Not what it used to be – This was one of the first lesbian clubs that i went to as soon as I turned 21, it was a hip crowd and it was the place to be on wednesday nights. Well it's been 4 years now and the last couple of times I've gone on fridays it's been nothing but trouble. The cover charge is still pretty equal to the rest, after 11 it's ten dollars and the drinks are priced the same also (but with a little bit more alcohol). The AC definetly needs to be worked on because when it starts getting crowded you want to go outside with the smokers, the dancefloor is pretty small and unless they start having a host or more contest it's pretty much you and your friends entertaining eachother. The only problem I have is that there is no security, I've witnessed 3 fights already right outside the club and no one was there to stop it, just onlookers who seemed to be more entertained than worried. The crowd is more immature than the other clubs in that area, you bump into somebody you apologize and you move on. Well not here, they seem to take everything too serious and forget why they went out to a club, to have FUN! Unless they get security you would be better off going a couple blocks down to HERE or Girlbar who now are open on fridays and have way more fun with a mature, hip crowd.
Quiet. Great for hiding a way. – It ain't what it used to be by any means, but it's known for its constant changing. It used to be fun and exciting, especially when the patio was open and the BBQ was going. Now, it's in the shadows but good for those who want to hang out and relax with a brewsky or whatever your choice is and not be bothered too much. The bartenders and woman barback who used to be there and were fun are all gone and so is the BBQ. The crowd is more somber and more male. If you want the fun crowd, then this is not the place right now. Keep checking back though, it will probably change again sometime in the future. If not, then just keep looking else where. Sorry.
Awesome – I loved the atmosphere. Friendly bartender and the people there are cool tool. Such a nice place to pass time.
It's a great little bar. I really like being around all the really hot women. I'm a really cool guy and I'm respectful. I mean hey I only look. If I'm looking chicks will look too. If you're nice to the bartenders you might get a free one. Best night is Wednesday, but stay away from the barback. She works like a man. I mean take a second to breathe. Okay? The guy who owns the bar is really nice and a really great guy. The best part about the bar is the hot bartenders. Chicks drool over them as much as I do. Take my word for it. I know. I really do. Their EASY too. I wish the barback was but I'm a nice guy.
Poor Service, But Cool Atmosphere – Very cool/kitchy atmosphere -- where else will you see a Thai Elvis? Food was also really good. HOWEVER, the service was absolutely horrible. We had to chase down a waitress to order. Then, we had to wait forever for our food. Our drink order (which was very simple) didn't get to us until the END of our meal, and we had to ask three different people for our drinks...
Fun times!! – Ok so I go Wed. nights and drinks are a dollar... but the guy at the door is totally sweet says hi and all that and the bar tenders are totally sweet and attentive :) the dance floor is small and cramped but I've gone 4 out of the last 5 weeks and it really is a fun time :) no people trying to be too cool just happy people having a good time being drunk and stupid
All The Lazy Dykes – I was told to go here and 'free myself' and that I did. And I've never felt quite so alive, in the hole of my life, I mean in the whole of my life. Once, I was just somebody's wife, now I am reborn and I feel very alive again. I highly recommend this place, if you can muster the will to astride your bike and drive on down.
West Hollywood's lesbian institution offers attitude-free nights of dancing, watching the game or hanging with the bartender. – In Short
Every night is ladies night at L.A.'s landmark lesbian watering hole. A WeHo staple for more than 35 years, this laidback, no-frills bar is as welcoming to leather-sporting biker chicks as it is to bi-curious beach babes. Mixing up the fun with a different scene every night, themes range from Tuesday's open mic comedy to Wednesday's dollar drinks that lure in the younger set. Thursday night features hip-hop and live music and on weekends the dance floor action continues. If you're looking for a chill scene of ladies who happen to like ladies, then this pub's for you.
Your typical dive bar – The Palms is small and quaint if you're not into big crowds. Wednesday nites are $1 drink nites, so take advantage of it. The dancefloor is small and could get hot, but the music's cool. Come to Bliss on Saturday nites if you're into Hip Hop. The theme nites idea is a good thing. Be aware of long lines when ordering drinks.
