  • Oreo gave * to South Beach in Houston
    Crowd to young and boyish
    I didn't like this place I guess because I like an older crowd. I wasn't impressed with the music all they played was house music. The drinks weren't that good either. Yeah this place has lights, fog machines, and all that to cater to a younger crowd but that's it. They will let you in if you 18 plus so there are alot of guys there that are young and not even old enough to buy you a drink because they're tagged with that bracelet thing. I think the only good thing about this place is that they valet park your car. I liked this place a lot more when it was Heaven.

  • Oreo gave * to JR's in Houston
    popular gay hang out
    Ok I'll keep it real for you. JR's is a cool spot, There you can see drag shows (be sure you see Ms.Koffe). True there are a lot of boozhie wanna bs. If you go there alone the people there can seem to be in cliques but if you really want to enjoy this place it's best that you go with friends. I've been to this club on crowded nights and yes there is eye candy but I wouldn't waste my time trying to meet someone there. The crowd there is from the early 20's to mid to late 30's so there is something for everyone there to look at. This is a very well lit place so there aren't any dark corners to get your groap on, go to the mining company for that. JR's is the second gay club I had ever been to, first was Heaven but it's now named South Beach. The bartenders are fast, I like that. But like I said candy for the eyes but not for anything else. So after your finished walking upright and stuffed up have a plan B so you can let your hair down.

  • Depends on what your looking for
    I've been to this bar many times and to tell you the truth I perfer this one more than the others in Houston. JR's is filled with fake pre madonna guys, South Beach is filled with young queens that are mostly high by some type of controlled substance, and yeah mining company is not your cleanest, well lit places but in my opinion the people there are real as far as why they go out in the first place. Face it at the end of the day we all want to go where it's a little dark and crowded and get rubbed on or groaped a little, be real there really isn't much wrong with that. I've always liked an aggressive crowd that knows what they want and knows why they are there. I think that what most people dislike about the club is that the mining company has the true loves of a gay man staring you in the face. I mean Good music, hot dancers, strong drinks, friendly people, and aggressive men that want to touch or be touched. Most of the other clubs are filled with nelly queens but the mining company is a man's club. I've been before and I'll be back that's for sure.
