    Fun atmosphere, Music is a bit ratchet with some dubstep beats. Not completely used to porn playing on the tvs, but a good time none the less

    It gets really cray on Tuesday's. Every other day is supah chill and one of the few Weho spots with a pool table.

    One of the 10 Best Gay bars in LA, Mother Lode is a great example of a more laid-back West Hollywood spot. The warmly lit place is relaxed yet lively, friendly and unpretentious but not too divey. Read more

    Of all the bars I've been too, this one makes some fierce drinks. I think they try to kill you! You must stop here when you are in WeHo. Cash only but well worth the visit!

    Cash bar only. Drinks are SSSTTRRROONNGGGG. Laid back atmosphere, and one of the friendlier gay bars in West Hollywood. Some would refer to it as a gay "dive" bar, but so what?
