    What happened to OCH?
    OCH's used to be the place in Austin, no questions asked! The staff was seasoned and some were very attractive. The music, atomsphere, patio, etc...were really what made this bar a complete package. It was ALWAYS packed! Over the last few years it has started to decline. These people made tons of money and rarely could you see it being reinvested in the club. They finally made bigger restrooms and moved the DJ booth but other than that, it still looks the same as it did 15 years ago. The lighting system seems to barely work and there is nothing special about their dance floor. I guess the best way to understand their decline is .....The most popular & established bartenders, DJ's, and other staff members no longer work for OCH. The majority of them are at Rain. That should say enough. Again, try it out, it is still ok but nothing like it used to be.

    Texas should be PROUD !
    I have traveled all over the world and love the nightlife. I have been to many, many, clubs. Vegas, Miami, NY, LA, London, etc...San Fran, the "Mother Land", has horrible clubs. Nothing even remotely close to what we have here in Texas. Many zip codes have great clubs but none have all the amenities of South Beach! You have a great sized venue, with overwhelming lighting, sound, special effects, full colored lasers, Kryogenifix cold fog system, and great DJ's / events. South Beach is defintely THE most high tech bar in Texas and surely one of the best in the country. Houston, be lucky that you have something so clean and fabulous! You could have some run downed hole in the wall or nothing at all. All of those things I listed cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. What club or club owner spends that much money on a club for his patrons? So, yes, it may cost a little more but you have to pay for your experience, it is not a charity event! People are in business to make money. If you have never been you are missing out on a grand experience. This is the dance palace of Texas and one of the greats of the US. No, I do not work there or am I affliated with them. I am loyal customer just because this club is awesome and I can see how my money is being re-invested!
