Should you find yourself surrounded by hunky, shirtless gay men in leather pants sipping on pints of Oaked Arrogant Bastard, it's a safe bet you've stumbled into the Faultline Bar. One of the city's most well-heeled LGBT friendly bars outside of Boys Town in West Hollywood, the Faultline is a Silver Lake institution for anyone looking to avoid crowds and maybe do a bit of cruising. Open Wednesday through Sunday with a run of recurring themes, most people crowd to the brick bar under the indelicate neon penis sign on Sunday nights for Beer Bust. Wide-shouldered men share space with Silver Lakers in search of $3 cups of Bud Light, with $2 refills. Or you can sip craft brews from Allagash, Stone, Hangar 24 and Firestone Walker while dancing away your Thursday night in your skivvies. At Faultline Bar, it's just another weeknight.
