WEHO Gay Bars & Clubs 2020
Our guide to the best gay bars in West Hollywood
It’s not surprising there are so many nightspots in this WeHo; here’s a sampling of some of the main highlights. Check out the full listing below.
About a block long, The Abbey (692 N Robertson) is a busy “hetro friendly” bar. There are long weekends lines for this very gay coffeehouse, restaurant and full-service bar. But other times you’ll find plenty of open-air seating, and cozy, curtained cabins that are great for making-out. Those seeking a more authentic “gay-experience” might want to head to The Chapel at the Abbey, less touristy and no hen parties!
Fubar (7994 Santa Monica Blvd) is an offbeat neighborhood dance spot for 20-30 somethings with counter-attitude. Exhibitionists and voyeurs both have fun each Thursday with Big Fat Dick erotic photo posing contests, and trashy videos.
Gold Coast (8228 Santa Monica Blvd), a cheap drinks locals cruise joint, is charmingly oblivious to trendiness, with bartenders you can talk to and a wide cross-section of guys.
Micky’s (8857 Santa Monica Blvd), the longtime gay WeHo icon, re-opened with fresh energy, body-beautiful dancers and bartenders, and hot guys packing two floors. Hot Rod Wednesdays are sexy, and shows, guests and events fill their week. Lunch, dinner and weekend brunch are served here.
Rage (8911 Santa Monica Blvd) is a two-level restaurant, daytime bar and nightclub with a young 18+ crowd, open daily. Popular events include: Latin Night Fuego, each Wednesday, and Game Boi with a young Asian crowd on Fridays. Their food is Mexican, such as carne asada, plus salads and burgers.
Trunks (8809 Santa Monica Blvd) a longstanding Boystown sports bar, has laid back patrons, pool and softball teams, a smoking area, friendly bartenders, and drinks at good prices.
