Travel: Los Angeles

Not every person knows but there is more to Los Angeles’ Hollywood glitz and glamour. A few blocks from Downtown LA’s urban jungle is the gay-friendly city West Hollywood—one of the most popular destinations where there is more gay, bi or straight-curious men per square meter than rats. *Wink, wink*

West Hollywood’s next door neighbor is the ritzy Beverly Hills, ever sprawling with celebrity mansions and high-end shopping boutiques lined along Rodeo Drive.

And then, there’s the nightlife. Apart from the fascinating blend of rugged mountains (Beverley Hills), perfect beaches (Malibu and Venice Beach), and the urban sprawl (Paramount Studios, Walk of Fame, Little Tokyo, Koreatown, etc.), there’s the exciting nightlife.

For clubbers, Sunset Boulevard is a popular hangout spot, and of course, queer-friendly West Hollywood—offer a plethora of bars when nighttime comes.

Meet like-minded people and new friends in the following bars and hangouts.



“LA’s best gay bar” according to LA Weekly and, Fubar is a bold and lively bar located in West Hollywood offering a quixotic mix of pub karaoke, drag queen shows, and dance, dance dance. Although you shouldn’t expect glamour—and their clientele is mixed (plenty of women always seeking for a fun girls’ night out), Fubar has that great vibe despite being just a small dive.

Fubar’s address is at 7994 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90046, United States. (Website:

Los Angeles Stairs – Explore the Los Angeles Stairs or what’s left before LA became a city of cars. LA’s network of hidden staircases sadly are overlooked, but some were actually home to thriving street communities. And one staircase was even once made very famous by Laurel and Hardy.

    “A few blocks” ? ? ? ? WeHo is 8 miles from LA’s urban jungle. Don’t get the idea you’re going to walk. You’re going to at least have to drive or take public transit. You can take a subway about half the distance, which is entertaining in itself in LA.

    Ugh. I guess I have nothing in common with the “typical” gay man. I’ve spent tons of time in LA, and most of these are not on my list.

    There’s soooo much more to the LA area than this… I for one can’t be bothered with most of what was mentioned.
