Best Gay Bar: Eagle Houston

Long live the Eagle. Saturday nights are lit, Sunday Funday even fierier as twinks and bears will agree this stop on the Montrose circuit makes for a good meet-up at one point or another. With a dark, intimate dance floor, traditional house DJ, and several bars facilitating the feeling, this New York transplant really is the complete package. Need a chrome cock ring on the fly? Poppers? Multi-color harnesses? The in-house Eagle Trading Company has your party needs covered with an ATM handy nearby. And the birds nest balcony typically makes for a steamy perch to people watch throughout the night.
