Montrose is going to have to find a new place to party. Lotti Dotti announced on social media that it will close after service on Friday, November 22.
Reasons for the closure aren't clear from the post. General manager Michael Riojas declined CultureMap's request to comment on the specific reasons for the decision.
The bar opened in June as a reworking of the Brooklyn Athletic Club space. Named for a Slick Rick song, Lotti Dotti featured a short menu of food items created by chef Adam Dorris (Pax Americana, Presidio) and cocktails by Riojas that took their names from different pieces of Houston trivia: Slime in the Ice Machine, Pain Don't Hurt, Be Someone, Mayan Mind Bender, etc.
It’s with a heavy heart and due to unforeseen circumstances that I must inform you that tomorrow will be our last day of service. It’s been super fun and we thank everyone that came and partied with us. Good news is tomorrow all cocktails, wine and booze will be $5. So if you didn’t get a chance to come see us, then tomorrow is your shot and you’ll be getting a deal. Thanks Montrose for being an amazing home for us. Normal hours 3pm-2am. Come through and show your appreciation to the staff! #weliketoparty #onelastride

With an appealing mix of draft and frozen cocktails and a winning food selection — the burger earned frequent raves — Lotti Dotti seemed poised for success. Instead, it's closing after less than six months in business. Montrose will be a little less fun without it, but tonight's goodbye with all drinks at $5 each should be a memorable way to bid the bar farewell.
