On its Instagram page, the broker wrote, “CityStreet Commercial is pleased to present 8948 Santa Monica Blvd in the heart of West Hollywood. 8948 Santa Monica Blvd sits along West Hollywood’s ‘Boy’s Town’ an area that is a popular destination for locals with high foot traffic and an amazing demographic and mix of single-family and multi-family homes.

The firm said that a ten-year lease is on offer and that the address should be available within the next 90 days.
How ABOUT a BATH HOUSE Can I get an AMEN?

If you want to be taken seriously and have people read your comments don’t type the majority of it in all caps.
One more point. We should not exclude non LGBT+ BUSINESS OPEN. I understand the desire and need to keep WeHo a safe haven for people from across the country, if the come to WeHo to live their true lives… But RAGE had gone out of business from pandemic. Many empty storefronts of gay clubs, eateries & shops are out of business. There is ample property available now for anyone to open any bar club or LGBT+ shop or whatever, weather Pump stays or not. BTW – the entire BRAVO HOUSEWIVES FRANCHISE has it largest demographic of viewers as gay men… Read more »
What the hell are you rambling about? Bass is part owner of Rocco’s and Heart, where Rage used to be. The bar scene is thriving right now. The problem with Pump is, it’s overpriced, mediocre, at best, food, and horrible service. It’s sad because it’s a beautiful space.
she should not be allowed to do business in WeHo ever again.
Why? Should you?
Reading the comments is both funny and scary. People, the building is up for sale, not the business. A new owner would be smart to have the current tenant stay.
Perfect spot for a #Trump2024 campaign Westside headquarters location. (jk)
Oh, goody. Now, maybe the exploitive Beverly Hills Reality TV Breeder Bitch can GTFO and actually let a truly LGBTQ-owned business go in there instead. And in our own neighborhood?? Whoever heard of such a thing. A drag restaurant? An LGBT theatre? Wong Foo’s Newmar Queen Palace Chinese place? The Thais That Bind BDSM-themed Thai restaurant?? Maybe an actual LESBIAN-owned business for some actual LESBIAN visibility (for once) in WeHo? A new diner that gives Trans women jobs as an escape from survival sex? Come on! We are the “Creative City”? Act like it!
Could be outraged at this unnecessarily awful, divisive comment but hopefully you would consider a well balanced restaurant venue that all could enjoy.
Grow up. What an awful closed minded person you are. She improved that corner greatly. Stop being so gay centric. Gay businesses can open anytime they want. Stop acting oppressed.
The facade of this place was, and still is a wreck. Looks like siding from a cardboard box vendor.
Oh,oh.Look for David Cooley to make a move on this building.This will be a good chance for him to expand his Abbey empire.The location faces Santa Monica Blvd.which will be a good introduction to his places he owns.
A ten-year lease would be a good start and OK for awhile,but I bet he will dig in and make offers to buy the building outright.I understand Cooley owns the building where The Abbey resides.
If Cooley were to purchase (unlikely) it would be a separate bar/club. The public alley between Pump and The Chapel preclude an expansion of Copley’s current property.
Prior to Pump, this corner was a cursed property that changed hands every few years.
As far as I know Mr Cooley owns this property I could be wrong
You ARE wrong. Post your proof please.
It started out good but, the clientele for the area was all wrong. It first attracted out of towners purely to see LVP because of RHOBH… then after she left that show, the crowd changed. It might be LGBTQIA friendly but, it doesn’t really draw that crowd in. The decor is nice but way too boujee and a little gawdy. The interior is always really loud for the type of venue it is and it is far too cramped in there. The food is bland, no one goes there to eat. The cocktails are lethal but, an acquired taste. I… Read more »
There is a God
Would love a solid, LGBTQ friendly, traditional Mexican restaurant with amazing chips and salsa, delicious margaritas, mariachi on Friday and Saturday nights and backyard party lights strung from tree to tree. I think it would be packed all the time, lunch dinner weekdays and weekends.
That’s what I’ve been thinking for years. There are so many spaces that would be perfect for a restaurant the whole neighborhood would enjoy. Happy hour with discount margaritas and Mexican beer, free chips and salsa!
Fiesta Cantina or that Queens place on Robertson is the closest you’ll get to that around here. Is that good enough?
Neither of those scratches this particular itch unfortunately.
My recollection is that since the late 1990s there have been two different Mexican restaurants in that location previously. One was Tacos Tacos, another came after that. With Fiesta Cantina across the street that would be an odd competion now, and a risky venture.
I don’t think anyone thinks of fiesta cantina as a mexican restaurant. It’s just a dive bar restaurant.
