If you're looking for something a little more casual or to meet a friend for a drink, this is a great spot. No loud music and just a friendly neighborhood vibe.

The Bullet Bar is a very special place.

I responded: At the Bullet Bar, we have many types of events for many types of people. The bar has a long history and has gone by several names, including the Hanged Man, the Signal, and for awhile it was a strict uniform club called the Officers Club, and in that incarnation, you weren't allowed in the club in street clothes at all. As time has progressed over the last 18 years, the Bullet has become more and more popular with many segments of our ever growing and changing community, and while it holds its standing as one of the only leather bars in Los Angeles County, it also stands as a place where many other parts of our community can mix and hold important fundraisers for various causes that are important for the continuation and heathy living we all want to prosper. Groups like, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Payasos, Bears LA, all hold parties and fundraisers here. Also, Bullet bar is the home bar for several groups such as the Leather Foundation (LA Branch), and is the home bar for the pup community of Los Angeles County. Because of the multitudes of groups and regular patrons that come to Bullet Bar frequently, what you wear to the Bullet is necessarily under any requirements, but for certain events it is encouraged. The underlying atmosphere definitely calls out that this bar has leather roots, and celebrates individuality, and compassion in all types of people. It is d finitely important to note that this bar has two leather title contests that bear the name and insignia of the Bullet. Mr Bullet Leather, which has been going strong since 2001, and recently we held the very first Ms. Bullet Leather contest, in the hopes to continue to strengthen the community by creating equal attention to all LGBTQ people living in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. On a personal note, the owner of the Bullet, Michael Lara, has gone above and beyond in helping me realize my dreams. After winning Mr Bullet in 2014, he has single handedly helped me strengthen the pup community by leaps and bounds in Los Angeles. The Bullet Bar held our first Los Angeles Pup contest last November, which held scores of pups from different generations in our area.

Perfect Neighborhood Leather/Western/Bear/Men's Bar

Love the cigar night, wish I were able to get to more of them. This bar takes its community and customers very seriously, and more power to them for doing so! Some very interesting nights and people show up here regularly.

not super impressed

Just on a general level it's not the greatest bar ever. Bar staff is super friendly but this place is not for those that are looking for more than an easy laid back night.

A great little gay bar in the valley!

I stopped by one weekday afternoon and had a good time. The bartender, Randy, was friendly and fun, and the few regulars at the bar that day were welcoming. Not an ounce of pretension to be found. It's a great place to hang out, have a drink and make a new friend. The drinks are very cheap by the way. While the crowd is mostly gay men in their 40s and 50s, there was still a lovely mix of ages and colors and sexual orientations. And everyone seems welcome. I loved that one of the televisions at the bar was showing gay porn, while the other one was showing the Home and Garden Network. Perfect! While I'm sure many patrons take home a new acquantance occasionally, this is more of a neighorhood bar than a cruise bar. There is no back room and I doubt any action takes place on the premises (perhaps late at night, who knows?) They have several themes throughout the week (karaoke, movie night, etc.) and a Sunday afternoon BBQ, which I hear is very popular. Highly recommended!
