Thursdays and Fridays- what to expect – This has been "the place" for attractive lesb1ans to come and dance on Thursdays for years now- it started out without dancing, and it didn't really draw my attention, bt the crowd was stellar. The crowd took a dive and got more rowdy and "ghett0", but the dancing started...and I couldn;t resist for a long time. Now, the crowd has finally become more sophisticated and the music is the best it's been. This is totally the place to go if you're a bi/fem girl and you want to dress up and not stand out as "the girl". They usually play pop and hip hop, and the crowd is diverse, finally.
Fridays are way more upbeat- the bartenders clear the bar and dance- and even though they're hot, they still actually make good drinks. "Truckstop" Fridays are way more geared towards caucasian crowds (rock music, 80's pop).
Both nights are great, and its a good "lesbian" club to take straight girl friends too- the vibe isn't extremely inclusive and they will feel welcome.
Better than Girlbar – As you can tell from title of this review, Girlbar has been a huge disappointment and it's been a reason why I keep coming back to Here instead. If you get to Here before 10:30, there's no cover charge. By 10, there's a small crowd gathering already, so I'd recommend getting there around that time since drinks are still at happy hour price. The staff is very professional and makes sure the place stays safe for people to have fun. Just the other night, someone dropped a bottle of beer on the dancefloor and the staff was there in seconds to clean up the glass. There are two bars, one smaller one at the entrance, and the larger one at the back before the unisex bathrooms. Thursdays and Fridays are a good time to go if you're looking for a ladies night. Thursday is "Fuse" where they play hip-hop/r&b. Friday is "Truckstop" where it's a mix of 80's rock/pop classics and current pop music. It's also the night where the hot bartenders get up on the bar at the back of the lounge and peform in Coyote Ugly style. Just be prepared with some bills and a change of clothes back at your car because you will get water splashed on you if you're close enough. This place seems to draw a younger and more hip crowd than Girlbar (which is just down the street at "Ultra Suede"). The Here bartenders are far more attractive (male and female), and even when cover is being charged, the price is lower. Drinks are just strong enough and they've got a small selection of beers (Stella, Newcastle, Heineken, Corona, Bud/Budlight, Michelob Ultra). Also, don't worry about not having cash on you as they don't give a beef about you not paying in cash, plus they're prompt in giving you your card back (some places insist you keep a tab open). There's also outdoor seating with heatlamps when necessary so you can enjoy your night out with friends, have a smoke and drink. Indoor lounge seating is by reservation only though. This spot is one of the few good Weho places for women (on Thu & Fri only).
Good Place To Be On Thursday For Women – Every thursday that I've been this has been a good treat. The scenery is mellow yet the drinks are over priced. The crowds are diverse so there is a little something for everyones type. The DJ however has his good nights and bad nights. The music is just as diverse as the people.
The best Lesbian Sopt in Weho!!! – The Here Lounge is the best spot for gay women in Weho!!! The music is great and the girls are hot. Love it wish there were more places for women...
Outrageously priced drinks, slow service – I'm sorry but this place is overrated!!! Sure there are good looking people that go here but the drinks are outrageous, the bartenders are too slow (I agree with another poster who was irritated that the bartenders are too busy chit-chatting and not taking care of customers). I tried not to expect too much having been a bartender myself in SF and NY (knowing that mixing can vary from bar to bar), but there's no justification for the prices. Even in NY we didn't charge that much! Sorry but I think I'll go to some other bars in WeHo.
Here is where the hot boyz are – I've been in L.A. for a little over a year and would give up any day of the week just to party at Here on Sundays. The under-40 crowd is usually the hottest boys at any given place on any given day. The music is also A list (some of the best DJs in the country rotate here just to get this place on their resumes). The dance floor is small but that only helps things heat up. Oh, and they do heat up! Hot men + hot strippers + great service + strong drinks @ a reasonable price = the best gay bar in L.A.
Saturday nights - "straight night"! – One word for this place... GORGEOUS!! The venue, the staff, everything just looks great! I go every Saturday... it's amazing!! I believe one of the Lakers does this party every Saturday night and they play r&b, and cool hip hop. Gorgoeus people everywhere and celebrities at every table!! This is definitely the spot to be every Saturday night. Get there early, as it reaches capacity early. I found that if you make a table reservation, you get treated like a VIP and can hang out with all the stars!
i have heard through out the week the here lounge is a gay/lesbian bar but on monday nights it's turns into one of the hottest spots in la "snatch" a trendy party with a great social scene with some of hollywoods heavy hitters showing up every week tips this place is vip(guest list) only so get to know someone who has been there or find someone who promotes there even if your on the list get there extremely early espeacailly if you are a guy.ladies get on a list plus come dressed to impress this place gets crowded drinks are good women are crazy have a good time if you can get in
Best Lesbian Spot on Thursday – It might be the only lesbian spot on Thursday. The music is always hot. Dance floor always packed. The ladies are always friendly and easy to approach. The service sucks though. Security is incredibly rude for no legit reason other than they control the door. The bartenders are slow and have nerve to goof around while everyone is just plain thirsty. Drinks are overpriced. Way overpriced. But the club in itself has a great ambiance. And the friendly ladies give it a hot vibe.
Fun place – Came here one night when they had an Asian promoter throwing a party - had a very good time. Reminds me a lot of nearby Pearl - nice cozy space, big outdoor area. Bartenders were fast and the drinks were decent. Girls were quite good looking too.
