HOUSTON– (Realty News Report) – Tom’s Watch Bar, a sports viewing and entertainment location, is opening in the GreenStreet mixed-use center in downtown Houston.
Tom’s Watch Bar leased 6,149 SF in GreenStreet, a project owned by Lionstone Investments in a joint venture with institutional investors and Midway, a Houston firm.
Located across from House of Blues, on the corner of Polk Street and Caroline Street, it will be the first Tom’s Watch Bar in Houston and its eighth location nationwide.
“Tom’s Watch Bar is excited to bring our premier viewing experience with personalized sound options, big drinks, and great food to Houston’s sports fans,” said Tom Ryan, Co-Founder of Tom’s Watch Bar.
The sports entertainment experience features collegiate, professional and international sports, major events, prize fights, on a central oversized stadium screen paired with hundreds of additional screens.
Chris Seckinger, Vice President, Investment & Development at Midway, said: “Their unique and immersive sports viewing experience will be the perfect place for Houston sports fans to enjoy watching their favorite teams. We are confident Tom’s Watch Bar will feel right at home in GreenStreet, just steps away from the Houston Sports Walk of Fame and walking distance to Minute Maid Park and the Toyota Center.”
GreenStreet with its flagship tower and four-city-block span, GreenStreet is a mixed-use district unlike any other downtown. GreenStreet’s 420,000 SF of office space, diamond-level Life Time Athletic and Life Time Work, and AT&T SportsNet broadcast studio are complemented with world-class hospitality with a 223-key luxury boutique hotel, live entertainment at House of Blues, a collection of casual and fine-dining restaurants, and art installations and free events on The Lawn.
Recently, AES Corporation, a Fortune 500 global energy company, is opening a 12,500-SF office at GreenStreet, a mixed-use development covering several blocks in downtown Houston. The AES lease is a positive sign for the downtown Houston office market.
The downtown office market has a vacancy rate of 27.6 percent, according to a first quarter 2022 report from Avison Young. The firm reported downtown had negative absorption of 134,813 SF in the first quarter.
