I have heard people gay Angelenos talking about a gay sports bar in L.A. for years. On Oct. 2 those people will have to wait no longer as Gym Sportsbar will open it's West Hollywood location. It's a great spot they found: The former Normandie Room at 8737 Santa Monica Blvd. (between San Vicente and La Cienega). In New York, Gym is the most popular gay bar (sports or otherwise) in Chelsea. They always have games on and are packed almost every night. Plus, the owners are super supportive of (and active in) gay sports teams and leagues.
You'll definitely find me watching football some Sundays and Monday at their new West Hollywood spot. Check out all their info in a press release after the jump.
