Walk into JR's Bar & Grill on a Sunday night, when the bar holds its weekly vodka special, and you will find the narrow room crammed with so many gay men wall-to-wall that you wonder how they're all managing to breathe. But breathe they do even navigate the crowd without spilling their drinks while having the time of their lives in this 17th Street mainstay.
JR's attracts a sizable portion of the city's professional crowd most of the men look like they should be posing for a fashion ad. It's a bustling place with the kind of good-time camaraderie one might find in a fraternity house. Owned by a Dallas-based corporation, JR's is comfortable and clean, with pristine brass railings along the room-length bar and large stained-glass windows. The high-ceilinged room sports a giant video screen, and there's an upper berth a loft that houses a pool table and serves as a getaway from the throngs.
The bartenders are affable to regulars and newcomers alike there's little attitude here. And manager Eric Little is always dreaming up new ways for his customers to have rip-roaring fun, such as the annual Easter Bonnet competition . There's always a reason to visit JR's.
