Best Gay Bars in Houston

Let's face it -- Houston is becoming more fabulous by the second. Whether you want to dance your heart out at South Beach or Meteor, sing your heart out at the karaoke bar at JR's, or shoot some pool at EJ's, the rainbow is becoming stronger and stronger here. In fact, Houston's gay bars are some of the best in the country. Less buttoned up than the East Coast and friendlier than the West Coast, gay bars in Texas are where it's at.

One reason Houston's gay bar scene is world-renowned is because of the Montrose district. After the downtown gay bars were closed down in the 1970s, the homosexual population began meeting in the sleepy streetcar community of Montrose and soon began living there. Since then, Montrose has become gentrified, recognized as one of the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in the city -- which makes it easy to get home after a night at the Montrose gay bars!
