Bar Bleu

Bar Bleu (2506 Robinhood St. near Rice Village) will officially open its doors on Friday with a "Red, White & Bleu"-themed party from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Complimentary champagne until 11 p.m., with music by DJ Senega all night long. Blue attire suggested. The 6,500-square-foot bar was recently completed after a $1 million remodeling of the former Hudson Lounge -- complete with a new custom-built mirrored DJ booth, LED lighted dance floor and vivid blue colors throughout (polished lacquered walls, plush sofas and fabrics, warm incandescent lighting, etc.). Bar Bleu will be open from Thursday-Saturday evenings beginning on July 7, with Happy Hour from 4-8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays. For bottle service and VIP table reservations, call: 713.906.5656
