A longtime staple of Central Texas night life rich with history in Killeen has an interesting past.

Did you know these interesting tidbits about the building called Cabaret 7?

Cab 7, Formerly Cabaret 7

Cab 7 is definitely a nostalgic spot for the good people of Killeen, but there's more history and intrigue than most have probably imagined. To get the details, I spoke with Amy, a Cab 7 employee very familiar with the place's interesting past who filled me in on some of the details.

In the 1950s through the 1970s, Cabaret 7 was known as a country-western bar for people in the Killeen-Fort Hood area.

For a number of years in the 1980s and 1990s, Cabaret 7 was a very popular place to hang out and shoot pool.

She says over the years the club has gone "forgotten" here in Killeen.

Different Purposes For The Location of Cab 7

According to Amy, the building was originally used as a military bunker on Fort Hood, but after World War II was moved to its current location.

Amy has been connected to the club in different ways for the past 6 years and knows a lot about the location from maintaining a relationship with owners Janie and Bob Tucker.

In addition to the building have once been a bunker, it was once a popular (and quite profitable) country and western club.

Now Cab 7, Has Been Remodeled And Has A New Theme

I asked George Vonan, the new owner of the club, what he has done with the building now that its legacy is in his hands.

He said he has established e a family friendly venue that caters to a mature crowd looking to have a relaxing time.

If what I saw during my recent visit is any indication, it's gonna happen. And hey, a building with a past just adds to the mystique, right?

Cab 7 is located at 213 N. Mary Jo Drive in Harker Heights.
