The Continental Club opened in the late 1950s as a classy night club in Texas. Liquor wasn’t sold at the start, you had to supply your own. In the 1960s it welcomed burlesque. In the 1970s, a partnership took over and booked live acts. Stevie Ray Vaughan is one of the names that have graced the clubs funky stage.
In the 1980s, the current owner acquired the venue and restored the club to its original look. In 2000, the Continental Club relocated to its present home on Main Street in Houston, TX. The club carried its original charm and funk over to Main Street.
I drove past the club and had to turn back and get a closer look. Tell me, isn’t this sign just beautiful? I had a moment standing outside gripping on to my camera seeing things glow on and off. Marketing classes teach that flashing lights are a way for your business to attract attention. The Continental Club could easily teach a course on attracting attention. It had my undivided attention.
