Description

JR’s Bar and Grill is a gay watering hole located in Montrose. Opened in 1986, it is the oldest bar in Houston that is still operating. The building was originally a train depot, a grocery store, and then an emporium before it became a bar for the Houston LGBT community. It is popular for amateur strip contests, karaoke, and drag shows. This techno bar is not as elegant as the others, but it attracts a more laid- back crowd with Southwestern-style decor and a nice patio. On Tuesdays, they host Charlie’s Angels Drag RuVue, a popular drag show.
