The Abbey in Los Angeles' West Hollywood neighborhood is great for dancing

The Abbey

WeHo’s LGBT hub for revelry. If you’re on the hunt for a place to mix and mingle with LGBT and queer partygoers in Los Angeles, The Abbey is a good place to start. This venue is pretty much the “intro to gay clubs” where you can find fun, sociable people ready to have a good time. The indoor/outdoor layout is perfect for day drinking, or stop by at night to hit the dancefloor surrounded by talented go-go dancers. There’s no shortage of excitement at this historic LGBTQ+ hot spot in West Hollywood. Expect a long line on weekends and don’t forget to hit up connected bar The Chapel at The Abbey next door.

The Abbey Details:

🍔 Food:
While nighttime is more of a club vibe, a full brunch menu is served all day. You’ll find everything from burgers to salads to pasta. The Garlic Rosemary Fries or Nachos are solid options to help combat the drunchies.

🍸 Drinks:
They have plenty of fun cocktails including a signature selection of martinis–their Wild Berry Martini is fan favorite. But once night hits, let’s be honest, you’ll probably just end up ordering a vodka Red Bull.

🎶 Music:
Live DJs play pop, hip hop, dance, and top 40 jams that keep the party moving every day of the week.

Ambiance:
One word to describe The Abbey–energy. You’ll find music blasting, flashing lights and a vibrant crowd. Daytime is more laid back, but always a great place to go with a group of friends. The crowd is mostly gay men with a little of everyone else sprinkled in (including straight people). The stripper poles on stage mixed with an airy, open terrace creates a trademark environment where you’re bound to have a good time. It’s important to note however, the rampant pickpocketing issue in WeHo means you’ll need to keep a watchful eye on your phone and wallet.

📸 Photo Ops:
Forget selfies, at The Abbey you’re gonna want to get video of the glamorous drag queens and talented go-go dancers literally hanging from the ceiling.

😃 Happy Hour:
Join them for “Abbey Hour” Mon-Fri: 4pm-7pm. Select drinks are $9, beers are $7, and appetizers are $12. Not too shabbey… forgive the pun.
