    WeHo ConfidentialThe Abbey Food & Bar, is known as the best Gay Bar in the World, having won the title two year’s in a row from Logo, announced today all Bachelorette Parties have been banned from taking place within its doors. “Every Friday and Saturday night, they’re flooded with requests from straight girls in penis hats who want to ogle our gogos, dance with the gays and celebrate their pending nuptials.

    They are completely unaware that the people around them are legally prohibited from getting married,” said David Cooley, Founder of The Abbey.
    “Over the past 22 years, The Abbey has been a place that accepts everyone, gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, bisexual and everything in between. We love our straight girlfriends and they are welcome here, just not for bachelorette parties.”

    The Abbey claims it is has long been a policy of theirs to deny admission to groups in costume, including Bachelorette regalia. Bachelorette parties had previously been allowed inside if they removed their costumes. The Abbey’s Bachelorette Ban comes on the heels of a ban on Gay Marriage in North Carolina and a number of other states across the south.

    The Abbey is encouraging other gay-owned and operated establishments to institute their own bans as a sign of solidarity until Marriage is legal everywhere for everyone.

    Can go either way. Maybe allow this and advertise to get positive feedback from some straight Mom somewhere in america.

    Awesome idea! Until gays have a constitutionally protected right to marry, straights shouldn't be flaunting their wedding plans in our faces.

    I've seen "no bachelorette parties" signs in other gay clubs. I assumed it was because of the high-pitched screaming and boorish behavior. But this makes a better excuse.

    I love them for giving a good reason. anyone whos ever been there knows how annoying those groups get. however, anyone who is from la knows to steer clear of the place on weekend because its a magnet for overpriced drinks, bad music and no elbow room. i cant stand the place but whatever, 99% of the gays do love frequenting that bar.

    this would be great if i actually wanted to stand shoulder to shoulder with la la land's most superficial gays, pay 15 bucks a cocktail (they probably raised their prices since i was last there), and have an absolutely horrible time trying to hear my friends over the insanely loud music with no room to dance to.
