The folks behind Moon Tower Inn and Voodoo Queen recently brought H-Town another concept—Love Buzz. The part bar, part pizzeria concept is situated in Montrose, paying homage to the ’80s and ’90s in an eclectic mix of pop culture memorabilia and decor.
On any given night, guests will find Sonic Youth and Nirvana playing on the jukebox, which is fitting since the bar takes its name from Kobain’s cover of the ’60s rock song. The team tapped H-Town artist Shelby Hohl to create a splashy mural that lives alongside skeeball games and a creepy Ronald McDonald statue, not far from a life-size figure of Marge and Maggie Simpson.
Beyond the kitschy decor, customers will find a decent mix of canned craft brew, draught options and a handful of featured drinks, perfect to pair with offerings from the bar’s resident pizza joint, Nice Slice pizza. Bonus: Guests can enjoy a free slice of cheese pizza with a draught beer or cocktail purchase from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Love Buzz is open daily from 11 a.m. to 3:45 a.m.
