About The Historical Museum District Bistro
The Museum District Bistro and Lounge was built in 1922, by famous Houston architect Maurice Joseph Sullivan (1884-1961), Houston's first City Architect appointed by Mayor H. Baldwin Rice in 1912. This location served as the family home for Mr. Sullivan, his wife Anne, and their 7 children. By utilizing his training as a civil engineer, Sullivan continued to expand his knowledge and became a self taught architect. His ecclesiastic work completed in Houston is considered the most significant, and includes the Villa De Matel Chapel (1923-28), Holy Rosary Church (1933), St, Anne Catholic Church (1940), and First Presbyterian Church (1949). Other prominent buildings include The Petroleum Building (now the Great Southwest Building), Houston Negro Hospital School of Nursing (Now Riverside Hospital), St. Thomas High School, Ripley House, and St. Mary's Seminary. In 1924 and 1933, Sullivan served as President of the South Texas Chapter of The American Institute of Architects. Sullivan died in 1961.
"I am amazed at what Maurice Joseph Sullivan accomplished through his commitment and dedication. In that same spirit, I am proud to offer this location to honor and continue that legacy for Houston artists as an entertainment hub."-Larry Criswell Owner, Museum District Bistro and Lounge

It will take vision, leadership and a lot of passion, which EADN has all three. I am excited for Houston!" Kimberly N. Evans, CEO and Co-founder EADN
