Houston’s Food Hall Boom Shows No Sign of Stopping in 2020

The owners of Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall have multiple new food halls in the works

Ready for even more food halls, Houston? There’s Bravery Chef Hall, Politan Row, Finn Hall, Understory, and even more in the works, yet this trend shows no signs of slowing down in the coming year. The Houston Chronicle reports that the team behind Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall are plotting multiple new food halls, including “repositioning” Conservatory (Houston’s first food hall). Conservatory will close this week on New Year’s Eve, as will the restaurant group’s Prohibition Supperclub & Bar. Then both will re-open in 2020 in EaDo’s Chapman & Kirby space.

Conservatory will also get a sister food hall with Conservatory 2, headed to the Galleria’s former Club Roxy space at 5351 W. Alabama Street in fall 2020. That will be a food hall with less than 15 vendors and bars, while the previously announced Railway Heights Market in Timbergrove is massive — it will span 50 outposts as well as a farmer’s market, beer garden, and dog park.

That’s not all: the Chronicle reports that the owners plan to open Hawker Asian Night Market in Midtown this fall, inspired by similar night markets in Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. This new project at 2601 Main Street will group Asian food vendors and bars on the ground floor, and then build a dim sum lounge and a rooftop bar on the floors above.
