Everyone in and around the Lonestar State of Texas knows the state is a hotbed of poker action. There are some exceptional poker rooms for Texans to ply their trade in, including the newly launched River Room Social Club.
River Room Social Club is opening its doors to the Texan poker-loving public in a soft launch setting from 11:00 a.m local time over the weekend of December 10. CEO Haig Papaian, a Texas native and former CEO and Chairman of the Board and President of Commerce Casino, and his team have worked tirelessly for the past year to bring the poker room to the state. Papaian and his team is determined to change the stigma of social clubs in Texas by providing an honest, clean, safe, and luxurious environment for poker players.
The venue has space for 60 tables, each complete with automatic shuffling machines, a separate VIP room, more than 30 large televisions dotted around each room, a waiting lounge with arcade games, and a bar and dining area for those much-needed times away from the tables.

The soft opening is your chance to get an exclusive first look at the brand-new facility. The River Room management team encourage and welcomes your feedback, both positive and negative, as they are striving to make River Room the poker room of your dreams.

Being one of the first River Room members is not only something cool, but you will also be doing your part for local charities. River Room is giving 50% of membership proceeds from the opening weekend to the Houston Blue Santa program, a non-profit charity that provides gifts to less fortunate children in the Houston area. In addition, River Room is matching all donations up to $10,000, a fantastic gesture at what is such a difficult time for many people.
Lavish Grand Opening Coming Soon!
Once the soft launch weekend is in the bag, River Room will operate 24/7, making it your go-to place for all things poker in Texas. The Grand Opening is scheduled for January, and although River Room is keeping its cards close to its chest, PokerNews knows this is going to be a spectacular affair that simply must not be missed.
