Built in 1942, The Kessler (as the locals call it) has been an Art Deco fixture on the corner of Davis Street and Clinton Avenue. Throughout the decades, the venue has been a movie theater and revival tabernacle but was abandoned for 20 years before finally being renovated and reopened in 2009. Although it functions as a dance studio, ever-changing art gallery, and full-service bar (offering a variety of locally brewed beers and spirits), The Kessler is best known for being a live music venue. Featuring an intimate setting and great acoustics, it’s widely considered to be the best live music room in Texas and regularly features everyone from indie and local artists to marque acts. The Belmont Hotel is just two miles away from The Kessler Theater.
