• The Eldorado Ballroom was owned by African-American businesswoman Anna Dupree who wanted to establish a "class" venue for black social clubs & general entertainment.

• From 1939, when it was built till the early 1970s it was the center of one of the most remarkable musical communities in America. It was the venue of choice for upscale blues and jazz performances

• Internationally recognized musicians such as Etta James, Count Basie, Ray Charles, James Brown, Tina Turner, B.B. King, & home grown successes like Sam "Lightning" Hopkins, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, & Joe Hughes all lived & performed within a few blocks of each other.

• Like the more famous Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, the Eldorado Ballroom billed itself as the "Home of Happy Feet"—signifying its reputation for having a large and crowded dance floor that attracted the best dancers in the city of Houston.

We look forward to you joining us at this historical dance venue every 2nd Saturday!
