HOUSTON A legendary bar in River Oaks is re-opening under new ownership.

Marfreless shut down two and a half months ago when the original owner said he could no longer afford the rent.

The make-out bar was known for its unmarked blue door and lack of windows.

Here s the announcement from

We are thrilled to announce our reopening this summer at our same 2006 Peden location in River Oaks. Although we will be under new ownership, we promise the same unique atmosphere, premium menu, friendly staff, and neighborhood charm.

All this comes with a complete renovation - from wires and carpet to the furniture you... sit on. You can expect an updated feel with the same Marfreless experience you ve come to love. And don t worry, our upstairs seating and iconic blue door will remain.
