Can anyone remember the name of the club before it was Harry's? When was Harry's established? Someone asked and I am stumped!

It was a movie theater. Don't remember it being a different club though.

I think that Harry's opened in 1993. Before that it was Baja Yacht Club and Mercury Bar.

Wow. Is that the place on the corner, across the street from a 7-11, and down from the Chicken? If so, it was a theater when I was there, and I believe it was all boarded up.

Zip that was Shadow Canyon for a long time, then Midnight Rodeo, now Daisy Dukes. All clubs/dancehalls.

Wasn't Baja Yacht Club also at the Lack's center where 4.0 & Go is? That's the only place I remember it at.

It was the Axis Club in the late 80s. Had Michael Jacksonesque decor.

Baja Yacht Club was over on Texas Ave. in the shopping center near where Lacks used to be. I don't remember it ever being where Harry's is either.

I am serious, and an Aggie. Places change after 24 years. Bear with me.

Pete must be young. It did used to be a theater.



I want to say this was taken in the 40s?

Part of Harry's was originally Larry Stegent's Sports Club. I believe the part on the end of the center was a movie theater.

Rho, that's it. I thought at some point Don owned it or was looking at buying it. I don't think anything went in there before I graduated.

I have a book of Tubularman comics - it's a great way to look back and see where the bars were in College Station in the early 90s.

I think it was The Edge before Harry's. Baja Yacht Club was in the old Winn Dixie shopping Center and Sundance was in the Hilton.

Baja Yacht and the Edge were both at Harry's spot and by winn dixie center at different times

Electric Cowboy is really the place that made that location

OK now. There used to be a club by the Krogers. Did Krogers change to Winn Dixie. I drove by about a year ago and THAT building was all boarded up. In fact, that whole area was looking run down.
Edit due to stupid auto-correct.

Yes. I took this picture in 1940 or 1941. Don't remember the exact year.

Well ... They ARE talking about bars. Can't expect them to remember much.

I think this is correct. Also the northernmost part was a theater for many years.

The Campus was a different theater, where Shadow Canyon was.

Baja Yacht Club's 1st incarnation was where 4.0 and go is (in Lack's shopping center).

However, it rose from the ashes in the place that is now Harry's for a short time.

You guys had a Winn Dixie?!? I dont think I've seen one of those this far west.

Rho's. Wasn't Daisy Dukes something else in between Shadow Canyon and DD? I don't remember Shadow but remember when it changed to DD.
