F Bar

202 Tuam St. | Houston, TX 77006

Opened in early 2011, F Bar quickly became gay Houston's answer to upscale clubbing.

The 4,200-square-foot space that previously served as home to a number of mainstream nightclubs has been completely redesigned with luxury in mind. Think chandeliers, elaborate wall coverings, velvet drapes and a glassed-in, semi-outdoor lounge area. The large patio features cabanas and a glass fire pit, allowing patrons a place to play outside.

According to owner Irwin Palchick, the name F Bar comes from FashionBar in Singapore, which inspired the concept.

Perhaps the F's biggest show is the weekly F Divas show on Tuesday nights when the bar's resident drag performers put on a drag show like no other. Other regular events include nightly happy hours and Retox Sundays.
