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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
