Meteor is without doubt the classiest gay bar in the state of Texas. It's nice to go into a nice gay bar and not have to deal with the pretentious people you find in most of them. They have a great half priced happy hour and a great staff. On a Sunday, you can drink $1.00 vodka drinks and not believe your tab is over ten dollars. Really helps the pocket book these days. Totally great bar to let loose or unwind.

Pros: Location, drink prices, shuttle to other bars

.

It's a great place to hang out and watch your favorite videos and mingle with old and new friends. The environment is laid-back and the staff members are great!

Pros: the best hang out spot in houston

Cons: it's closed on mondays and tuesdays

.

The meteor lounge is the best little secret in Houston, with more class than any of the Midtown bars adjacent to it and at half the price. Everything from the Jungle patio to the colorful chandeliers is pleasing to the eye and its not a place packed with raving teenagers, its a great place to just kick back and relax with friends or mix and mingle with new people.

Pros: Great bartenders, High Class decor, wonderful atmosphere

Cons: Closed Mondays and Tuesdays

This is a good place to mingle and\or keep to yourself. Meteor is also a good place to meet the people to know or the "who's who" in the "Alternative Lifestyle" community. With all of the friendly bartenders to make your time here an experience or even if you come in for one time stop, You always have fun at Meteor.

Pros: Lots!

.

There are a lot of great people who visit Meteor on a regular basis and the events that Meteor host are always great as well. The bartenders make the best drinks and the floor staff always keeps the place clean, I have nothing but great comments and admiration for this place. So I rate Meteor 10 stars but it will only allow 5. :-)

Meteor is a little gay secret. It has a great crowd of the best looking guys in Houston. The whole experience is elegant and modern. The staff is incredibly friendly and, even at the busiest times, service is stellar. There is a great patio that is beautifully landscaped, and the music is always cutting edge.

This is where Montrose begins and Midtown ends. Yeah, it can get a little pretentious sometimes, but that's just the inner queen of Montrose coming out. The decor is spot on and drinks better than any water downed "drinks" you'll have to suffer through in Midtown. Meteor is fabulous and if it ever closes again, I'm voting Republican! just kidding.

We go down to Houston often to visit our friends and we really enjoy hanging out and having a few cocktails at Meteor. It is a very nice place with reasonable drink prices and a great crowd of people but not too crowded either.

Nice bar, looks cool, very clean! But horrid people, Isn't this what Dallas is supposed to be? Don't expect to find anyone there to conversate with unless you already know them. I don't know where half these people come from I don't even think they are from Houston!

The first time I ever went to Meteor after the Grand Opening, I was immedietly impressed. The staff, decor, and atmoshphere all make for an awsome and inviting place to hang out.
I immedietly fell in love with the staff, and have since made Meteor, my "Home Bar."
Alec, the GM is a total delight, and the plush couches, and warm inviting personlity of the place, makes me want to continue to come back again and again. The crowd is great, and tends to attract a more higher end clientale than Jrs or the Mining. The 1.00 Vodka Drinks on Monday and Sunday nights is a great addition to the Kareoke show hosted by non other than Justin Dollar, not to menchon the hot gay boys that you will find wondering around the patio or lounging on a couch some where. Weather you are just visiting the area, or you call Houston your home, Meteor is with out a doubt a bar your going to want to frequent. If you have not made it yet, you need to soon!

I went to the Meteor grand opening with my "fabulous" friends and it was very crowded but I was immediatley impressed. The decor is very chic, trendy and posh. Great stage to dance on (for the brave) and 2 bars makes it a little easier to get a drink. I recently went back for a friends birthday and it was another great time! The music is fun and changes throughout the night. Parking is a little challenging considering location. But i will be back again for sure!

Pros: Good crowd, chill place with a big personality

Cons: wish i could find a straight boy!

..and has been completely renovated and redone. Gorgeous. Love everything about this place. Great drinks, friendly people, easy parking and never a cover. Music is good too. This bar is better than anything you'd find on pacific.

This place was great, but it closed its doors months ago. The bars in Houston are pretty lame. This one was really the only one worth going to. The rest are smoke filled and the crowd is pretty dreadful.

Great Bar. Took 18 friends to play Drag Queen Bingo and everyone had a blast. The coctails were great and reasonable. Great lounge feel. Everything sleek and shiney yet the crowd made it warm and friendly. Plan to take 26 on our next trip. Would love to go back on a weekend.

I moved to Houston from Ohio in August '04 and Meteor has easily become my favorite place to go out on the weekends. I like that it's a more sophisticated, yet hip and trendy crowd that gathers there. The best time to be there is on Friday nights when it's usually quite full. Drinks are almost always great...generally better than the drinks I've had at some of the other gay bars. I like the minimalistic design approach used as it allows for a lot of open, unobstructed space to people-watch. I absolutely love the music videos that they play throughout the evening. Ah, is it Friday night yet? :-)

Glad to see Meteor finally get the recognition it deserves. It is the best gay/lesbian bar in town by FAR. Whether you're talking about their unique and entertaining programming or the highest level in service, you cannot go wrong.

Great place for after work drinks during the week, and it's fun for a night on the town Fridays and Saturdays. Saturdays tend to be a bit slower. Oh, and don't forget Musical Theatre Night and Drag Queen Bingo. You can't find better bar entertainment anywhere in Montrose!

Pros: Service, Entertainment, Atmosphere

That just needs a bit more warmth. At first, the art deco nouveau decor is cool, but then you realize that if you are not bringing a long your own clique, then chances are you'll be drinking alone and watching videos. While I'm the first to enjoy an establishment that is upscale (Meteor is), the clientele seem a bit too elitist for my tastes. Take a look and see what you think.

The thing that is best about Meteor is that you are able to avoid a lot of the trash that frequent the other gay bars in Houston.

Add the fact that drinks are consistently good and the staff is incredibly friendly and you've got a great bar. I also don't have to worry about brining my straight friends here; they aren't accosted as they would be elsewhere.

Meteor has become my favorite gay bar/lounge. It's a great place to chill, people-watch, and enjoy cocktails. Cute servers, great lounge-style seating, sleek interiors and surfaces, etc.

Many gay men that I know like to start off their evening at Meteor. They go Friday, Saturday, or Sunday and use it as a springboard to begin a night of partying. The drink prices are great and very reasonable. Plus, they always have drink specials, even on their busiest nights. I recently went on a Thursday evening and a great time. There was a nice crowd and several eligible bachelors there. I love how the seating arrangements place me within a few feet of a guy I am interested in. Meteor is a great place to talk with your friends since you never have to shout over the music, and also a nice place to go and mingle. Its very clean and well kept and the bartenders and managers are superb. I went alone, had a few drinks, met some new people and had a blast!

Kinda cute place, best thing is that it is off the Pacific Street strip. The only major flaw is the bothersome street trash, begging you for money as you enter or leave. C'mon guys...if you're gonna run a snooty place, you gotta make it safe for your clientele.
P.S. The drinks are better and the music has improved. Love the addition. The staff still has alot of attitude (even for me). When it is not busy, you should not have to wait for a drink!!!

The Korova Milkbar in "A Clockwork Orange" has nothing on Meteor. Video screens, huge and not-so-huge, decorate the walls in a ceaseless synchronized flux of music-video artistry, playing a variety of hip, obscureā€¦
