Former star of The Bachelor and Austin bar mogul Brad Womack is ready to open Dogwood Houston: The renovations — including a second-story patio to give the drinkers a view of the skyline — to the former Post Edge Mailing Services building at 2403 Bagby are nearing completion, according to the bar’s Facebook page; Dogwood will be the first foray into Houston by the man who once dumped Emily Maynard over the phone; he’s part of Austin’s Carmack Concepts, which runs Sixth St. bars Chuggin’ Monkey, Dizzy Rooster, Molotov, and, of course, Dogwood.

According to a February 28 post on Dogwood Houston’s Facebook page, the bar (shown in the photo directly above from Bagby St. near the Metro Midtown Apartments) is expected to open by mid-March. But Dogwood, adds Eater Houston’s Eric Sandler, is just one of 3 bars opening in Midtown this spring. The other two will be Worhals Midtown at 2016 Main St. and Capitol Bar at 2415 Main St., which opens tonight.
