Just beyond the grand and winding staircase, on the second floor of CityCentre’s new The Moran, is west Houston’s chic, new Euro-style Monnalisa bar. There, well-dressed young professionals flirt and mingle over potent, post-dinner cocktails.
The spot’s modern and upscale décor—which is marked by dark wood tones and sleek furniture—revolves around a dramatic, center-set fire pit and an assortment of glowing globes suspended from the ceiling.
At night, Monnalisa’s patio doors are opened providing guests access to the rooftop deck and glowing pool. From there, revelers can enjoy a birds-eye view of CityCentre’s central plaza and access to daybeds with draped cabanas and custom lanterns.
While you’re there, try the signature drink made with blackberry-infused vodka, along with the spots many other inventive libations.
