If the decor is any indication, diners at BCK Kitchen & Cocktail Adventures are encouraged to have fun.

“[BCK Kitchen & Cocktail Adventures] is for your 9-year-old kid or your 70-year-old grandma,” said Matt Sharp, the restaurant’s bar director and a business partner. With vinyl record sleeves and cassette tapes affixed to the walls and a room for storing board games, Sharp said the 933 Studewood St., Houston, restaurant reflects his and his co-owners’ goal of creating a gathering place for families and friends.

“We really want it to be just a fun neighborhood spot that’s approachable for everybody and non-pretentious,” Sharp said. “There’s enough bowties and suspenders down the way.”

Weekend brunch, taco Tuesdays, steak Wednesdays and a movie night dubbed cinematic Sunday give BCK patrons reasons to become regulars, Sharp said.

“If you want come in, sit at the bar, have a drink, our goal is to have the bartender know your name,” he said.

The menu includes takes on SpaghettiOs, macaroni and cheese, Hamburger Helper and other meals from his and the owners’ childhoods. John Reed and Leslie Nguyen own BCK as well as the Galleria-area Whiskey bar and restaurant Bosscat Kitchen & Libations. Sharp said the team had been eyeing the Heights for a while. In fact, the restaurant began in California but relocated its headquarters to Houston in 2017.

“We were looking at Austin but we fell in love with Houston and the Heights especially, and the rest is history,” he said.

With roots now planted in Houston, Sharp said he and his partners signed two more leases in the area and are considering an Arizona location. Sharp and his family however, live down the street from BCK.

“’We want to say, ‘Hey we’re embedded here and we’re not going anywhere,’” he said.
