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, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s, their first restaurant Butchers and Barbers and an 80's oasis, Break Room 86 at The Line Hotel. 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.

But something either went horribly awry or blissfully correct. Today, the fraternal twins operate seven establishments—including Harvard & Stone, Pour Vous, La Descarga, and the […]
