Chicken Coop

An often controversial Houston bar from 1981 to 1986,
catering sometimes to a hustler crowd.
Its chicken and dollar sign logo seemed to spell things out.


But, Wait....there were two clubs in that location prior to Chicken Coop
Cesar's Palace landed at the end of 1979...

   

and then in October 1980 morphed into Fame Disco

  

looks like it had a "back room"....not sure how that was defined

   

and gave up the ghost by the end of 1980...
but Chicken Coop was ready to go in January
