Sahara Lounge featured in Austinot


We appreicate Ashley Alkek’s write up for us in Austinot. The deep dive into our building’s history as a core part of Black Austin is doubly appreicated!

Depending on how long you’ve lived in Austin, you might know The Sahara Lounge used to be called TC’s Lounge, back in the days of sweaty soul-dancing. Before that, the venue was called RC’s and, before that, Lincoln Drive In, dating all the way back to 1962. There’s no doubt each owner incorporated their own special touch. It’s fun to think of Austin patrons dancing through the decades.
