Johnny's Gold Brick

Justin Ware is representing the whole crew at Johnny’s Gold Brick, a cocktail bar in the Heights where he was the general manager before stepping into a company wide operations role. Justin started his career in the kitchen, working at Soma Sushi before he realized he liked talking to people too much. After stints at notable Houston cocktail bars like Julep, Justin became the first general manager of Johnny’s Gold Brick in 2017 and under his leadership, and then the leadership of the managers and bartenders who followed him, Johnny’s grew into the beloved neighborhood craft cocktail bar that you all know and love. Since its inception, Johnny’s has become an integral part of the heights with a rotating menu of monthly original cocktails, fun events and epic Christmas Pop-Up. Johnny’s has been nominated for multiple awards including Best Bar in Houston from Culturemap, Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards, and winning Bar Fight Club. We used to have a cat named Batman, but he died. Justin and the whole crew at Johnny’s can’t wait to make some drinks for y’all.
