“To be a homegrown concept that’s in the heart of the River Walk is something my team and I are extremely proud about,” Martinez said

The bar owner said the venue has two floors, but the top level won’t be open until Labor Day weekend, September 4-5. Martinez added that he’s confident the top level will take the House of Smoke experience to a whole other level. He said he chose the House of Smoke name because he wanted the venue to tell the story of the company.
