Secret Group Covering Up Comedy Headquarters, Plotting June Opening in East Village Development

The Secret Group Comedy Club, 2101 Polk Street, East Downtown, Houston

The final episode of Simpsons-themed mural antics at the corner of Polk and St. Emanuel streets appears to have played out, now that the exterior walls of The Secret Group’s in-progress venue have gone dark on their way toward looking something like the shadowy rendering above. The transformation appears to have a deadline: the group has started selling tickets to shows at the new venue, with the first one set for June 22nd.

The space, at the Polk end of the developing 2-block East Village retail spot, will function as a full time bar in addition to hosting regular comedy and music performances. The rendering from Māk Studio appears to show a rooftop patio; the venue doesn’t currently plan to serve food, but that could change.

  • EaDo is on track to become hipster heaven in the 20s. The large warehouses attract businesses and developments that need more capital and might be more stable than the collection of coffee shops and bars on Washington.

  • Not so secret when it goes on Swamplot.. @ Dana-X : God forbid. It’ll become the self-proclaimed “hipster hangout” aka d-bag heaven… See it already going that way…
