The Pompano Club is no more. Hurricane Harvey caused nearly a foot of water to flood the establishment and shut it down.

“The Pompano Club was a private dining club. You had to be a member to come eat or you had to be with a member. We had dancing. We had a live band that played. It used to be every night and then we dropped it down to Thursdays and Saturdays and then we dropped it down to Saturdays,” said Sean Schneider, who has worked for the Pompano Club for more than 23 years.

Times change, however, and so does clientele.
