New Businesses still flocking to West Hollywood…

Even in these tough economic times more businesses continue to see West Hollywood as a great opportunity.  Among others, in the past six months both Tender Greens and Yogurt Stop, have thrived in WeHo.  Both businesses are frequently at capacity.  Later this week, GYM Sportsbar is set to open where the Normandie Room was at Santa Monica & Hancock.  According to their press release,

GYM New York has won numerous accolades including being voted NYC’s Best Happy Hour for several years running, New York’s best gay bar by AOL City Guides and one of the five coolest places to watch the Super Bowl by the New York Post and Time Out.

GYM Sportsbar West Hollywood will be THE place to gather with friends to watch all of your LA sports teams, hang with your buddies or swing in by yourself and make new ones.  GYM West Hollywood will bring the same commitment to amazing customer service, low prices and warm, welcoming environment that has made GYM New York such a fixture in the NYC GLBT nightlife community.

America’most popular gay sports bar, GYM Sportsbar of New York City is opening it’s brand new West Hollywood location on Friday, Oct. 2, 2009.
The night will start with a private VIP Grand Opening Party open bar from 7-9 pm and will welcome the public at 9pm sharp.  Featuring a front outdoor patio, 9 huge state of the art High Def TV’s, a  projection wall and new sound system.

According to the sign, Healthy Spot, kind of a swanky doggie-care “spot” is coming to Santa Monica Blvd also, just east of La Cienega.

We know that West Hollywood is a more-than Dog Friendly Community.  A pampered dog is a happy dog?   According to their web site:
Healthy Spot is committed towards unleashing our customers’ passion for their dogs by being the leading provider of the finest products, premium services, quality information and highest care while breeding social awareness of compassion and canine education for the community.
Now if we can get all dog guardians/owners/walkers to pick up their dog droppings from the sidewalks and grassways, we’d be in good shape!

The last one that I saw this week is Block Party We Ho in the location that long house A Different Light Bookstore!  BTW – if you wish to continue to support ADL you can order from them online:  http://www.adlbooks.com/ The poster reads Fun Fashions, Cool Cards, Books and Selected Magazines.  I couldn’t find a web site so stay tuned.

So that I don’t appear to be focused on SMB only, recently the SoHo House was approved for development on Sunset.  SoHo House has a few worldwide locations including NYC and London and bills itself as a Members’ Only Club.

As always, I strongly encourage supporting local businesses (as long as they are being a good community member).
Live, Work, Play… and Stay in West Hollywood!

  1. I love that GYM is filling the Normandie Room so quickly. Anything that brings the gay back into the neighborhood makes me happy. Robertson feels too much like Sunset for me.
    I don’t think you mentioned Numbers Restaurant going out of business. Know the story there? I went there for dinner once and there were all these hot guys walking around in their underwear. Pure heaven! We need more places where we can get a good meal and see about a dozen or so guys in very skimpy underwear!

  2. The news about “Numbers” is especially depressing. I can’t help but mourn the loss to Weho when I walk past it’s old spot. Now the signs have been torn down and giant “for lease” banners plaster the windows. What a unique spot… and a great pesto chicken panini!

  3. can you give me the phone number for BLOCK PARTY WE HO
