After closing its doors for a revamp, tiki-themed bar Voodoo Queen is just about ready to reintroduce itself to Houston drinkers.
A post to the now-shuttered bar’s Facebook page announces that Voodoo Queen is “close” to opening its doors again. Opened in 2013, the divey Second Ward bar shut down in September of last year after a fire caused extensive damage to the building. Originally, the plan was to re-open sometime earlier this year, but delays in the cleaning and construction process pushed that back.
Check out the bar’s update below:
For drinkers who are unfamiliar with the cheeky tiki bar, Voodoo Queen is a project from the minds behind Montrose pizza restaurant Love Buzz and Moon Tower Inn. From the beginning, Voodoo Queen’s owners have positioned it as a decidedly lowbrow alternative to some of Houston’s snootier drinking haunts. When the bar opened, owner Brandon Young said that it would serve “everything Anvil [Bar and Refuge] and Pastry War do not.”
Stay tuned for more updates on when Voodoo Queen will officially make its return.
