Gay country sports bar thriving in Texas
This gay country sports bar is shattering stereotypes and making everyone feel welcome!

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- A gay sports bar in the heart of Houston's Montrose neighborhood is tackling stereotypes and greeting everyone with a warm welcome.

Owner George Konar first opened George Country Sports Bar 15 years ago and it has been thriving ever since.

"The concept that I went in with was, I want to be the only gay sports bar around," he said. "Because all the guys love sports. Just because they're gay doesn't mean they can't enjoy a good game. And it works!"

At George, the game is always on and country tunes are always playing. And if you're craving a steak, swing by on a Thursday for the uber-popular steak night. Chef Michelle Free's steaks, chops and seafood are legendary.

"She makes the most unbelievable steaks in the world," said Konar. And she sells out!

But it's not just great food and game-day action that draws people to George Country Sports Bar - it's also a place where you come and feel like family.

"Everybody's welcome," said George. "Serve all and smile."
