Nightlife is Abundant for the Gay Traveler Visiting Los Angeles and West Hollywood

Los Angeles has one of the largest gay and lesbian populations in the United States.  For the gay visitor to L.A., look no further than West Hollywood and Silverlake for an incredible nightlife, and an array of venues and bars that suit everyone.  The locals refer to these hotspot areas as East of Fairfax and West of Fairfax.

The Abbey and gay nightlife and bars in Los Angeles

A special corner of The Abbey in West Hollywood remembers Liz Taylor. It was a hotspot that she frequented quite often.

East of Fairfax, which some will claim as a more laid back and slightly more edgy crowd, one can find The Eagle (primarily a leather bar), as well as M.J.’s and Akbar.  Heading west into the West Hollywood area, the most popular gay bars include:  Fubar, Gold Coast, Hamburger Mary’s, Marix, Gym Bar, The Palms Bar, Trunks, Eleven, Revolver, Mickey’s, Rage, Mother Load, Fiesta Cantina, Here Bar, and the grand daddy of them all, The Abbey.

It’s not all free-flowing booze with Go-Go Boys and Girls.  Wonderful restaurants in the West Hollywood area include:  Boa Steakhouse, Gordon Ramsay at The London Hotel, Livello at The L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, Culina at The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, The Bazaar at the SLS Hotel, Asia De Cuba at The Mondrian Hotel, The Palm, Craig’s on Melrose, Koi, STK, Nobu, Fig & Olive, Ago, Lisa Vanderpump’s Sur & Sur Lounge, Tortilla Republic, Cecconi’s, Osteria Drago, Riva Bella, Bossa Nova and dozens of others.

Speaking of booze, don’t drink and drive.  Most of those celebrity mugshots one sees in the tabloids involving drunk driving originate along the Sunset Strip and Santa Monica Boulevard.  Take a cab, it will save you about $9989., and an embarrassing photo.
