Reggae Hut Cafe’s
In August 2005, tbk, holdings, Inc. acquired and began renovations on the Reggae Hut, a longstanding staple in Houston’s Third Ward kommunity. The Reggae Hut served a tempting amalgamation of Caribbean cuisines for more than nine years before operational challenges almost forced it to close its doors. The restaurant was a considerable inspiration to Davis during the breakfast klub’s formative stages. But more importantly, Davis’ firm belief in the year-round practice of the fourth guiding principle of Kwanzaa – Ujamaa (cooperative economics and sharing) – motivated him to reinvest the financial rewards realized by the breakfast klub in the preservation of this kultural icon. With widespread kommunity support, and to the delight of its many loyal patrons, tbk holdings, Inc. unveiled the Reggae Hut Cafe’s new contemporary urban motif featuring mural work by local artist Tierney Malone in January 2006.
