Houston’s latest Bacco-branded wine venue Bacco’s Wine Garden has begun its takeover of 3611 Montrose Blvd. by adding this corral to the house’s front parking lot, although nothing’s being consumed on site yet; a TABC application is still pending approval. Now enclosed within the pen: the gable-roofed sign once colored by the logo for Tony’s Place, the homeless center for LGBT youth under 26 that relocated last summer to a Midtown space it shares with the Salvation Army’s own youth shelter on McGowen St.
On the north side of the building, Bacco’s’s own sign is now up:
Along with Bacco on the Bayou — the N. Braeswood location that opened in an ex-dry-cleaners just a few weeks ago after jumping the gun last year on renovations — and the original Bacco Wine and Spirits on Dinacns St. just north of West U., the Montrose location will be the third of its kind.
