This weekend the Queen of Houston returns home to perform The Formation Tour at NRG stadium. (If you were too busy with that last tragic relationship to get tickets, don’t worry she just added a second date in September.)

But with all the hype surrounding this second “visual album,” the gays are likely to be blasting the tracks for months and hissing “Becky” at each other. 

Bey’s new album is as diverse as the Houston bar scene, so here are the places you should frequent based on the song that fits your mood that night. 

Pray You Catch Me

Boheme – The relaxed vibe fits well with the intimate lighting and is the perfect place to start before walking to the gay bars. 

Hold Up 

Jr's/Crocker/Pearl Bar – Enjoy cocktails on the patios of these chill bars and catch up on all the tea with your good friends. 

Don’t Hurt Yourself 

Barbarella – Go full-on rock queen at this grungy dive and dance bar. 


Meteor – With Meteor’s multiple bars, patio and pool table area, this is the best place to be alone with friends and ignore that “Becky with the good hair.”

6 Inch

Tony's Corner Pocket/Ripcord/Eagle – The sultry sounds are a perfect marriage with these bars that are known for their leather scene and amateur strip shows. 

Daddy Lessons

Neon Boots – Beyonce went back to her country roots so boot scoot back into yours at the best gay western bar in Houston.

Love Drought

Guava Lamp – Cozy up in the plush couches in the corner and people watch for Mr. Right. 


Michael's Outpost – Michael's is set up for cabaret music lovers with tables gathered around a grand piano. 


George Country Sports Bar – The classic vinyl sound would pair perfectly with the sports bar atmosphere of this come-as-you-are watering hole. 

All Night

TC’s Show Bar – TC’s drag scene is perfect for this ballad to let out your inner queen and bring the house down.


F Bar/South Beach/Club 2020 – Grab your single ladies and get in formation at the best dance clubs in Houston. 

Tickets for Beyonce’s second show on Sept. 22 go on sale at noon on May 13.
