A Night Out in L.A.'s Newest "Gayborhood," Downtown Los Angeles

A Night Out in L.A.'s Newest "Gayborhood," Downtown Los Angeles | LGBT Destinations |

For decades many have considered West Hollywood the gay capital of Los Angeles. While countless young homosexuals, including myself, have turned to WeHo to sow their wild oats, others have wished for an alternative. Especially as you enter your 30s (as I begrudgingly did last year), Santa Monica Boulevard sometimes feels a little too crazy.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Luckily for people like me, a new "gayborhood" has emerged in downtown Los Angeles. While divey Mexican gay bar the New Jalisco has been around for years, three new gay establishments all opened their doors in 2015: Bar Mattachine, Redline and Precinct. I went with some friends to check out the burgeoning downtown LGBTQ scene and explore how a night out in DTLA compares to Silver Lake and West Hollywood.
