Foo Fighters are no strangers to tributes, but this is likely a first.
Per Eater Houston, local Houston restaurant UB Preserv will be closing on December 23. In January 2022, the hospitality group Underbelly Hospitality will reopen the restaurant under the name Everlong Bar & Hideaway, a tribute to the newly inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band.
Eater Houston notes, “Everlong will take inspiration from the Foo Fighters, ‘with crossover appeal but pushing boundaries at the same time.’ Expect a cocktail-focused menu with a small wine list and a tight selection of beers. Drinks will include old-school (but trendy once more) ‘80s and ‘90s cocktails like Cosmos, espresso martinis, and a much-maligned classic, the Long Island iced tea.”
The outlet adds, “Food-wise, expect a few of Hay Merchant’s most popular dishes, including the braised Korean goat dumplings and the muffuletta sandwich.” (Hay Merchant is another restaurant owned by Underbelly Hospitality that recently closed.)
Additionally, “Everlong will also offer a brand new hamburger, plus other snacks and shareable dishes. A few of Hay Merchant’s events will also carry over, including trivia night, but Everlong will be a completely different bar than Hay Merchant.”
The band has yet to comment on the new restaurant, but considering their penchant for stunts, it sure would be cool of them to show up the next time a tour stop hits Houston.
