Or Bar


8228 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood

Taking over the legendary Gold Coast space, Or Bar is the latest in an exciting batch of new queer spaces to open in West Hollywood—in fact, it’s our favorite of the bunch. Yes, $18 craft cocktails are egregious even for Weho, but we appreciate the fact that Or Bar is more than just another four-walled room filled with stale Britney remixes and 24-year-olds standing around on Grindr. People here are actually hanging out, and if you can believe it, talking. The place skews loungey, but not in a tacky, bottle service kind of way. There are plush, comfy banquettes where anyone can sit, gray drapes along the walls, and a giant, amoeba-shaped chandelier hanging over the bar. It’s retro, kitschy, and gives off the energy of a well-attended dinner party in Palm Springs.
