Eco-friendly bar helps save white rhinos


Houston, TX – This unique patio bar in Houston’s East End has become known for much more than its impressive list of craft cocktails. white rhinoceros is a bar with a special mission. We support conservation efforts and donate a portion of our sales to organizations that track and monitor white rhino populations and help create anti-poaching zones.

“White Rhino is a community bar,” says RoShelle Salinas of White Rhino. “This is a bar about sustainability and rhino conservation where everyone can come and have a good time.”

White rhinos also have a strong focus on sustainability. For example, he is one of the first bars to use a glass crusher to recycle bottles into sand. The bar also uses a reverse osmosis water generator to convert the humidity in the air into potable water.

For owners Bobby de la Rosa and Rodrigo Salinas, the East End was the perfect place to build white rhinos. Although the area has changed with gentrification in the last few years, we hope this bar brings a sense of community to all who visit.

“There has been a shift in culture and demographics,” said Brenda De La Rosa of White Rhino. “Personally, for those of us who have spent most of our lives here, it is important to respect our roots and preserve our culture. We are very welcome to live here and come together to create this whole new climate.
