A new Houston-themed bar and restaurant will take the place of Owl Bar, which closed last year, at 2221 W. Alabama St., on Jan. 23. Eighteen36, a name that references the city's founding year, will operate on the first floor of the property, with Roadster Grill, a Greek-American restaurant was based in Bellaire until 2017, on the second floor. Owners Jason Scheinthal and Jake Stein remodeled the space to offer a variety of seating, a new patio with covered areas and an outdoor fireplace. The remodel also includes a drive-through window for to-go orders from the kitchen. A grand opening event is set for Feb. 7. “As a sixth-generation Houstonian with a true passion for the hospitality industry, I could not be more excited to open our doors to the public,” said Jason Scheinthal, owner of Eighteen36, in a news release. www.bar1836.com
