Stereo Live

6400 Richmond Houston, TX 77057 | Galleria | 832-251-9600

Location Description:

This spacious discotheque at 6400 Richmond — once home to the legendary Club 6400, whose alumni still hold reunion nights — has actually been booking some of the world's top DJs for a few years now. With emergence of EDM as a youth mover, Stereo Live found itself in the catbird seat, upgrading the sound and light systems to world-class status and effectively becoming a self-contained operation. Top talent (Rusko, Porter Robinson, Flux Pavilion) ensures the venue will keep ruling Houston's EDM roost for the foreseeable future.
