Over on the Eastside, away from the hum of the city, rests a peaceful oasis – unless you count the floor-quaking, heart-shocking nights when Body Rock, Soul Happening, or Africa Night are rattling the walls. Let's just say that any time there is live music or a DJ, Sahara will be an oasis, but not of the peaceful variety. This hallowed juke joint is not a mirage, but the earthly pleasures that lie within might make you pinch yourself to make sure it's not a dream. Let the live bands, soulful divas, comfortably mixed crowd, and frosty drinks take you away, because Sahara is real as rain, deep in the heart of Texas – just a lot more reliable.
