West Hollywood’s Abbey, Named “Best Gay Bar in the World”

West Hollywood hotspot The Abbey Food & Bar was named “Best Gay Bar in the World” by MTV’s LOGO – the winner of a world wide online voting contest for the first-annual TripOut Gay Travel Awards!

The Abbey won with 41% of the total vote, over nominees from around the world including, Rio, London, Amsterdam, Chicago and Montreal.


According to Abbey President and Founder David Cooley, “We are thrilled to receive this recognition and are so grateful to both our loyal local community and our worldwide visitors.” Cooley added, “It’s especially gratifying to know that we have been part of dramatic societal shift – maintaining our LGBT roots and yet making all our patrons feel like the Abbey is their ‘home away from home.’”


David Cooley is the master at the art of work and play. Over the past 15+ years, his creation, The Abbey Food and Bar, has grown from a small, West Hollywood coffeehouse to one of the most popular hotspots in the country. Locals, tourists and celebrities alike all flock to The Abbey for its famous Martinis as well as its stunning, open-air ambiance and truly relaxed elegance.
