Harold’s Club is a private club where members have the opportunity to be served alcohol while they dine and/or socialize at Harold’s in the Heights.
Harold’s in the Heights is located in the “dry” section of The Heights, between I-610 and I-10 at 350 W. 19th Street and Ashland Avenue. The first floor includes an eating area, deli with counter and check out area, coffee/juice bar, meat section, grocery, prepared foods and a wood-stone pizza oven. The second level has a covered, outdoor rooftop dining area, indoor dining area and private dining room, bar area and full kitchen. The upper level is a place not only to dine and drink with friends and family but also a place for community gatherings, private catered parties and meetings.
Harold’s Club was formed because the historic building is located in a “dry” area of The Heights where laws prohibit the manufacture or distribution of alcoholic beverages. There are certain laws that do allow for alcohol to be served on premises and in order to do this, Harold’s Club was formed and has received its permits from the TABC.
