Hearsay Gastrolounge, a popular concept started in Houston, serves inspired renditions of contemporary American dishes and specialty craft cocktails in a chic antique atmosphere. Hearsay prides itself on being “half old world revival, half culinary crusaders.” This will make Hearsay’s fourth restaurant with two locations in Downtown Houston and another on the Strand in Galveston. With a quaint terrace complementing the restaurant, Hearsay will be open for lunch and dinner daily as well as weekend brunch.

The Rose Lounge will serve American fair with a Texas twist while providing an entertainment experience on The Woodlands Waterway. The Rose Lounge is a new concept created by Diego Manobanda and Washington Revelo. The Rose Lounge will feature two levels including a rooftop space for its upscale restaurant setting.




Hearsay Gastrolounge and The Rose Lounge will be located next to Cyclone Anaya’s Tex-Mex Kitchen and Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.
