Psst. Wanna buy the Khyber?

The Old City hangout is on the market.

Psst. Wanna buy the Khyber?


Everything is for sale, right?

Including the Khyber on Second Street in Old City.

Stephen Simons, who took over the longtime club in the mid-1990s, says a recent deal that fell through got him to consider other offers.

He wants to turn his energy to the rest of his restaurant holdings, including Royal Tavern, Cantina Los Caballitos, and Cantina Dos Segundos. He emphasized that it will be business as usual until a buyer is found.
