Mable Peabody's Beauty Parlor & Chainsaw Repair, usually called Mable Peabody's or Mable's, is an LGBTQ (or "gay") bar off of University Drive. It is currently (and always has been) the only gay bar in Denton.

History

Kelly Sanders has owned the bar since the early 1990s.

Mable's was destroyed in a fire on March 21, 2007.1 It was suspected to have been arson.

Around October 2008, it reopened in a new nearby location and has yet to be set on fire or blown up or anything.

They hold fairly regular drag shows.  Organizations like Glad occasionally host events at the bar.

  • Free pool Sunday and Monday.
  • Thursday Trivia
  • Different even every Saturday!

Comments

Do NOT park at Papa Murpheys. They always tow, and when we asked the owner why, they were a little hate-crimey about it.

Mables is always trying to improve! If you are a patron and have a suggestion to make your experience better; please don't hesitate to let your bartender know!
