One of the city's most popular gay nightclubs is back.
Rich's in Midtown reopened in June 2016 with a whole new look. The megaclub on San Jacinto Street closed several years ago and was operated as Limelight until recently when a group of local partners took over the lease. At roughly 15,000 square feet it's the largest gay club in Houston.
When it debuted in the 1980s, Rich's was ahead of its time, introducing Houston to high-tech lighting and sound alongside larger-than-life music videos and a raucous dance floor. The new owners hope to bring that same cutting edge approach back to the scene. Theme nights include Latin and College nights each week as well as a Sunday Funday experience that kicks off at 5 pm.
