Everyone goes to The Usual now... Chances is OLD NEWS 10/17/2010

Concensus for a long time has been that Chances is not the place to go anymore. The staff is horrible and rude and many (not all) of the people that go there are trash. My group of friends went there for years supporting this bar and now the punks that work the door or bartend have made us so mad we have left to go elsewhere when we hadn't planned on leaving... the last time we walked away from the door person because she was extremely rude.. this was a large group of people celebrating a birthday party and the place was empty... (i.e. there's always one person that still wants to go there on their b-day... not any more). You also have to worry about your car getting broken into in the area or dealing with some scammer that the allow in the place....and it doesn't feel safe. And when I say scammer, i mean regular male scammers that mess with you. Live music and the action is over at The Usual Pub on Allen St...They just won Best Lesbian Bar in Outsmart Magazine... Forget Chances. more

We need a real Lesbian bar. 3/5/2010

The staff is TERRIBLE!!!! Please hire new staff! You will continue to lose all your customers. Pros: Ladies Cons: Rude Staff, Poor drinks, Bad attitudes more

What's wrong with chances? 8/22/2008

OK, let me start off by saying I really used to like this bar! ALOT! They got a nice makeover and were really starting to keep up with the other clubs. But the last few months I've noticed the bar staff has become rude and slow - like maybe they're messed up. I mean, there's no need to cop an attitude and huff just because someone orders a mixed cocktail that takes a little effort - if I just wanted a beer I'd stay home! Besides that's what a bartender is supposed to do MAKE DRINKS! And what's up with the DJ's and bands? The DJ's are starting to play the same tired mix each week. And it used to be bands EVERY week, like twice a week, now it's just once or twice a month - and with bad feedback. What's going on? Come on Chances, I want to like you again. Pros: lesbian bar Cons: everything else more

lil gangstas and old alcholic lez 8/5/2008

This bar has turned to crap......they have the lil gangstas crowd there on weekends and the old alcholic lez durring the week. This club is not what it use to be.....WE NEED A NEW CLUB FOR LADIES IN HOUSTON, one that is not TRASH more

Pros: lots of ladies Cons: parking more

Step It UP!!! 5/15/2008

Chances is defiantly not my favorite place to go!!!! The staff is rude. The girls are not cute!!!! Eden is defiantly the place to go. Chances needs to step it up a notch, or two. I WILL NEVER GO BACK. EDEN RULES!!!! Pros: No fun Cons: bad music more

Very nice place 4/8/2008

I would like to say that this is a really nice place. Free to get in most nights and Worry free that you might get robbied or assualted. Friendly staff and customers I say keep the great job up Chances. Pros: You feel safe Cons: More parking more

Bad Service, Bad Attitudes 1/16/2008

I am truly disappointed and disgusted with how bad this club has gotten. Their bar staff is absolutely the rudest at any of the ladies clubs in Houston. It seems like everyone from the door staff to the bartenders has a BAD ATTITUDE! Hey, this is a "service" industry, if you can't be friendly and welcoming to ALL your customers then you're in the wrong business...get a day job! There are horribly long waits for drinks (even when it's not busy) oh, and don't even think about ordering anything other than a beer, wine or vodka tonic, if it takes an effort or has more than 2 ingredients you'll get a dirty look. (it's happened to me and my friends on more than one occasion). My last visit was the last straw, I won't be back unless they get a new crew and new management. Their whole rebuild was a waste with a staff like that! more

Chances has gone down 11/30/2007

I have been in Houston a little over 3 years now. I enjoyed Chances before their fire, but now they have a really rude staff (I agree with that other comment on this) and lately the DJs aren't the greatest either. On several occasions I have waited to be served at the bar while the bartenters focused on their "favorites". I am also VERY disappointed to see less of the live music. They used to have a band every weekend and a house band on thursday nights that was incredible, and now there is nothing, I think there was one band last month. I went to PUR at Pasha this week and Club Eden 3 weeks ago and all I can say is Chances needs to step up, because both those clubs had FRIENDLY staff and great atmosphere! Shame on Chances. Pros: in montrose Cons: rude staff, long wait for drinks more

Terrible club 11/27/2007

cold staff, rude service, unfriendly environment music is outdated Houston needs another women's club soon! Pros: inexpensive Cons: staff, outdated music more

Beatrice is the best bartender at Chances. 7/5/2007

Hi Bea, It is me, Sally and Kara, the nerds that loved to mess with you at Chances. We loved you and we missed you during the remodel of the burned down part of Chances. We have not been back since we found out you moved to the other location down town. Hope we finally find out where you are working so we can have you make our drinks. We have missed you and your girlfriend Doris, the Houston policeman. Please tell us where you are making those spectacular dirty martinies these days!!! Love your regular drunks at Chances... Sally and Kara more

I always have fun.... 2/13/2006

I've been going to Chances for a while now, usually once or twice a week (especially during L-word season) and I always have a good time. I think your editorial profile is a little out-of-date. The crowds are pretty friendly. It's not the trendiest bar I've ever been to, but to have a lesbian bar that has live music, karaoke and some pretty good DJ's on the weekend rates high with me! I agree with the other reviewer on this one! I'd highly recommend a thursday or saturday at this club. Pros: cute crowd, live music, friendly Cons: parking, seating more

New Year 2005 1/5/2006

My gf and I spent New Years with the wonderful folks at Chances, while I must agree most of the staff is pretty cold, the ladies in the lounge were wonderful! Michelle is an excellant friendly bartender. Music was good, crowd got along, just a wonderful night in all. I have been there on other occasions and must say I would write the same review. Just a nice place to hang out Pros: affordable drinks, good music, easy to find Cons: restrooms need work, not enough restrooms more

Rude bartenders 12/10/2005

I was a new lesbian in town and when I came inside, I noticed a group of regulars there. The bartenders are so rude, they made me wait at least 10 minutes before I got served because they were talking to their friends. I experienced a very cold environment from the staff and the regular customers there. I will never go back there again. Cons: Rude bartenders more

Chances is a great place on weekends 9/8/2005

If your looking for a place to relax or a weekend and have fun and take your friends Chances is defenitly the place good beer and shots not expensive. 3 different bars always a place for you. Pool tables music you pick. You can always find some cute women there too and don't forget Thursday night for Fluff the Kat an awesome band along with open mic. Pros: inexpersive, fun, friendly more

Editorial

  • In Short
    You walk into Chances, and the first thing you notice are the multicolored streamers--hundreds of them--hanging cheerfully from the ceiling. The colors vary with the season, but they always give the place a feeling of carefree happiness. The bar has been the host of many benefits and fund-raisers (it's raised half a million dollars for AIDS and breast-cancer research) and is an active supporter of the Montrose Women's Clinic.
