J.R.'s—like its sister bars in Dallas and Denver—is a quintessential gay hangout with attractive Southwestern-inspired decor and a fabulous patio.

The Montrose-set spot is an H-Town staple among the GLBT crowd, offering cheap drinks, quick services and a good mix of music and videos. While it may not be the poshest bar in the gayborhood, it does draw a loyal following that return for a laid-back atmosphere and generous happy hour that begins at noon and wraps up at 10PM Monday through Saturday.

Stop by for $2 Tuesdays.
