Poker Club Brings Legal Gambling to Houston's Galleria Area

August 11, 2017


Houston's Post Oak Poker Club, a new private, legal gambling poker club, is now open in the Galleria area. 


This casino-like operation is legal because owners were able to circumvent a Texas law that makes it illegal for them to profit directly from the poker games. Instead, the Post Oak Poker Club generates a profit from fees, food, drink sales and other amenities.


"The law states that you can play poker in a private place as far as the money risked by the players is returned by the players," co-owner Heuer told Houston's "We took it to the next level because for the last 14 years I've owned I Host Poker Casino Parties where we'd rent out places for dealers hosting parties to have a place (to play). We took the law as it's written and applied it."


The club charges its members a one-time initiation fee of $10. From there, players can opt for a $15 daily rate or subscribe for a $150 monthly rate. There are also fees on the tables: $15 per hour or $7.50 per half-hour. Cash games vary by buy-in rates, and the club will eventually host tournaments and charity events.


Heuer said that there's already been interest in joining the club. Roughly 75% of the customers have signed up for the daily memberships; 25% have opted to purchase the monthly agreement.


For a more private poker-playing experience, VIP rooms are available.


In addition to poker games, the entertainment venue is also available to rent for private events or company parties. "We're a great places for hosting charity events. Charity poker tournaments is something I specialize in," Heuer said.


On Wednesday afternoons at 5:00 p.m., members may attend free classes to learn Omaha Poker. Also available are Texas Hold 'Em classes, held weekly at 12:30 p.m.


For non-poker players accompanying friends, the Post Oak Poker Club also boasts a menu of food and drinks.


The club's hours are Monday-Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to midnight.
