Southern rowdiness and WeHo debauchery collide at the Bayou, a hole-in-the-wall New Orleans-themed bar in the heart of Boystown. The Mardi Gras vibes are ever present with exposed chests (of the male variety mind you the gorgeous, friendly bartenders are never not shirtless), beads, Cajun grub, fun loud music and a liquored-up crowd. There are not one but two happy hours- 4pm-8pm and 10:30pm-12:30am- with $2 draft beers, $4 wells and $5 call drinks. Good luck finding prices like that elsewhere in the vicinity. It would hardly be a WeHo bar without themed nights, and the Bayou delivers with ‘80s parties and college-harkening Thirsty Thursdays, complete with flip cup and beer pong. Not for everyone, but if you’re jonesing for a careless good time at a lively and welcoming gay bar, this is a good stop.

What a place! Cheapest drinks in Weho, and the coolest/youngest crowds. No judgement at the door, an all around "Coyote Ugly" bar! :-)
