HOLLYWOOD Gay Bars & Clubs 2020
Our guide to the best gay bars in Hollywood
The Old Hollywood of a bygone era, the one frozen in film stills and cemented in the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard, has evolved from iconic status to legend to kitsch and cliche. But when in Hollywood … it’s a lot of fun to tour the lives of old starlets and leading men, and take a trip through Hollywood’s touristy facade, and when you’re on a set that looks like lower Manhattan, you’ll know we mean that literally.
These Hollywood locations host several theme nights and large parties during long weekends and holidays.
Avalon (1735 N. Vine St), big 18+ Thursday night Tigerheat gay dance frolic, the largest weekly gay event on the West Coast, with CD releases, go-go dancers, and often famous guests too; also Masterbeat dance parties and Bardot back bar events.
Club Tempo (5520 Santa Monica Blvd), gay dance and cruise club for Latinos and men who desire them, drag shows, strippers and events all week long.
