Gay Nightlife in Los Angeles

Grab a drink and grab a local.

New Jalisco Bar

A dive in the truest sense of the word, this no frills DTLA bar boasts the cheapest of drinks, a raucous dance floor, regular drag shows, and no cover charge to speak of.

Redline

Located in the Historic Core, REDLINE is set to bring back a sense of community to the downtown LGBT nightlife.

Flaming Saddles

This ain’t your grandpa’s gay cowboy bar. With a mix of country and pop on the jukebox and bartenders in cowboy hats dancing on the bar tables, it’s like Coyote Ugly for people who like staring at hot dudes.

Precinct

The 8,500-square-foot bar is on the upper floor above the casual Italian restaurant Pestolini. Precinct is a “rock and roll gay bar,” though that’s meant to represent a state of mind rather than the only style of music the bar plays.

VIP Nightclub

A night out in true LA VIP style. Taste a bit of the Hollywood glam at this club hosting drag to dance and everything in between.

Trunks

Not quite a bar or lounge, more like a parlor with cheap drinks and pool tables. It would be the opposite of the WeHo scene—if there were any scene at all.

Silver Rail

Your local gay dive joint offering everything from dancing to bingo. Escape the over-the-top theatrics of gay Hollywood at a place like this.

Roosterfish

Your gay go to in Venice. Enjoy a night of dancing with drinks strong enough to have a bite. But that’s how you like it anyway.

Rage

Too young to drink, but ready to twink? The boys (sometimes younger than 18) party here for the theme nights like Asian “GAMeBoi“ on Fridays.

Oxwood Inn
