Dua Lipa partied at a Houston dive bar before her Toyota Center concert

2 min read

British singer-songwriter Dua Lipa is just like us: She loves a dive bar.

While in Houston on tour this week, Lipa visited Poison Girl, a Montrose cocktail bar that’s a favorite for late-night party-goers. There she posted a series of photos on Instagram with the caption “has a special affinity for a dive bar.”

The social media posts show Lipa, who’s performing at the Toyota Center on March 12, posing in front of Poison Girl’s pinball and arcade machines and enjoying the photobooth in a see-through, full-body star-patterned number.

Poison Girl’s pink façade on Westheimer is well-known by locals. The bar specializes in whiskey of all kinds, serves killer cocktails and has a lively patio in the back.

During her stop, Lipa also visited the Rothko Chapel in Montrose, according to a photo posted on the institution’s Instagram account, where she was seen posing with Thuy M. Tran, the chapel’s director of advancement, and Will Davison, manager of communications and visitor engagement.

Poison Girl reposted Lipa’s photos on Instagram. We reached out for comment, including on what she ordered. The request was not returned at press time, but her post of the bar’s sign declaring “I ♥ Cold Beer” might be a hint. This story will be updated with more details should they come in.

In the meantime, Lipa has one more night left in Houston before her show on Saturday. Will she visit another dive bar, perhaps the equally great Grand Prize in Montrose? Anvil Bar & Refuge down the street from Poison Girl?

Or will she spring for one of our swankier establishments, such as Bar No. 3, the new cocktail bar inside the uber-fancy La Colombe d’Or hotel? Either way, we hope Lipa will let us know on her Instagram stories so we can join the party.
