If you’re ready to have a fun night on the town, Texas Rodeo Saloon is set to offer dinner, drinks, and dancing in the space of the former Alamo Drafthouse in Katy in late 2023. Owner Perry Thomson has been working on the dancehall project for the past two years and picked up the keys to the building just last week.
Guests at Texas Rodeo Saloon will be enjoy live music and a DJ while dancing on a Texas-sized dance floor. “It’s got the largest dance floor in all of Harris County. It’s 4,500-square-feet. It’s got a seven-piece band. All the musicians are a house band that are well-versed on music and entertainment,” Thomson explained.
Texas Rodeo Saloon goers can also enjoy one-of-a-kind concerts with national and local bands. Thomson told What Now Houston he does not plan to have a cover charge unless a national act is performing.
The space at 531 S Mason Rd. in Katy will feature four full bars for bottled and draft beer, as well as mixed drinks. The restaurant will offer more than 75 scratch-made menu items including shareable appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, and more.
The old Alamo Drafthouse projector room will be transformed into VIP areas for bottle service. A 4,000-square-foot patio will give guests a chance to spend time under huge oak trees and the Texas stars.
“The direction we’re going is that you can come to Texas Rodeo Saloon, and you can eat, you can hang out on the patio, you can dance,” Thomson told What Now Houston. “That’s what everybody wants to do is have fun.”
Thomson is no stranger to the business with several decades of experience in the industry. He has owned multiple bars and in addition to his latest venture, Thomson continues to operate a dueling piano bar in New Braunfels. He is ready to open Texas Rodeo Saloon to those looking to have some fun. “I’m excited about doing it.”
