They have added wonderful new outdoor patio…. and have exploded out onto the sidewalk! Now you can relax in they’re new outdoor patio!. Alcohol can be brought outside from the bar to the patio … You’ll LOVE the FUN!

Girl Bar

Organized by Robin Gans and Sandy Sachs in 1990, GIRL BAR has grown and become the largest dance and entertainment club for lesbians in the US. Since moving to LA from New York in the late 80’s, Sachs and Gans identified the need for an upscale nightclub catering to the lesbian community.

The thought was simple: to give the most compelling events, in the most elegant of surroundings with the sexiest women in town. Today, their spirit continues to grow and set a model of excellence in the lesbian and gay community.

Hi Tops Bar

Hi Tops is the newest bar to open up in Weho’s Boystown that stands apart from many of the boring new spots around. It’s the second location of the extremely successful SF bar and though the high school gym locker aesthetic is a bit heavy-handed, there are lots of diverse welcoming areas for you and your friend group to stand around and party next to the very attractive crowd.

But what makes this place so successful? They are known for serving the best cocktails in the neighborhood. So rather of your usual vodka soda, we advise for the mezcal-heavy Magic Hour, or The Claw, which is made with gin and cardamom bitters.

Mother Lode

Many are happy to report that Mother Lode remains to be resilient in these unstable times. The bar is open for business during a restoration of sorts. Yep, the oldest gay bar in West Hollywood is getting a facelift to stay competitive with all the excellent new additions that are budding all over Boystown. The bar’s owner Robert Yacoubian, who prefers to be called Bob, says the bar is here to stay, that the new additions are impresive, and that the bar will remain a staple of West Hollywood’s gay history.

“We’re simply adding a patio in the front,” Bob tells WEHO TIMES, “It’s going to go five feet out. It will be surrounded. There will be bush trees on both sides. There will be a big awning that will come out over it with heaters and lights. The front will be open, so people will be able to step out and walk around. The doorway is coming out. It’s going to be nice. The feedback we are getting is all good.” Hopefully they finished renovation will live up to the hype.

Rage

Rage is one of the hottest spots in WeHo as of now. The club is know for its fun atmosphere, upscale feel, and the good times to be had. Fair warning, the crowd can be very young, which to many might be a good enough reason as any to frequent the place. If 18 and older, this is the place for you.

The best thing about Rage is Musical Mondays, a magical night where people get together and lip-sync to famous theater video clips. Next to that, it’s a very interesting club and home to Weho’s only 18+ night.
