In the 60’s the continental club changed its venue to burlesque.  In the late 70’s the venue changed again to featuring Stevie Ray Vaughn, Joe Eli, The Cobra’s and Kinky Freedman. In 87, ownership changed and the club was upgraded.

In 2000 the club moved to its current location and was named one of the best bars in America by Playboy.
