Rick's Cabaret "Club Onyx" In Houston Gears For Possible Record Week During NBA All-Star 2006 Event
(February 7, 2006)
- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc.
, says it anticipates a record business volume at its Club Onyx gentlemen's club during the
NBA All-Star 2006 Week
in Houston from February 13-20. The company's
Cabaret nightclubs in Houston are also expected to benefit from increased traffic during the week leading up to the NBA All-Star game.
Since its opening in 2004 in the
shopping district as an upscale cabaret catering to urban businessmen and professionals, Club Onyx (3113 Bering Drive at Richmond) has been a favorite nightspot of Houston sports fans and athletes.
"Club Onyx has attracted professional athletes by the dozens since we opened," according to
, President and CEO of Rick's. "They like being in an environment where the other customers give them plenty of space and don’t hassle them for autographs."
Mr. Langan said the company believes it will show a significant revenue increase for the Houston clubs in February as a result of the NBA All-Star activities, adding that Rick's Cabaret clubs in Houston "did very well when Houston hosted the
Super Bowl XXXVIII
MLB All-Star Game
in 2004, and we anticipate doing as well or better during the NBA week since basketball fans are great customers and
is only a 10 minute drive from the club."
NBA All-Star week is a weeklong basketball extravaganza culminating in the annual all-star game on Sunday, February 19th that will pack Toyota Center and be seen by a worldwide television audience that reaches more than 200 countries.
Club Onyx was launched after the company's management decided to take its highly successful upscale gentlemen's format into one of the fastest growing but underserved demographic segments – the universe of highly successful and increasingly affluent urban males. The club opened June 10, 2004 at the remodeled 12,800 square foot site of the original Rick's Cabaret nightclub.
