TC's Show Bar is intended for transvestites and their admirers, but all are welcome. Since summer 1999, the nearly hidden bar off Fairview has staged free drag shows at 11 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, plus 8 p.m. Wednesday "matinees." It's a bit dark inside, but the friendly waitstaff, abundant seating and well-lit pool/pinball area keep patrons comfortable. If drag's not your bag, TC's is also stocked with seven flatscreen TVs, a bartop gaming system and an overly diverse jukebox. Sunday is hot dog night.
The favorite drag bar of a certain member of the Houston talk-radio community, TC's in Montrose is the first drag haunt that many curious Houstonians will find themselves in once they get bitten by the fabulous bug. The club features full-on shows five nights a week. Leave your inhibitions at the door and sit back and enjoy a 300-pound man singing "Bad Romance." More »
