bighairymuscles saidThe best gay bar in LA is the Eagle in Silverlake.
Its a butch leather bar. Mostly you will see butch guys, or men into leather, cops, firefighters, I have met a few military guys there as well.
The best time to go to the Eagle is Saturday night, when they have "meatrack" or the big muscular guys dancing.
West Hollywood is not what it used to be. It was a great city with different types of guys back in the day, but it has drastically changed. It's mostly young twinky guys in A&F shirts and in the 18-25 age bracket.
The funny thing is that most people who live in West Hollywood aren't really from southern California. As someone who has lived in LA all my life, nearly everyone I have met in WEHO is from out of state or trying to make it in the entertainment industry.
The only places in WEHO that are still pretty cool are Mickey's and Trunks.
Other places you may want to check out:
Both leather butch bars in Silverlake
The Silver Fox
These are the cool gay bars in Long Beach, which has a VERY large gay community.
In Laguna beach they have closed down the "Boom Boom Room" (I miss the boom soo much! It was my first gay bar !) and the only club left there is Club Bounce. Orange County is very conservative and Republican, so your best bet is to check out the gay bars in LA or Long Beach.
I hope this helps
ucimae saidActually, OC has had Club Lucky for years (with a couple of the nights in Long Beach at Hamburger Mary's). If you're here at the right time, when they do their monthly gig at House of Blues at Disneyland, it can be really fun.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that there's also VLVT starting up in Santa Ana tomorrow night in fact. They were around last year, but went through some reorganization so tomorrow's the re-opening event.
But yeah, similar to what others have said, it really depends on what you're looking for.
As far as WeHo goes:
I personally really like the Abbey and love their mojitos, though it will cost you. Motherload is a pretty awesome place, and is more of the bar scene than the club scene.
Someone mentioned Mickey's. Since the remodel, it's pretty nice. Always busy. If it's your thing, the gogo boys there are pretty scandalous (sometimes I wonder how they don't get shut down for some of the shit they do). I will say that their dance floor is only alright, though.
I've also been to Rage a lot in the past, and since you're Asian, I might as well mention that every Friday night there is Gameboi, their Asian night. Again, don't know if it's your thing, but just in case, there's the info. They have a decent main dance floor there, but don't drink there, it's just not worth it.
And lastly, probably gotta mention Fiesta Cantina 'cuz if you're looking to get drunk, that's probably the place to do it. Not awesome drinks, but the prices can't be beat, especially when they've got the 2-for-1 deal going.
Hope it helps and hope you have an awesome trip!
