  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
There are a number of LGBT-oriented hot spots in CenPho's Grandview neighborhood, and this cozy joint may be one of the most laid-back of the bunch. The main bar area has a touch of modern swankiness, and the cheerful staff is happy to pour you a pint from the standard selection of taps. The Rock's mixed drinks are cheap but pack a punch. Boasting a patio, a rec room for darts and video games, and a performance showroom in addition to the bar, The Rock is damn near a clubhouse for all the interests of its diverse clientele. Various nights include karaoke, darts league, stand-up comedy, and poker. Weekends get busy with regulars coming out for Valley drag diva icon Barbara Seville's weekly performances, as well as various female illusionist shows and charity benefit performances in rotation.
