OUR PICK: Pegasus, 1402 N. Main Ave., (210) 299-4222,

You might not hear many LGBT bar-hoppers call Pegasus their favorite watering hole, but most will confess it’s a regular stop on their crawl back and forth along the Main Strip — and there are several good reasons why. Divey, cruisey, unpretentious and unpredictable, the longtime outpost regularly attracts all walks, ages and persuasions with a winning mix of impossibly cheap drinks (served from 2 p.m.-2 a.m., 365 days a year), diverse musical offerings (country in the back, dance remixes in the video-equipped main bar) and outdoor drag shows featuring the talents of Beyoncé D. Mykels, Layla Larue, Sasha Andrews and many more. But the crowning glory of this diamond in the rough arrives in the form of no-holds-barred karaoke on the boozy back patio, where guests can shamelessly channel anyone from Morrissey to Selena or grab a seat and play judge to an impromptu episode of San Antonio’s Got Talent.
