Great news for those who've missed Vizo's African Bar and Restaurant in Lubbock. The popular restaurant serving up African cuisine, cocktails and great customer service is reopening in Lubbock in the not too distant future.

Vizo's African Bar and Restaurant is reportedly eyeing the final week of June to reopen. They'll have a new location that many in Lubbock are already familiar with. Vizo's will now be located 3131 34th Street. That address is where the former Crafthouse Gastropub was located.

It has to feel good for Vizo's owners to see the journey from closing way back in November 2021 to finding a new location finally after months of trying. We last reported in March that Vizo's saw huge success, then hard times:

Vizo's was the only African restaurant of its kind in Lubbock and the staff was always glad to make a recommendation. In 2020, Forbes released a list of the Top 100 Places to Eat In the United States and Vizo's came in at number 99. /

In November 2021, Vizo's suddenly announced that they would be closing temporarily. They said that they would be back at the beginning of the new year. That had a lot of fans worried, but relieved that Vizo's would eventually return.

With today's news about the reopening and the new location, it should really breathe some life and momentum for the Texas Tech alum's who want to bring a whole different experience to Lubbock.

Personally, I can't wait until Vizo's opens in June. And the new location will help as well I believe. Congratulations to Vizo's for finally finding their new location!
