Michael's Outpost

Map & Directions 1419 Richmond
Houston, TX 77006


Houston Press' Description

Michael's Outpost on lower Richmond is a neighborhood gay bar by day and piano bar by night. It's on the small side, but the clientele and staff are friendly to those who don't run afoul of the bar's zero-tolerance policy for nonsense. The drinks are affordable too, with $2.75 wells and domestic longnecks until 8 p.m. every day. Dartboards, two pool tables and a jukebox are available, and card games are popular at the large round tables in the back. Those in search of mere conversation will find bartenders and regulars more than happy to talk about anything and everything.
