Best bar in Silver Lake MJ's is home to the best theme nights. Le Barcito, a Sunset Boulevard bar popular with Latino gays and known for wild drag shows, closed in Weekend brunch is popular, too. This rough-and-tumble cruise bar has been a gay hangout since the late '60s, from the Shed right through its tenure at the Gauntlet II until the mid-'00s. Let's keep places like MJ's in business! It's as fancy or comfy as you want it to be - both the food and the vibe. I was pleasantly surprised when I first came here since it was off the beaten path.
There's also a nifty selection of interesting beers, and the atmosphere - a cozy '40s bungalow with a relaxing patio - is wonderfully inviting and unpretentious.
In this space, a rather trendy but still quite inviting gastropub called Hyperion Public Hyperion Ave. Good times. As noted by Eastsider LAit'll be the third gay establishment in the area to shut down in just three years. Toggle navigation.
