Chic and fun 5/22/2009

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. Pros: Best atmosphere in town. more

Best place in Houston 5/22/2009

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. :-) Pros: Great crowds Great Events. Cons: no cons more

Check it out! 5/22/2009

Good Place to have a good time and mingle 5/22/2009

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: Nicest Alternative Bar in town!!! Cons: Mistaken as expensive because it is upscale more

The hottest spot in Houston 5/22/2009

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 more

best bar in the town 5/22/2009

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 more

Classiest in town 5/22/2009

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 more

Fabulous border of Montrose 7/22/2008

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. Pros: location, drinks, atmosphere Cons: it's close to midtown more

For Real? 7/2/2008

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! Pros: Hawt Interior! Cons: Mean People more

Hottest Gay Boys in Town 2/10/2008

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! more

great place to start and end a night 12/2/2007

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! more

Meteor reopened late 2007 11/29/2007

..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. Pros: upscale atmosphere and people Cons: can't think of any more

Bar closed 1/16/2007

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. more


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. more

Meteor is great 1/3/2005

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? :-) Pros: Atmosphere, Drinks, Music more

It's About Time! 11/17/2004

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 more

A great idea... 7/28/2003

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. Pros: Decor Cons: Cool, Elitist, Sound System more

A sophisticated gay scene 5/18/2003

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. Pros: Great Drinks, Great Staff, Great Crowd more

Meteor is cool, comfortable, charismatic 1/20/2003

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. Pros: Sleek interior, Comfortable seating, Fun & diverse crowd Cons: A bit pricey, No drink "specials", Music is hit or miss more

Fabulous Video Sheek Bar 12/12/2002

The drinks here are a little pricy, but extrememly good. They really make good drinks here. Nice atmostphere, a little stuffy, but trendy. Very unlike scenes in the South. Keep up the good work Meteor!! Pros: atmosphere, good drinks, good videos Cons: pricy, stuffy people more

  • The Scene
    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, obscure bands. A prerecorded mix of hip-hop, electronica, new wave and other mood-lifting, uptempo styles flood the club. Enormous sofas and divans with mile-high backs tastefully ornament the postmodern flat. Carefully selected glasses and stemware accent the minimalist elegance of this tucked away, futuristic lounge.

    The Crowd
    The cast of characters in Meteor's dream sequence includes mostly younger fellas gathered in clusters of friends. Daddies are rarely spotted, but the occasional woman can be seen drinking a cosmo with her "colorful male friends," ranting about how great the place is and wishing there could be a straight bar like it.
