This bar used to be good long time ago, used to be a fun place to go with friend and dates, now after the pandemic the place is open again but the atmosphere is total different what it use to be 5 years ago, the pool table is gone and now is more open to the sidewalk but the fun part is missing for some reason.
I hope this place comes back to life again.

I have fond memories of going to the Sunday beer bust in the late 80s while living in WeHo. I am so happy the Mother Lode is still around and hope the bar remains for years to come!

Great place for Happy Hour or ANY hour! Friendly bartenders, good prices, videos and music(depending on the day DJ or jukebox) Can't wait until it opens up again after the pandemic lock down of 2020.

Fun Gay dive bar with decent drink prices and attractive go go boys. Came on a Tuesday night and was it pretty busy. The crowd skewed in the 20's to 30's range. There are also lots of cheeky traffic type signs on the walls and two bars which make it easy to get servered by the friendly bartenders. Definitely recommended for a night out.

The Mother Lode is a touchstone along Santa Monica Blvd... the grande dame of Weho gay bars. As the area has changed over the decades (!!) this bar has always been as reassuring as an old friend. And the most democratic of bar crowds, encompassing everyone from gay to Z.

Many of its faithful patrons — especially those of us of a certain... rank — have been holding our breath for the past year. When the plywood construction wall went up midblock it also covered Mother Lode's beloved gold-rush-era facade. In spite of assurances given, we feared that ML would just get gobbled up entirely. Or, gods forbid, remodeled!

That sound you may have recently heard was the collective EXHALE of a thousand happy customers. The plywood bandages have come off and the old girl has just had a little face lift! Gone is the aw-shucks saloon front. The new facade is bolder in design, even a bit dark. But it has expanded the sidewalk galleries for smokers and watching the world go by. And it has given the bar a much more open interface with the Blvd.

But the best thing about the 'new' Mother Lode? They didn't change a thing inside! And as we discovered, it was the perfect place to celebrate the end of the Pride parade with a cocktail and view of the crowd—inside and out. ????????????

This bar is always a part of my bar crawl whenever I'm in West Hollywood. Mark makes my drinks exactly how I like them and has an awesome personality. They are more than doubling the size of their patio, so people watching will be even better. Don't let the construction scare you away. They are open for business!
