The nightclub featured in a shooting that sent one man to the hospital early Sunday morning is another unlicensed Houston bar, according to records from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
Allure Lounge, located at 9725 Richmond on the west side of Houston, hasn't filed for nor received a liquor license from the commission. Records show that a liquor license for The Night Life – filed in the same suite location as Allure – expired in December of 2016 and has not been renewed.
A Facebook page for Allure, as well as other online advertisements, promotes musical performances and DJs along with happy hour and drink specials for patrons.
Several phone calls to Allure as well as knocks at the club’s front entrance were unanswered Monday afternoon.
