Leon's Lounge closes (temporarily, we hope)

Leon's Lounge, a watering hole with a cool crowd in Midtown for almost 60 years, is temporarily closing up shop for a few months.

Houston Press reports that Scarlett Yarborough, daughter of original owner Leon Yarborough, is in talks to sell the bar to Under The Volcano owner Pete Mitchell. Mitchell has promised the regulars and staff no major changes to the set up despite the long overhaul period. On hand Saturday night to say a temporary farewell to Leon's? Local band du jour The Tontons, who played to a packed back room.
