the story a century in the making In the year 1919, the property located at 2736 Virgina was an Oak Mill that processed lumber for good part of the construction of what would become River Oaks. In the 20’s, they secretly made oak barrels for some of the most notorious bootleggers in the Deep South. This led to the creation of the first speakeasy in Texas nicknamed the “Oakwood” and designed the building to hide this operation. Even today as you walk through the building you still notice a labyrinth-like flow that leads you from one room to the next. During remodeling, a secret door into the floor was found. Hidden records salvaged from the secret spot created inspiration for some of the craft cocktails at Oakwood. Jars of tobacco and a few jars of moonshine were also found in the hideaway spot which will be on display for members to see. With this we will honor the history by reviving Oakwood and carry on some of the traditions that began almost 100 years ago. the experience at first draw As a member, you can expect white-glove service, an exclusive private network, a schedule set in advance of activities and entertainment line-up, an elegant walk-in humidor well stocked with some of the world's most coveted cigars, an impressive selection of the most sought out (Ronnie input wines and fine spirits) and a cocktail movement that will be as sophisticated as our nation's leading cocktail programs.
