Description: Inspired by American hotel lobbies and European cafes of the 1920s, Prohibition Supperclub & Bar is situated in the historic ISIS Theatre by the Theatre District in downtown Houston. We specialize in nostalgic and decadent cuisine with new takes on American classics, seafood and downtown's only raw bar of fresh oysters and crudo. Combined with an extensive bar program of classic cocktails, large selection of single malts, whiskeys, bottled craft beer, and boutique wines, we offer a unique destination for dinner or special events. Reserve your table then stay late for a great bar scene! Originally built in 1912, this space holds significance to Houston's history as Houston's first theatre. Paying tribute to this, Prohibition will continue to use this space as its very own theatre room & special events space. Many of the original artifacts and wall plasters dating back to 1912 have been retained, which provides for a unique space and will be Prohibition's main banquet hall, perfect for hosting live performances, weddings, theatre events, as well as corporate events...Limitless celebrations in a multifunctional space.

We were so excited to try the Oyster Bar at Prohibition. We arrived early (when we called we were told they do not accept reservations) and there was plenty of availability. After being seated and ordering drinks we decided to order dinner. No problem with oysters but two of the four of us ordered the fish and chips. We were soon advised that they were out of fish! The only thing available other than oysters was sandwiches, lasagne and calamari. The online menu showed MANY options - none of which were available in actuality. The waiter felt no need to apologize for the lack of food and began to recommend other nearby restaurants. The drinks were expensive and we ended up spending over $100 for drinks and a couple of appetizers. We will not be returning. And by the way, when I tried to leave a comment on their website I was consistently told "wrong code" even though I was typing in the EXACT code listed. So obviously they do not want to hear from their customers.

Was quite the surprise that this was the 1920’s Gatsby place with a 2018 twist. Super fun. One of those places you just have to try

This is an entertaining burlesque dinner theater in an old silent film theater in old Houston. The evening theme was the roaring 20's. The theater space is intimate (there is a small balcony area too) and the actors are very interactive with the entire space, not just the front row. There is not a bad table in the house and no one is immune from being "paid attention to" by the actors. Don't be frightened by the "burlesque" theme. There was no full nudity, pasties were worn by the female dancers and there was no "below the waist" nudity. I would be comfortable taking my 80 year old parents. But if a person tends toward the conservative/prudish side the humor would. It be for them. There is some raunchy humor and baudiness and plenty of laughs. Hooting and hollering are encouraged and patrons are pulled on the stage to "perform." Food was surprisingly good and the portions were plentiful enough. After the show you can hang out in the (oyster) bar attached to the theater. My 2 complaints were the pre-show music was too loud (couldn't hear waiter or people at the table) and the chairs are not comfortable at all.
