On most nights, you might assume The Lash is a gay bar. But it’s actually a DTLA cocktail spot that hosts a bunch of gay events and techno dance parties. The crowd on the buzzy dance floor changes drastically depending on the party schedule, and that’s exactly why we love it here. You can start with Happy Hour drinks on a Friday night and watch as the industrial space fills with drag queens and club kids. Or drop in at 1am on a Saturday to find a crowd of 20-somethings bobbing along to a house mix from a Berlin DJ. Most of the ticketed events at The Lash are free admission before 11pm, so come early if you don’t want to pay a cover charge.
