Working in tandem with club architect and interior designer Dawn Batsche, lighting and sound guru Tim Hannum created Houston's Tango. The hotspot opened in May 1997. It took just 47 days of construction and three weeks of design to complete the 10,000-sq.-ft. (900 sq. m) space that holds four bars and two dance floors. "It was a total gut--go in and put a stick of dynamite in the room, then start over," Batsche says.
