Chapman & Kirby is a GastroLounge and Premium Event space located in East Downtown Houston in a two block entertainment district called East Village.
Chapman & Kirby is a gastrolounge and premium event space located in East Downtown Houston. The business is named after the founders of Houston (brothers Augustus Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen) and its design, menu and concept draw inspiration from the city’s rich history of growth. Chapman & Kirby’s management team comprises four accomplished entrepreneurs with over 50 years of combined experience in owning, operating and leading food & beverage development for high-profile restaurants, bars and event venues located throughout Greater Houston.
Chapman & Kirby is an anchor tenant in a new 60,000 square foot mixed-use project called East Village in Houston’s edgy East Downtown.
With over 9,000 square feet of space (including a 1,000 square foot outdoor terrace), Chapman & Kirby is designed to transition seamlessly from a daily dinner spot to a festive evening and weekend destination. It also serves as a high-end venue for corporate and private events.
Chapman & Kirby is open for dinner Wednesday - Saturday, and the bar is open into the evenings to provide an upscale, relaxing experience for its patrons. Conveniently located in East Downtown, Chapman & Kirby is able to serve the downtown business crowds as well as the increasing residential community in East Downtown. The goal is to provide a diverse array of customers with a beautifully designed space for meetings and getaways at all times of the day.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, the venue is flipped into a chic lounge to host Houston’s nightlife scene. Various Midtown bars and nightlife venues that are currently popular in Houston are less than two miles away, and the Chapman team believes that Chapman & Kirby can anchor a growing movement towards East Downtown.
The space at Chapman & Kirby is also designed to host private social events and corporate gatherings. The Chapman team's experience in developing and managing private event spaces like Hughes Hangar and The Astorian informs its ability to leverage the design and flow of Chapman & Kirby’s physical space to best serve this growing market.
Houston recently surpassed New York City as the most diverse city in America, with more nations and ethnicities represented than in any other city in the country. The Chapman & Kirby food and beverage menu celebrates the cultural depth and heritage of Houston, while also striving for a wholesome, close-to-farm concept.
