WeHo Bar Gold Coast Closing Permanently

Gold Coast, one of the oldest gay bars in West Hollywood, is closing permanently after 39 years. 

The Gold Coast Bar was known for being an unassuming gay bar with a happy hour and late-night drink specials. The bar hosted several fundraisers which includes the ever popular Red Dress Party.

The announcement was made via Facebook by one of the bar’s owners, Bryan Worl who posted a heated comment on the social media platform. 

“This is going to be quick and simple because there are very rude and sick people out there that thing because they say it first they’re some kind of hero and they won’t let the owners handle the situation under their terms and how they want to hand it after fucking 39 years of business…I will call your fucking names out!!!!! Yes. The GC is closing for good… We do not have a choice.. We have fought and tried everything with pressure from very selfish and heartless people. I did NOT want to handle it this way and I’m super pissed. You can’t give the respect to a bar that’s been there for 39 years and let us handle this the correct way?? I have to write a FB post in 2 seconds to stop people from their 5 seconds of fame and being the first to post something about this. It’s not fair to the employees of the GC wh are just learning of this. Are you kidding me???? This is beyond hard enough to lose a business and then not even have time to get something together and announce this in a civil way. I can’t…just can’t!!!” 

The LGBTQ+ community has lost Gym Bar, Flaming Saddles, and Rage Nightclub due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all bars to shut down for the past six months making Gold Coast bar the most recent casualty. 

Monti Overstreet owns the real estate at Gold Coast, Rage and the Hallal Guys, which have all gone out of business due to rent negotiations gone south.
