When people think of Killeen, Texas I wouldn’t say that sophisticated is one of the words that would be used.

More than likely you’re going to use words like military, vibrant, and maybe even fun, but I think it’s only appropriate now that we put the word sophisticated in the description when you speak about Killeen, and we have the LUXX Martinis and Jazz Bar to thank for that.

Earlier this week, owner and operator of the Hangover Bar and Grill Tonya Williams announced that she and her partners Jesse Cepero and Brianna Valdes will be opening this amazing spot very soon.

When I spoke to one of the owners, she explained to me that this establishment will be specifically for the grown and sexy with a twist of upscale romance.

The LUXX Martinis and Jazz Bar is going to be located at 3701 S. WS Young inside the Shilo Inn where there will be craft martinis, a cigar lounge, and a full-service restaurant. Killeen has plenty of things for the younger crowd to enjoy, but Cepero, Valdez, and Williams most definitely understood the assignment when it came to making sure that a more mature crowd was taken care of.

These entrepreneurs wanted to give the city a touch of class and I personally couldn’t be more excited to have my first martini in this establishment!

A statement was put out that the owners are very excited to bring a new and innovative experience a Central Texas. The mission is to create excitement and a sexy, elegant feeling when you walk through their doors.

These ladies hit every single mark that was needed going into this establishment, even providing breakfast in the morning and a full menu for dinner.

The owners say that during weekends you can expect sounds of live jazz, blues, and soft R&B flowing through the room whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, hosting a business dinner/meeting, or simply enjoying a night out. They will create a memorable and safe evening, and they are looking forward to impressing all of Central Texas.

So make sure you don your classy outfit, get out of the house, and let’s have a classy night out. Cheers!
