Mother Lode

Gay Bar, Bar, Dive Bar
8944 Santa Monica Blvd (at Robertson Blvd)
West Hollywood, CA 90069



  • One of the 10 Best Gay bars in LA, Mother Lode is a great example of a more laid-back West Hollywood spot. The warmly lit place is relaxed yet lively, friendly and unpretentious but not too divey.
  • Cash bar only. Drinks are SSSTTRRROONNGGGG. Laid back atmosphere, and one of the friendlier gay bars in West Hollywood. Some would refer to it as a gay "dive" bar, but so what?
  • Get a drink or two from Kyle on Thursdays from 6pm - 9pm!!!
  • The best nights are Tuesdays. Charlie serving stiff drinks with the dirty dancers doing dirty things. Manhole Tuesdays
  • Every Thursday night is karaoke night! Dubbed on Twitter as #LodeKaraoke, this is a great place to sing your heart out! Great drinks, great hosts ;) BUT make sure to get here early! Fills up quick!
  • Doug is the best bartender in weho! Head directly to the back bar.
  • Cheapest, strongest drinks in WeHo. This reminds me of dives in the Big South.
  • See Doug! Make it a large, medium charge!
  • Love M Mload! Great drinks, awesome bartenders. Good scene, not stuck up
  • As the Mayor i should say, this is the wrong Motherlode. It is actually Mother Lode (with a space).
  • MotherLode bathroom, what are u serving us? Hahaha.
  • Mark is better than all bartenders at Mother Lode!!!
  • Dollar drafts till 10pm on Sundays ..
  • Ask Robert for a Black Widow shot or cocktail.. So good and it kicks in when you least expect it!
  • This is the most down to earth bar in WeHo. Strong drinks and a fun crowd.
  • It's always boy night here, but the stiff drinks are worth it.
  • They now take credit cards!!!
  • Now accepting CREDIT CARDS! Goodbye Cash Only signs :P
  • Make it a Large, Medium charge!
  • They don't mess around with their cocktails! You want it strong and cheap, get it here! I approve.
