Rich's 2401 San Jacinto

Recommended Posts

There was a thread for this property started by me in either 2016 or 2017. Since the error of a mod banning my account and deleting over five years worth of content from me, everything I contributed to this forum is gone. I was able to retrieve and save some things, but most of it is gone, including the thread for this property (sans one post made September 2019, a few weeks before all of my posts were "accidentally" deleted). I'll try to repost as much of the previous content I can remember (mostly Loopnet listings, archives and articles), but comments from other members and their photos won't be reposted.

2401 Fannin has been Limelight club and Rich's club over the years. During those times, the building and the property it stands upon has been on the market ( for sale) off and on since the mid to late 2000's (maybe before that, I don't know for sure).

The previous thread included an old Loopnet listing (either from 2016 or 2017)  for 2401 San Jacinto included  photos inside the building. I wasn't able to find on Google cache (and I didn't save it) and and couldn't find the archive link for the old listing. The only for sale listing I could find was from earlier this year, which was updated in August before the listing was removed in early October.

This was in the previous thread for Rich's | 2401 San Jacinto . It's being reposted / reupped since the original thread and other content from me were removed.

As posted in the Montrose thread, Rich's is closing at 2401 San Jacinto. It's relocating to Montrose.

Previous post about it.

Houston nightlife is getting another big shakeup.
 

Rich's nightclub owner Jeff Harmon announced earlier this week that "after many months of negotiations and very careful consideration of my family, my staff and our business that we are returning to Montrose."
 

There are few specifics, but Harmon says he plans to "rejuvenate and restore a very familiar venue." The announcement was made in a Facebook post. Requests for additional information went unanswered.
 

As expected, social media went into overdrive trying to determine where Rich's would land. The two most popular guesses? South Beach at 810 Pacific or Numbers at 300 Westheimer. A spokesperson for each club denied those claims.
 

Neither option makes much sense. South Beach has been under renovation for more than a year and plans to reopen soon under the same name. Numbers is still going strong and celebrates its 41st anniversary Oct. 5.
 

The former location of F Bar, 202 Tuam, makes more sense. That club closed in 2017 and has been currently operating as Mynt. That venue's social media accounts have not been updated in a long time.

Also, the Facebook post never specifically states that the new venue will open as Rich's, just that "many of your favorite bartenders, support staff, DJ's and entertainers will return to a once wildly popular address."

Was hanging out at Barb's last night for a couple hours. This one had a line out the door and nearly lined around the block. Of course that's Halloween for ya, but thats a good sign I think. I'll have to check it out.
