The Travis Nightclub
Dallas locals may have gotten used to calling this fine establishment the Rio Room, but with changing times comes changing names. Making up one of the Big D’s most prolific nightclub establishments is The Travis. Though the name may not be as appealing, this new, contemporary nightlife venue is given its moniker due to its location right on Travis Street; and while the name may have changed, everything that the Rio Room stood for, The Travis has adopted and amplified tenfold.
In the modern day of nightclubbing, you don’t see many disco-centric locations. Even in a city as eclectic as Dallas, disco is not a genre that rears its head all-too-often, especially as the focus of any venue. The Travis gets a little brazen by making disco its focal point, providing disco authenticity with a modern spin. Most disco clubs are know for being overly flashy and downright gaudy, but the designers behind The Travis knew that to thrive in this modern society, the look would need to change.
Encompassing a bulk of the room is a scattering of booths and bench seating, all outlined in a sleek wooden finish. The best set of seats line up right alongside the packed dance floor, but these are reserved for VIP guests only, so you may want to act now and give us a call to secure your VIP reservations. A large bar parallels the DJ booth and gives patrons a place to step off the dance floor to for some quick refreshments. These expert mixologists are no strangers to the requests of Dallas’ nightlife extraordinaire’s, so any drink request that is thrown their way is easily filled.
Where The Travis truly excels is with its line up of entertainment. Local DJs fuel the event space with a continuous string of fitting tunes while special guest performances will really mix things up. Talent like Luis Sanchez, The Twelves, and Juyen Sebulba have been known to make a pit stop at The Travis for a few nights to really ensure that the party never stops. When these talented professionals take the booth, there is no doubt that you will want to be on The Travis’ VIP list for up close and personal seating.
Though the name and the purpose has changed, The Travis is the suitable replacement for the Rio Room. Providing Dallas with a true-to-life disco establishment, The Travis is a unique joint that promises an endless arrangement of entertainment, both on and off the dance floor.
