Robert's Lafitte

Whether you’re in Galveston for an island getaway, sorting out what to ride at the close-by (and appropriately named) Pleasure Pier, or want to experience a little old Galveston strange, pop into the old school dive Robert’s Lafitte. Open since 1969, this place holds the title as the oldest gay bar in Texas. And while she’s got a little dust, nothing beats an evening at Lafitte, whether you’re there for the nightly drink specials, truly iconic local drag shows, or to catch a glimpse of your retired vacation rental neighbor in a leather harness.
