LA Weekly's Description

Get on your knees and pray at the Abbey, a sprawling 16,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor drinking establishment that attracts a consistently fierce crowd of choirboys (and the clergymen that love them). Named "Best Gay Bar in the World" by the Logo channel, the Abbey is fun whether you're gay, straight or undecided, a regular jumping-off point for epic nights out in WeHo.

Considerably more relaxed during the day, it's one of those rare and treasured L.A. establishments - a place where you can make out in the bathrooms by night, and take your mom for lunch the next day. You'll spot everyone from Perez Hilton to the cast of The L Word in this legendary haunt, and do treat yourself to a martini; the list features every fruit and berry flavor under the LGBTQ rainbow. Owner David Cooley, who founded the Abbey in 1991 as a small coffee shop, frequently hosts star-studded fund-raising galas at the venue, and his Oscar-night party, "The Envelope Please," raises more than $150,000 for AIDS Project L.A. each year. Become a regular, and you might just figure out how to gatecrash.

The food goes beyond typical bar fare, with dishes such as an Ahi burger, Atlantic salmon, New York steak and custom omelets.

Relax in the tastefully faux-goth environment (votive walls inside, gargoyles outside ? and some cabanas) and gawk at the impossibly good-looking bar staff, whose sexual orientation may well depend on the size of the tip you choose to leave them, or which producer you work for.
