Best Gay / Lesbian Hangout


“I’m only happy when it rains,” crooned Garbage lead Shirley Manson. Austin’s gay community appears to agree. Offering weekly karaoke, blasting out dance and (thankfully) hip-hop’s latest, and offering some of the cutest bar staff in tight shirts, Rain’s meteoric rise should come as no surprise. And with newbie Fabric and old timers Rainbow Cattle and Oilcan's, Rain has solidified the Fourth/Fifth Street parallel as Austin’s own gay(er) district.
