Our guide to gay bars in Silver Lake, Los Angeles

The east side of LA has been for years the city’s cool kid hub. From Los Feliz, down to Silver Lake, over to Echo Park, and now, even into the reaches of Koreatown, the hipster chic style has run rampant and transformed these once humble neighborhoods into some of the city’s most sought after real estate.

Akbar (4356 Sunset Blvd), neighborhood oasis, great jukebox, attracts queer-thinking gentle folk of many sizes, shapes and proclivities, Thursday-Saturday dancing. Weekly or monthly events include Planet Queer, Bears in Space, Learn the Words Bitch, Forbidden Fruit, and Dirty Dirty House Club.

The Eagle LA (4219 Santa Monica Blvd), LA’s leather, uniform and fetish cruise bar, live DJs, pool tables, outdoor patio. Bear Nights, fetish and cigar socials, beer busts, Mr Leather Eagle contest. Sponsors the LA Rebellion Rugby Football Club.

Faultline (4216 Melrose Ave), cruise bar, spacious patio, big Sunday crowds for cheap beer. Underwear, drag, Latin, Hip-Hop/RnB, and bear nights; holiday parties, contests, and competitions.
