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.
Kelly Sanders has owned the bar since the early 1990s. According to an interview, the only public GLBTQ venue in Denton was established by Margaret Honeycutt sometime around 1980.
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.
On September 3rd, 2017, Mable Peabody's ceased to operate.
They hold fairly regular drag shows. Organizations like Glad occasionally host events at the bar.

The men's restrooms are surprisingly decent for bar restrooms. Sex is rare in these restrooms.
Chalkboard on the bathroom walls. CLEAN restroom!
Current Bartenders (as of March 2014)
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!
