Houston Club Scene

A recreation of an iconic mural once painted on Mary's Lounge in Montrose in the late 1900's.

The Houston club scene is a large and diverse one, and the Houston drag club scene is no different. Looking at both the past and the present, there are plenty of stories to be told and places to visit if one is interested in Houston club drag. 

It is important to remember when perusing this section that cross-dressing ordinances were used to arrest people when bars such as these were raided. For more information, please check out the Bar Raids in Houston Exhibit.
