Morgan Weber

Years of Participation

Morgan Weber—musician, farmer, real estate developer, bartender—worked in a variety of industries before finding his true passion as a restaurant and bar owner. After studying to be a studio jazz musician at Baylor University, Morgan negotiated high profile real estate acquisitions at Metro for their new rail lines. After discovering craft cocktails, Morgan connected with fellow Houstonian Bobby Heugel, and together they and partners opened Anvil Bar & Refuge, Houston's first bar dedicated to classic cocktails in 2009.

By the time Anvil opened, Morgan had been spending more time at his family farm in Yoakum and decided to part with Anvil and invest his earnings back into the farm and raise pigs. In 2011, Chef Ryan Pera and Morgan partnered to open Revival Market, which has since evolved into a full-service breakfast and lunch restaurant and butcher shop.

The success of Revival prompted the duo to open Italian restaurant Coltivare, where Morgan developed the cocktail menu, in 2014. Once he ran out of room for bourbon on the back bar at Coltivare, the idea for Eight Row Flint, aptly named after the variety of corn first used in American whiskey, was born. Eight Row Flint was named one of the best new bars in the country by Playboy in 2016.
In 2018, the Agricole Hospitality team opened Night Heron, a neighborhood restaurant; Vinny’s for pizza by the slice or pie; Indianola, a modern American restaurant; and Miss Carousel cocktail bar.
