About the Group

Born and bred in Los Angeles, fraternal twins Mark and Jonnie Houston have cornered a niche market of high-end, nightlife hot spots. The duo launched Piano Bar in 2008—followed in short order by La Descarga, Harvard & Stone, Pour Vous, No Vacancy, Dirty Laundry and Good Times at Davey Wayne’s. And now, they have launched their first restaurant Butchers & Barbers on iconic Hollywood Boulevard. Each establishment is a transportation of space and time, all engineering a unique experience. The Houstons will continue this legacy with a string of upcoming projects where they will continue to redefine the hospitality landscape in Los Angeles and beyond.
