You may or may not know that a large part of the Houston Heights is considered a “dry” area. It’s a law that has been in place for a long, long time–even before prohibition. (A blog post HERE describes the history in greater detail.)
What you may not know is that there is a clause in the TABC code that notes that in dry areas, alcohol may be served to members of a private club with the correct license. We have one of these licenses, and as such in order to purchase alcohol at Down House you must become a member of our private club.
What does this mean to you? It’s simple: Your server or bartender will ask for your drivers license, and he or she will “swipe” you into the club. The information goes only to TABC and to us, and we will not (and cannot, legally) use your information for marketing or advertising or anything other than keeping records of our club members.
If you have any other questions about our private club license, please feel free to contact us at info(at)downhousehouston.com
