The Honeas have been searching ever since for just the right location for the Grapevine to move to — and now they’ve found it.

Michelle and Ronny announced this week that the Grapevine — the perennial Readers Voice Award winner for best straight bar for LGBTQ folks — will be moving soon to 2213 Butler St.

in The Medical District. If that address sounds familiar, it’s probably because that’s where the infamous Redfield’s Neighborhood Tavern was located for a short time back in in 2020, before the straight men who owned the place got caught on tape telling the female general manager to stop hiring so many gay men to work there because Redfield’s wasn’t a gay bar.
