The "1923 Banana Club" is Texarkan's newest nightspot and is located in the basement of the 1894 building in downtown Texarkana. The club is owned by David Peavey and he has a few downtown projects going on downtown Texarkana This is what he had to say about this truly unique nightspot.
The inspiration for the speakeasy came from the way it looked when they first started work. The art deco style was showing in the original basement's look and they went with it. The goal is for you to feel like you went back in time. David said he wants 'people who walk through these doors to feel cooler than before they walked in.
Tickets can be purchased here. The event starts at 6 PM on Thursday. The 1923 Banana Club is located at 223 Front Street in Texarkana Arkansas.
