If you only have time for one gay bar in Los Angeles, make it this. But you’ll probably head back again the next day. The Abbey is consistently ranked one of the best bars in the country, if not the world, and it’s unquestionably one of the most glamorous and most popular. Drinks here can be pricey, but they’re strong, so a couple highballs from one of the four full bars are more than enough to get you through the night. Who knows, maybe someone will offer to buy you a drink as a delightful surprise.
