      I always really liked this place. It's been a few years since I've been there, but you guys mostly sound pretty spot on. I think I'll take the scenic route home from work tonight and stop in there for a couple beers. Perhaps I'll have more to add after tonight - but as I recall, as of a few years ago, I found Gold Coast to be one of the few actually pleasant bars to hang out in, in Weho. It could be that I had a designated driver all the the time back then, and I saw the whole place through beer goggles... I'll let you know.

      Good drinks, no attitude
      Gold Coast has that friendly neighborhood bar feel. It's one of my favorite places since the '80's. I do miss the amusing high-wire act over the bar. Happy hour is a good time to stop by.

      Great corner bar. WeHo's "Cheers".
      Have always loved the Gold Coast. It is what it is, and it ain't changing. Even when they try. That's the charm. Good drinks at reasonable prices. Always something to see, good or bad, it's entertaining! Lot's of pool players. Red Dress party is always great. Loyal customers. Only complaints would be when their DJ tries to play techno music and call it house - it's not that kind of bar. Also, the roach problem has been AWFUL. Take care of that!

      Worth a pint!
      Wouldn&#039;t be a place I&#039;d stay long in but still worth a beer just to checkout the marys playing group pool

      I'm not the target market
      Normally I'd give this 2 stars, but to be fair, the Gold Coast isn't aiming for the late-20's professional crowd. They had great drink specials, and a bunch of normal looking older guys (which I like). I also randomly had an arm wrestling competition with some guy I met. Aside from that, it's mainly just a bar with a lot of men.

      Good Music, Drinks, and People
      Have almost always had a good time here. Not being a local, it sometimes takes a while but sooner or later the patrons warm up to new people, and do it without an attitude. The staff is always friendly and efficient and the music rocks. I wish we had a bar like it close by in the burbs where we live.

      Great neighborhood bar
      Friendly place, great gathering place for friends we work with. Pretty down to earth, not prentious at all which is refreshing.

      Friendliest Neighborhood Bar in L.A.
      Gay owned and operated on Santa Monica Bl. since 1981. It's been the best all around bar from day 1. Don't miss it.

      When you get the chance.
      Check this bar out! It's one of those neighborhood bars that is almost perfect in many ways. Friendly staff, patrons, and a kick back atmosphere. Drinks are strong and not pricey. Great place to go after work if you are walking.

      No frills, no attitude...
      The Gold Coast is the epitomy of a good neighborhood bar. Strong drinks at a fair price, friendly bartenders, very active pool table and video games. Brand new LCD TV's usually tuned to a local sports game or news. Only drawback is the alley behind the bar has its share of hustlers and druggies that can sometimes cause a disturbance. Otherwise, a great place to spend an afternoon or evening.
