Club Onyx Houston And The TABC
Club Onyx is one of the many RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. adult entertainment venues throughout Texas and the nation. Club Onyx Houston has had issues in the regarding allegations of serving an intoxicated person as well as other alcohol-related matters. We will highlight one of those allegations that occurred with the last two years.
There have been many stories that have circulated locally regarding the adult entertainment industry, especially regarding the extracurricular activities that some, not all, may allow to occur at their establishments. However, we just want to plainly and succinctly lay out the facts and circumstances regarding possible alcohol violations that may put patrons and motorists at risk due to irresponsible alcohol service.
Simply because a Club Onyx location has been investigated, it does not mean that they are a location that displays a pattern of violating TABC code. Conversely, if a location has been investigated and investigators determine that they are not in violation of TABC code, that does not mean that the alleged violation did not take place. At times, sufficient evidence required to prove that either criminal or administrative violations occurred is hard to come by. We are simply reporting the locations that were put on the TABC's radar for one reason or another by concerned citizens and law enforcement agencies.
Club Onyx Has Been Investigated by the TABC

TABC investigators looked into the several claims and determined that no further action was needed due to the lack of evidence that supports the claims made. This case was closed on 3/26/2016.
