  • Gold Coastline, the Fabulous WeHo Gay Disallow, Increases from the Dead

    When West Hollywood's Gold Coastline bar closed down after 40 years last September, several hypothesized that the once-thriving gay scene on Santa Monica Boulevard was down for the matter. The epic dive bar was the 3rd gay site on the road to close down throughout the pandemic, complying with the closure of Rage and Flaming Saddles a month previously. All three establishments were had or co-owned by questionable real-estate baron Monte Overstreet, the so-called \"king of Boystown,\" who came under attack for taking a tough line in lease settlements with his COVID-strapped tenants. Overstreet and his organization companion likewise possessed Oil Can Harry's, the landmark Country Western gay bar in Studio City that shuttered last December after 52 years. (Founded in 1968, it was the earliest gay bar in Los Angeles-- as well as a launching pad for entertainers from k.d. Lang to RuPaul.)

    But while WeHo's bar owners were specifically tough struck by the pandemic, the alarming predictions of Boystown's death turned out to be premature. Craze is returning this fall under the possession of former NSYNC star Lance Bass, that vows that his revamped Robertson Boulevard nightclub will reopen as the greatest gay bar in the world. (Bass is also a partner in Rocco's, the hugely effective gay bar and also dining establishment nearby.) Now, Gold Shore is also positioned for a comeback, albeit with brand-new proprietors as well as with a new name: The Or Bar.

    Whatever it's called, the new bar, which is presently under construction, will be overseen by a trio of brand-new proprietors with deep origins in L.A.'s gay as well as nightlife scene: West Hollywood entrepreneur Rob Novinger, that recently reprise the messy Circus of Books right into a shiny pornography shop, started eyeing the dilapidated Gold Coastline building soon after the Available sign rose. To jump-start the project, Novinger employed the assistance of Stephanie \"Stevie\" Schestag, an attorney and former tv host that started her career as the owner of New York's fashionable V Bar. The 3rd participant of the triumvirate, celebrity stylist George Kotsiopoulos, is best referred to as Joan Rivers's tart-tongued co-host on E!'s now-defunct Style Police, though he's recently been going after a rewarding sideline in real estate. And also while Kotsiopolous has actually never actually owned a bar before, he confesses he's purchased from more than a few of them.

    \" Rob and also I have actually always talked about interacting,\" says Kotsipoulos. \"And also we have actually constantly whined concerning WeHo's bar scene. So when we listened to that Gold Coastline was closing, everything suddenly clicked. We've both wished to construct a bar that would certainly be a choice to all the loud gay Weho areas with the negative beverages as well as horrible lights. We want our area to have a community feeling, good songs. No TVs! None of this mixology rubbish! Back to basic beverages. Five components in a cocktail are two a lot of, as far as I'm worried!\"

    The old Gold Coast was a certainly unfabulous sanctuary for grizzled customers that preferred to take their supper at breakfast-time. Its brand-new incarnation is going for a different clientele. \"I think the entire concept of 'gay bars' appears a little bit dated,\" claims Schestag. \"Twenty years ago things were much more stratified, however the LGBTQ area has really transformed since then. There's no longer just gay or straight-- every little thing is a lot more liquid. We thought relabeling it the Or Prevent communicated some of that uncertainty.\"

    Novinger and also Kotsiopoulos will certainly be looking after the d\u00e9cor themselves, though Novinger claims he'll be accepting his trendy partner when it comes to concerns of taste. However he claims they are both figured out to stay clear of WeHo design sayings. \"For something, we will not be minimalist!\" Novinger states. \"It's mosting likely to be extremely Michelle-Pfeiffer-in-Scarface-chic-- cocaine elegant,' you can call it. I don't imply essentially-- I indicate '70s, '80s, '90s glam. We're intending to individuals our age or over 30, at least. This isn't mosting likely to be another club. We want it to be a much more sophisticated loungey place.\"

    They are wishing that their new area will aid spruce up a neighborhood when notoriously known as an after-hours cruising ground in the '90s. \"We want to elevate Vaseline Alley!\" says Kotsiopoulos. \"We're doing to have a deck outside as well as glam up the area. We 'd like to place a big Gucci ad on that open wall surface on LaJolla, yet the city won't allow us.\"
