No matter what your sexual orientation, Los Angeles gay bars are fun, friendly and frequently loud. From West Hollywood standbys to Silver Lake upstarts and alternative leather lounges across the city, gay bars in Los Angeles beckon queens, bears and everyone in-between. The city’s LGBT scene is clustered in WeHo around Santa Monica Boulevard, where legendary institutions like Mickey’s, Rage and The Abbey serve up neon cocktails and drag shows to a fit and attractive crowd. Go low-key and casual at hangouts like Mother Lode or Gold Coast, or swing by Fubar for dancing and creative revelry. You’ll find strippers on the tabletops at Revolver and Eleven, and a quieter neighborhood feel at St. Felix. Silver Lake and the surrounding area is also a hot spot for gay bars in Los Angeles, from the straight-friendly Akbar at Sunset Junction to the fashionable MJ’s, which features go-go platforms and video screens. In Venice, the Roosterfish on Abbot Kinney is a surf-friendly dive with DJs; on Wilshire Boulevard, the Faultline is a leather-and-Levis bar with a hunky, upscale crowd. Dance, drink and cruise your way through LA gay bars and discover a wide variety of venues.
