REC ROOM Arts & Bar is a unique venue in downtown Houston where live performance and arts events of every sort are frequent, diverse, and accessible to all. We want our patrons to experience an enriching world beyond their couches in the actual company of others. (Gasp.)
Grab a drink at happy hour and stay for an evening of unconventional, out there, edgy, entertaining, laugh-outloud-til-you-cry, original work including but not limited to concerts, theatre, dance, comedy, podcasts, variety shows, and film screenings.
As artists, the work we develop seeks to experiment with and investigate the way we live now.
Live performance events shouldn’t be limited to holidays and special occasions. Rather, performance events should be frequent and built into the cultural fabric of a community.
At Rec Room, we believe live performance should be:
1. FUN. [Of course it should also be enlightening, interesting, artistically fulfilling, inspiring. It should make you want to leave and change the world, sure. BUT, it should always be fun.]
4. ACCESSIBLE (to all.)
9. HEART. LOTS OF HEART.
10. BAD ASS.
All performance events at Rec Room will strive toward these principles. Our programming will be frequent and diverse. We know our community is full of artists, thinkers, comedians, renegades, storytellers, innovators, creators, and bad asses.
Rec Room provides a space for these people to do what they do.
We are interested in artists who work to bend and break the rules of conventional performance.
Rec Room Arts supports the development of new work by inviting artists to propose, create, and present works of theatre, dance, music, opera, performance art, film and more - free of charge.
