A new bar is set to replace a Houston Street staple in downtown Fort Worth.

Houston Street Bar and Patio announced in mid-May that the establishment was closing its doors at 902 Houston St. The bar, which opened in 2006, celebrated its final night on Tuesday with karaoke and one last cold beverage.

However, the building will not stay vacant long with a new tenant set to start remodeling work later this week.

A new bar called The Archibald is moving into the 902 Houston St. location and will begin two to three months of remodeling on Thursday, owner Keith Arias told the Star-Telegram.

Arias described The Archibald as having a bar setting that will update the Houston Street building, but keep it approachable. The rooftop bar, a major draw to the locale, will be renovated and remain a key feature of the venue just minutes from Sundance Square.

More information on The Archibald will be released over the next few months, Arias said. The plan is to open the new bar in late summer, around August.

“We’re so excited,” Arias said.
