Tim Love’s burger empire has been reduced by one. About a year after closing his Love Shack in the West 7th area, a statement released today from the ownership group announced that the Bluebonnet Circle location would soon be shuttered. Love’s management team will no longer operate the Oui Lounge.
The press release says that the landlord and Love couldn’t agree on a direction for the place:
“The Landlord of Oui Lounge and Love Shack have agreed to split ways after they could not agree on the direction for the space,” the statement says. “It was a mutually beneficial parting of ways. The Landlord and Oui Lounge Partners are excited about the new management structure and optimistic we will bring a great energy back to The Oui Lounge and Bluebonnet Circle. 3509 Consulting will begin operating The Oui Lounge July 1st. They are currently in discussions with multiple restaurant operators and will have an announcement concerning the restaurant very soon.”
Last Call scribe Steve Steward had his own thoughts on the direction of the Oui Lounge.
