Popular drag shows Tuesdays through Sundays
Though it's not the most upscale place in town (a good thing in the eyes of many), this dive draws a diverse crowd. The drag shows are a raucous good time.

      Fabulous Drag Show Bar
      This is the place to be with the longest Happy Hour til 10p EVERYDAY! Alexis Nicole Whitney the Emcee is Blind but knows how to strut her Stuff, the bar staff are well mannered & treat "every" customers like Gold! Bar opens at 8a Monday thru Saturday & 10a on Sunday with Customers waiting out the front doors! The patio is Beautiful with a bar that opens on special occasions! It's the Coldest Bar in Montrose so great place to chill out with the hottest drink prices!

      This has to be one of the best show bars in TEXAS! Me and my friends have not been here in a loooong time! It has cleaned up a LOT! They have national title holders in the show and they really know how to make you laugh all night long. A MUST SEE in the middle of the GAY BARS in HOUSTON!

      First night hangin' in Houston
      Last night was my first night going out since I moved here a few weeks ago. So TC's was my touchdown spot. I grew up in New York and have lived in Philly and Atlanta, so I have been to a "few" spots in my life. What I'm not goin' do is compare the clubs in those other cities to TC's. I've found that each city has it's own unique flavor. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. Deserve crowd, only a few "suspect " people in the spot, but really what club is any good without them ? The staff was friendly. I thought the show was pretty dam good and the girl doing the MC'ing was charismatic and humorousness......oh and the bikini hook-up she had on was a head-turner. There was a nice assortment of girls in different shapes, sizes and colors. So all-in-all I enjoyed myself and I will be back. Go head Houston !

      It's the same old place again!
      When they remodeled and changed the name from Cousin's to TC's, it really was a positive change. Over the past year or so it has steadily deteriorated. The drag shows are stale and the performers seldom change. Who wants to see the same divas with raggedy costumes and holes in their stockings. I don't think any self respecting queen still performs there. They have gone to the new F Bar. Hustlers abound there and even the bartenders will cheat you. Beware if you go there!

      Entertaining slummish drag bar
      Place seems a little bit sketchy. But it's entertaining. Shows can be fun. The crowd is always a crap shoot of crazies! Also entertaining. Probably wouldn't hang out here often, but the trannies on and off stage and some of the people that come to hang are worth coming to see.

      Voted #1 Showbar in Houston
      Daily drag shows with the best performers in Houston are the reason why TC's is Houston's Premiere Showbar!! Shows start everyday at 11pm except for Wednesday which starts at 8pm. The NEW owner (Tim) and Manager (Rod) have really changed the bar and it is continuing to grow and be better and better every day. Love hanging out here. All other reviews are way off...

      TC's Bar (Formerly Cousins) on Fairview
      New owners have remodeled this place and have done a good job with the very little they had to work with. When I arrived I was still approached before I ever got to the front door by a hustler outside who wanted a cigarette. The place no longer looks like a Filthy, disgusting truck stop restroom that hasn't been cleaned in 20 years. They have a fenced in area outside for smokers. It's very small but adequate. The drag show is better now than it used to be though still very amateur feeling if you are accustomed to the real professional shows found in other cities. I was approached another 5 times by hustlers wanting a cig and at least a dozen times by people wanting a light (to be expected in a hustler bar so no big deal). This is a good place to pick up a hustler or see an amateur feeling drag show. Don't wear anything expensive and keep your eye on your wallet because they will try to work you for whatever they can get.

      Cousins is GONE! It's now TCs
      Wow what a change! Remodeled and updated it's now a pretty nice place. New owners have really been trying to run off the dregs of life that used to hang out there. T-girls are most welcome there. Performers now revolve so you usually don't see any of the same girls the same weekend. Also a new patio for smokers. Thanks Tim & Cory for the great upgrade!

      Been There ... Done it !!!!
      Cousins is for those that like to hustle!!! This is all this place is a drug infested hustler bar. If you go in to have 1 or 2 quiet drinks, you are asked several times to buy drinks... I dont even like the drag shows they have there.

      Not into that crowd
      I like places where the thugs go. You can't find a real man in that sort of fem environment!

      Go there if you're a CD, TV, TG.
      I you crossdress, this is your place. It's a decent place to stop by when you're bar hopping.

      not too much shit
      you have raven st james who is one, has too much class for this place, the other performers are rude, will not not let other good performers come and perform and turn the club around, don't see much hope,need to be more classer than they are, showcase some male performers and take out the trash
