Joe’s On Juniper

We have to admit to being super judgy when anything is too much.
We don’t want our sports bars loud with bros giving high-fives over shots of Fireball.
We don’t want our cafes filled with people smoking and complaining about whatever was in Garden & Gun last month.
And we don’t want our gay bars to be combustibley gay.
Welcome to Juniper.
We have to admit we were a little shocked to find a good LGBT-friendly bar that isn’t over the top, is also dog-friendly AND is in the South.
But, here it is. A gay-but-not-too-gay, lesbian-but-not-too-lesbian, straight-don’t-matter, dogs-welcome joint.
Let’s start with the food. It’s fantastic. Standout is their Blunch Menu that covers everything from Tossed Salad* to a Sausage Fest* (*their words) and cocktails that somehow can never fit all on one page (it’ll make sense when you see the menu) and oh my god, you’re starting to fidget in your seat a bit, aren’t you?
Fine—for the straights: They have a great beer and burger. Shut up.
Back to the bar—namely the patio. Sun and shade and music and drinks and dogs running around. Sure, it gets a bit fabulous in the evening, but it’s all in good fun. And let’s face it, would it really be a bad thing to get your Fido-lovin’ freak on?
And lesbian friendly… ish.
If you’re a fan of males, females or canines, you’ve got a good chance of finding someone to love here.
And if you’re not? Well, you’re probably better off drinking alone.
