Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Houston

Let’s start this off with a list of the best gay, lesbian, and mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Houston:

Best Gay Bars & Clubs

If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Houston for men to meet men in your area you can use that list we just posted. We used to live in a world where things were far less inclusive, but these days most venues have become more LGBT friendly instead of strictly gay bars.

Don’t worry, there will be plenty of opportunities for local men to meet men at plenty of spots around town.

Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Houston

Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Houston for women to meet women. The mixed list should have plenty of options for you and if there are no cute girls around to hit on head out and find another place around Montrose to try.

With that said Poison Girl and Anvil Bar could be good places for you to start your search.

Drag Shows & Trans Bars

We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Houston currently but you can find drag shows that may help you meet ts near you at:

  • Millennial Dolls at JR’s every Wednesday
  • Numerous Drag Shows at Hamburger Mary’s
  • Drag Trivia & Other Events at Buddy’s
  • Sunday Drag Brunch at ReBar
  • Drag Shows at Papi’s
  • Drag Shows at Room Bar
  • Drag Shows at La Granja
  • Drag Shows at Barcode

Please use the comments to let us know if anything you notice on this page is no longer relevant or if any new LGBT hot spots in your area have opened up since our last visit. We also want to say that we know how things are here pretty good but we are not local experts by any means.

If you think we should be listing any venues as strictly lesbian or gay bars definitely let us know. We have tried our best, but we can’t keep up with the whole world without a little assistance.

Many of these gay or lesbian bars and clubs near you can be found in the LGBT nightlife area of Montrose. The Montrose gayborhood should offer you just about all you need.
