Mother Lode

(124 Ratings)
No WeHo attitude in sight

Strong men drinking even stronger cocktails. Mother Lode dismisses the pretense of its neighboring bars by creating a mellow atmosphere with an easygoing vibe. 

A classic dive bar, this friendly hideaway is welcoming to all who are fun, and funky and prefer a no-frills, drama-free night out. 

Don't let this unassuming dive fool you, this spot gets downright packed and rowdy on the weekends so prepare to rub some elbows... and more with some great Hollywood gays!

New Guy on the Block?

This is a place to have a good time and meet new friends. The men are friendly. The bartenders are hunky and the drinks are cheap. A great place to hang out and do nothing but cruise, drink, or chat.

I meet the most important man of my life at Motherlode. I've been going there for many years and have good memories. It's good place to meet new people and cruise a little.
