is now open between Ermenegildo Zegna and Tod's, near the Orange Garage entrance.

Coming soon are the only Houston locations of Rag & Bone and Moncler, as well as Louis Vuitton Men's, the first standalone boutique for the fashion house's ready-to-wear men's line.

AN INTERVIEW WITH Jon Heine President of Houston Market, Veritex Community Bank

What were your biggest challenges of 2020? Without question the biggest challenge was pivoting from the playbook we had to begin 2020 in order to quickly address the immediate needs of our clients, colleagues and communities. Working with our customers to provide loan payment deferrals and PPP loans through the SBA Payroll Protection Program (Veritex Bank provided over $400 million to 2,100 clients in Round 1) became the immediate priority. This involved a Herculean effort from over 120 of our colleagues in various departments of the Bank who raised their hand to assist not because of an opportunity, but out of obligation to the communities we serve.
