MICKY'S, WEHO'S ORIGINAL HOT SPOT, RISES AGAIN

After an intoxicating makeover, L.A.'s longest continually running gay bar is back in action in a big way. Micky's in West Hollywood now boasts a sexy new look, larger dance floors, inhibition-busting bar and an exclusive 2nd story VIP bar. Not that size matters...Vibe, however, does.

To that end, the new look and feel is a potent mix of queer-contemporary chic and heady exhibitionism. Seductive skin tones, and decadent materials, like ostrich leather and caesarstone, infuse this watering hole with irresistible ambience. As always, voyeurism is the dessert du jour at Micky's, where go-go boys heat up a seething dance floor, and frosted glass restroom windows tease patrons below the waistline.

It's Micky's unabashed raciness that lures patrons in the doors, but it's the bar's openness that keeps people coming back. A diverse clientele of young Hollywood, locals and Micky's loyalists guarantees an enticing mix of warm-hearted revelers and come-hither hotties, seven nights a week.

As has always been the case, risqué entertainment reigns supreme in this WeHo hot spot--albeit this time with unflinching heat, allure and excitement. Glam lighting and an enchanting array of ongoing events and nightly specials will tempt patrons to indulge in their wildest indiscretions.

Design of the space raises the "gay bar" so to speak with glowing semi precious bar tops lit with a series of LED color changing lights, 20 foot wide glass doors that give unobstructed views of Santa Monica Blvd., custom made furniture throughout the bar including booths overlooking the new and improved dance floor. The bar's color scheme focuses on clean whites and rich grays with orange highlights throughout. "This is a 21st century nightclub for a 21st century scene", says designer Dean Larkin. Larkin is credited with designing award winning projects such as Farmer's Daughter Motel as well as homes for celebrities like Lily Tomlin, Jane Wagner and John Fogerty.

Renovation of the space began in August 2007, after electrical fire damage afforded Michael Neymeyer an opportunity to re-envision the venue. "For more than two decades Micky's has been gay L.A.'s hottest community bar. Times have changed and so have we; we're excited to re-introduce our landmark space and revved-up attitude to everyone looking for a new nightclub experience."
