Finally...a bar for MEN!!

I am sure everyone has noted the continuous gentrification and watering down of the gay man's bar! We have lived a long and sometimes painful struggle finding our place and our acceptance in this world. We have all strived to be included in mainstream society...but I don't tthink any of us thought it meant the loss of the original gay man's bar! The Houston Eagle is a throwback to those wonderful dark, dimly lit watering holes of the glory days of gay MEN! While we love our lesbian sisters and our straight counterparts, when a man is looking for the company of other men, your resident twink's gal pal is not what you want peering over your shoulder when having a beer with another hot man asking "so dies that nipple ring hurt?" Twinks re-think!!! This bar is for the men and their admirers...take your buisness to South Beach! CALLING ALL MEN...WE ARE AT HOME!!!

This is one of my new favorite bars anywhere. It's similar to Eagle bars in other cities, though with a slightly more Texan vibe. Very relaxed, friendly, laidback, with good drinks. If you're in Houston, you must check it out!

The crowd here is NOT leather! Not very impressed. When I went it was the Saturday night before Hallowe'en so maybe not typical. Almost no one in leather. Did not see many mature men. Bartenders OK but not super friendly even if you tip very well. No clothes/coat check. Having one would encourage folks to take off their coats and whatever. At least this place is cleaner than Ripcord.

Newest of the Montrose scene

The eagle is a great place to hang out, have cocktails and meet new people. Usually it is busiest on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon. There may be some leather, but it is more about guys hanging out and having a good time. Various patios and decks and upstairs bar.
