Sparrow Bar + Cookshop does local + global

Our focus is on Houston’s best local and regional ingredients in combination with Chef Monica Pope’s global travels and influences. Our menu changes daily, based on availability and seasonality, and our beverage program expertly crafted by Marc Borel mirrors that. So for now, what we'll tell you is that you can expect good food, good drink, and good company, and that we really hope that you enjoy it. This is our home, and we'd like to see your face. 

Want more of Monica Pope? Join or create a cooking class, host an event, bring the Cookshop home, take a Houston culinary tour, or check out our sister restaurant, Beaver’s.

Cooking Classes

Chef Monica offers a variety of in-house or on-site cooking classes.

Tuesday Farmer's Market Cooking Class

Have you ever wanted to take a cooking class? Now's your chance! 

Chef Monica Pope will lead a cooking class focused on what was available from the farmer's market that day. But she's not doing all the work - you'll participate in cooking two dishes. You'd better be good at it, because you'll also be sampling what you cook! 

If you'd like to stay after the class for dinner, we'll buy you a glass of bubbles with your entree to celebrate your graduation (reservations are required for after class dinner).

This one hour class includes all the tools, food and tax, does not include beverages, and gratuity.
