About Boheme
Drawing inspiration from over 20 years of traveling, owner and Houston Native, Morgan Holleman, carefully crafted this neighborhood bar to showcase the art, culture, and flavors he most adored from around the world. Boheme’s refurbished historical building is nestled in the quaint and lively Montrose area and is surrounded by a 6,000-square-foot garden adorned with Shona stone sculptures from Zimbabwe. Inside, authentic steel-frame windows, original brick walls, cozy couches, and antique light fixtures from Germany, France and England grace the space with a subtle old world vibe.  Boheme is a place where every Houstonian can feel worlds away or right at home.
