Omar Afra, founder of Free Press Houston as well as the subsequent, sold a majority ownership of Lowbrow to Gary Mosley of the Creek Group according to Culturemap. The hip, low-key neighborhood bar is known for a creative menu, but also for poor service, which Mosley will address.

The Creek Group also owns and operates Onion Creek, Dry Creek, Cedar Creek and Canyon Creek. Afra offered a statement to Culturemap that explained, “ The constant growth growth and expansion of Lowbrow has created an opportunity to bring in time-tested operators to tighten up and polish service as Afra becomes more immersed in the year round job of producing FPSF. Big plans are in store with everything from menu to drink selection.” But one thing that won’t change, according to Afra are the “same sweet vibes” as before.
