Ivy Bar & Bistro, part of Fiori Spa’s expansion, is officially open. Experience Italian fare, unique drinks, and an upscale environment in Houston’s vibrant Galleria area.
Who wouldn’t want a luxurious spa, a comfortable pub, and delicious bistro all in the same place? Intimate and upscale, Ivy Bar & Bistro is an important part of Fiori Spa’s $2.5 million development. It offers guests the best of both worlds in an elegant brasserie and vibrant getaway for memorable evenings in the bustling Galleria neighborhood. Complete with posh French-inspired furnishings, floor-to-ceiling mirrors for excellent views, and a stunning crystal bar top, the vibrant new locale is situated close to the Galleria, but also far enough for a small getaway. The environment is accentuated by a variety of exclusive events: a live DJ on Thursday and Saturday nights, as well as a once a month Jazzy Sunday Brunch, featuring live jazz. The spacious lounge and patio are also available for private parties and bookings, with room to accommodate up to 82 guests. It’s a gorgeous backdrop for any event!
While Ivy’s distinctive look and location are eye-candy, it also offers delicious cuisine and a variety of beverages. Guests enjoy Italian recipes such as mouthwatering paninis and pasta dishes, plus desserts including sorbets and gelatos. Vegan and/or vegetarian options are also available, such as pizza made with a light cauliflower crust, soy cheese, and spicy Italian soy sausage. The Food and Beverage Manager is Tate Drennen, a local creative force well known for his work at Sterling House in Midtown and the clubby Lumen Lounge.
His craft cocktails are chock full of uniqueness: Rock-A-Rye Baby (dubbed “the world’s most delicious Old Fashioned”); the exotic Divine Goddess, made with Zephyr gin, Saint Germain, smoked rosemary and fresh lemon; the sophisticated French 43 with Anestasia vodka, Licor 43, fresh grapefruit and Jacquart Brut Mosaique champagne; and the witty Lime & Thyme Again, a classic skinny margarita with lime and thyme tincture, are all house specialties.
In addition to Ivy, the expansion boasts upgrades including Fiori’s seven new massage rooms; a second outdoor swimming pool; new rooftop sundeck and remodeled garden area; expanded state-of-the-art ladies’ locker room; and a full-service hair salon, Attitudes Paris Coiffure. It is a special place, where guests can experience a multitude of amenities all in one stop.
Experience Ivy’s vibrant community and environment, open Monday-Wednesday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Thursday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
