This multi-level gay bar in West Hollywood is something of an institution. Definitely makes for one of the best nights out in Hollywood. There’s eye candy aplenty with all those California muscle Mary’s seeing and being seen.

The Abbey won the MTV Logo Best Gay Bar In The World Award twice. You can eat, drink, dance and watch Drag Race. Head out onto the terrace to wine and dine in the sunshine.

If you’re planning to make a night of it, you can dance until the early hours. This bar is very popular and the dance floor can get packed.

Check out their sister venue, The Chapel.

If you’re looking for a fetish fest in the City of Angels, then this venue should be your target. Fly straight and true to The Bullet Bar.

Gay-popular bar in Pasadena area. The Boulevard has karaoke, a pool table, drag shows and a bar patron’s holy grail: a heavy pour for a cheap price.

There is a nice patio at the back. The excellent karaoke system comes complete with LCD projection and video monitors throughout. Come by and sing with some of the friendliest DJ’s in Southern California.

Located a little off-the-beaten path and far outside WeHo’s party orbit, this longstanding Pasadena joint remains a favourite among locals, young and old.
