Originally End Zone Sports Bar and Grill, Houston Sports Hub is the moniker that Jon Taffer chose to give the rebranded bar.
When he first got there, Jon witnessed a fight between two “muscle-bound meatheads” during his usual recon mission. Never one to shy away from conflict, Jon decided to go ahead with the bar rescue and try to save this bar.
Houston Sports Hub Update - What Happened Next?
Today, Houston Sports Hub hub is still alive and kicking. They’ve kept the name Jon chose for them and appear to be doing well according to their Yelp page, though reviews are still less-than-steller (only 3-stars at the time of writing this update).
One of the owners, Justin Whitfield, also gave an interview to the Houston Chronicle.
In it, he has choice quotes such as “It was like a bar boot camp”. And while Juston thinks that Jon Taffer “is a really nice guy,” he still wouldn’t do it again because “I don’t like being yelled at. The yelling wasn’t so bad. It was the stress.”
So, I’m going to give this one a semi-success story. Despite the poor Yelp reviews, it still seems to be a popular Houston spot that’s doing well.
Most of the Yelp and TripAdvisor pages still sport the End Zone Bar and Grill designation, but reading the reviews assures me that they have indeed kept the Houston Sports Hub name.
