Roots Wine Bar - 3107 Leeland St. (EaDo)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Coming soon signage for Roots Wine Bar is up in the windows at the small commercial building at 3107 Leeland St. This is a block or so southeast of East End Hardware.

This is the former location of Metamorphose Studios, a business that (I believe) was engaged in restoration and sale of antique furniture.

 

Swamplot article about the location from last year indicated that an alcohol permit had been applied for:

Given the font on the signage, is it safe to assume that this venture is related to Roost on Fairview?

They are supposedly (a friend of a friend told me) using the empty lot across the street for a parking lot (they are going to pave part of it)...not sure what that means for the townhomes/apartments that are supposed to be built in that lot though....

This business renovating the building at 3107 Leeland (Houston) was previously named The Wine House.


Swamplot wrote about it in September:

A reader tells Swamplot one of those TABC posters is up on the building at 3107 Leeland St., and the applicant it names: The Wine House, LLC. The last tenant Metamorphose Studios did double-duty in the 2,800-sq.-ft. space...

Also they changed their Instagram name. It was Wine House Eado and there was at least one post there last year, but it's been removed. So the Instagram account isn't new, it's been up since last year only the name has changed, creating a new url that broke their old url:

https://www.instagram.com/wine_house_eado/

There was also a Facebook page for it:

Thanks for the background info @CrockpotandGravel.

 

I didn’t even notice that the new entity name on the construction permit was different than that mentioned in the Swamplot article (with “House” vs. “Bar” being the only difference). But it seems to be the same group as far as you can tell, correct?

Yes. As posted above,  it's the same group or person as before. The name was changed from The Wine House to Root Wine Bar. I followed them last year on Instagram when the name was The Wine House. When I saw this post, I searched on Instagram and saw I was following them already, which meant the name changed.
