This weekend our staff are doing mock services and training all through the weekend, with friends and family of management and staff acting as guinea pigs for us! This will give us the opportunity to fine tune our service and our offerings and to iron out any kinks that may arise. We open for business this coming week, on Monday 14th, at 3pm. For the first couple of weeks we will be opening every day at 3pm for Happy Hour food and drinks, with dinner service starting at 5pm each day. After a couple of weeks we will start weekend brunch, and then a couple of weeks after that we will start midweek lunches.
Our official launch party is currently being planned and will take place in roughly one month from now. All NextSeed investors that earned that reward will receive an invitation as p
This last week was our final permitting phase where we completed mechanical, plumbing, fire and health. This week we begin staff training and can feel the excitement slowly building. We are getting close!
We wanted to hold off from sharing any photos until we open and have our grand unveiling. We look forward to sharing the BIG news with you soon! Stay tuned!
We are nearly there and are excited to share that kitchen equipment is arriving as we speak. The photos below highlight the kitchen as it is taking shape. We look forward to an anticipated May opening!
We are excited to announce that Dominick Lee, who was up until now acting as the executive sous-chef at the Levy Park restaurant Kiran’s, has been announced to be taking on the position of executive chef at Poitín!
Stay tuned for more to come from us as we continue to ramp up to the opening in late Spring 2018.
The construction team is pushing hard and fast and things are really taking shape, with the bar counter walled in, as well as the kitchen and dining area. All electrical and plumbing rough-ins are completed and walls are being sealed up soon! We are anticipating a May opening. Please stay tuned!

We are excited to share that construction is in full swing and things are starting to take shape. Underground plumbing and electrical is now complete and we are working on getting the kitchen walls up and laying out the bar (pictures below). Please stay tuned!
Construction started this past Monday, and things are progressing as scheduled.
In the meantime, we hosted a small gathering on the patio, grilled some burgers and shared some drinks. The bright downtown skyline was a perfect backdrop, and it was exciting to see the potential of the space.
Our final permit approval just came through yesterday, so we’re good to start construction! The contractor is confirmed, and work will start in about 3 weeks.
More milestones with permitting have been cleared – only one more department with the city’s permitting office left to go.
This was one area in which we thought there may be a slowdown with the city after Harvey, but things have progressed for us so far. We’re getting closer!
I’m a relative newcomer to this city, but I’m so proud to be a Houstonian in this moment in the city’s history. The people of Houston have a giving and unshakable spirit, and the big hearts of complete strangers has been remarkable. Neighbors picking each other up, feeding and volunteering their time, and contributing to every need imaginable – it has been an honor to witness.
In light of everything going on in the city, I’m resetting some of my campaign terms.
I don’t want to take attention from the Harvey recovery efforts, and I’ve been fortunate to have the support of certain investors to secure the balance of our NextSeed raise. Having said that, I will keep the opportunity open for the community to participate. We still aim to create something exciting and new in the area
We’re making progress with the city and have passed the first round of inspections. We’re now waiting on their second round feedback. After we re-submit following the second round of comments (in about two to three weeks from now), we expect the next feedback from the city to include their approval to proceed with construction.
We’ll keep you posted on updates!
