VIPs Spin into Downtown's New Record-Store Speakeasy for Grand Opening Soiree

REALITY STARS, SPORTS legends and music-industry types moved and grooved at a grand-opening bash for Downtown's newest speakeasy-style bar.


Off the Record welcomed dozens of VIPs to its vinyl-store-slash-listening-lounge, located in the former Bovine & Barley space on Main. Nightlife veterans Jason Lowery and Steve Rogers and their co-owners David Anderson III and Mikos Adams greeted the stylish crowd, who enjoyed craft cocktails and beats courtesy of DJ Vanilla Trill while exploring the space.

The concept was inspired by George's Music Room, a Chicago institution owned by Anderson's uncle George Daniels, who was on hand this evening. Tucked behind the stacks of vinyls at Off the Record is a wraparound bar and an upstairs lounge called, of course, George's Music Room. Up here, framed photos of Daniels with legends like Lenny Kravitz and Destiny's Child adorn the walls, and guests can kick back and vibe out to curated tunes.

Attendees included Love Is Blind's Izzy Zapata and Uche Okoroha, along with fellow reality stars Rachel Evans (The Circle) and Washington Ho (House of Ho); former Houston Texans Owen Daniels and Earl Mitchell; media personalities Vanessa Richardson, Maggie McKethan, Melanie Camp, Michael Garfield, Natalie Harms and many others.

At 9pm, the doors opened to the public, and an excited crowd filtered into the intimate space to keep the party going.

“We wanted to bring something new to Houston, and we couldn’t be more excited to open these doors,” Adams said. “Houston is such a melting pot, and this is a place where we can all come together around our love of music, cocktails and good times.”

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
