Beloved gay bar, the Mother Lode, believed to be the oldest gay bar in West Hollywood’s Boystown, revealed its new face just in time for LA Pride this weekend. And like a lot of the faces that we see in WeHo, the change is drastic.
The plywood that has covered the bar for the past 9 months or so, has come down to reveal an entirely different facade from its original storefront. Gone is the familiar face of yesteryear to welcome a new airy and open space with sliding glass doors and a much bigger patio. There is clearly still much work to be done, but Wehoans finally get a peek behind the bandages, so to speak.
