What a Snore - Three Strikes You're Out
This club is over priced, tacky, and has a horrible selection of music. It is like every other big gay bar in Weho. The decor, the clientele, and the watered down drinks do not justify the cover price or even the extensive line.
First time I went in, I felt like I had just entered the Hollywood wax museum. Older men dressing like they where 21 with so many botox injections that I feared for my life. Nobody dances till much later. And by the time the dancing starts, everyone is sh*t faced and incredibly gropey and creepy.
Second time, for my friends birthday, same experience. And I got hitt on by the guy who looks like the guy from the Mens Wearhouse commercials (You're gonna like the way you look) and my straight female friend had a guy stick his hand up her skirt.
Third time, I was invited by friends who really liked Jessica Simpson to go see her perform. This club is just the right kind of tacky for someone like Jessica, but as with the prior two times, I wanted to support my friends (I guess I need new friends) and I was turned away for having very stylish, and very cool flip flops on.
WTF? They think they can turn someone away for wearing very cute, Socal flip flops? Hellooo? This is Weho. The Abbey doesn't have a dress code, Rage, Mickeys..nowhere else does but this place. And it's just like all the others. The bouncers are straight looking and they look fearful that if you go up and ask them a question they are going to catch your gayso they are veyr unhelpful and very awkward.
Their website, and this review website all state that the dress code is casual. They won't let someone in with flip flops, but if you have 100 botox injections and like to wear polyester, you're totally in buddy.
Not worth the wait. Not worth the price. Their website claims this is an excellent place to have a fashion show or an academy award party..yeah right. Maybe if you're throwing a D list movie premier or a JC Penny fashion show. Go to the Abbey instead.
