This is a bar that I first went into on a trip to West Hollywood 40 years ago so I'm not sure how long they have been there but they've remodeled there's a lovely patio in front where you can smoke as well as drink and the drinks are very reasonably priced and simply huge and that is their philosophy about pouring a drink is the owner once said when you pour a drink in my establishment you poor a drink. A very wise philosophy. By Stephen Valentino

Definitely best option to get a stiff drink that won't cost $25 a glass

I think the coolest little gay bar with lots of STREET view atmosphere, if you can get a booth by the street it might be noisy but a lot of fun

This bar used to be good long time ago, used to be a fun place to go with friend and dates, now after the pandemic the place is open again but the atmosphere is total different what it use to be 5 years ago, the pool table is gone and now is more open to the sidewalk but the fun part is missing for some reason.I hope this place comes back to life again.

I have fond memories of going to the Sunday beer bust in the late 80s while living in WeHo. I am so happy the Mother Lode is still around and hope the bar remains for years to come!

This bar is always a part of my bar crawl whenever I'm in West Hollywood. Mark makes my drinks exactly how I like them and has an awesome personality. They are more than doubling the size of their patio, so people watching will be even better. Don't let the construction scare you away. They are open for business!
