The ground floor of Four Seasons Hotel Houston was designed by New York-based firm, Meyer Davis to enhance the arrival experience for guests. Arabescato marble, smoky onyx and warm saddle leathers are used throughout the lobby, creating a comfortable gathering spot punctuated by a dramatic floating staircase. Fourth floor skylight windows flood the space with natural light. Located in the heart of the city, the space has been named “Houston’s Living Room.”

Bayou & Bottle, which spills out into the lobby, is the first Texas venture for Richard Sandoval Restaurants. This lively bar destination is a chic bourbon concept, serving over 125 varieties of bourbons and whiskeys. Guests can enjoy a drink, or a meal inspired by Houston's melting pot of cultures, from the comfort of Solo Bar Stool designed by Neri&Hu and crafted by De La Espada.
