The Summit +

David Rozycki

Leading the charge for DIY spaces in Houston in the 21st century, this East End venue hosts live music, movies, private parties, video-game tournaments, dining, art galleries, classes and workshops. The owners chose the name as an homage to the old Houston Summit which hosted Houston Rockets basketball games, concerts and other events. It was later renamed the Compaq Center after the computer company bought the naming rights; it is now home to The Lakewood Church. In addition to attempting to reclaim the name for the city, this new Summit's stated goal is to promote and preserve Houston's creative community in all forms, without being beholden to any outside interests.
