The Bayou might seem like just another bar amongst the Santa Monica Blvd. chaos, but rest assured, it’s very special. This New Orleans-themed dive is where egos go to die and misguided shots of vodka go to live their best gay life. The Bayou has not one, but two Happy Hours every single day, including one that goes from 10:30pm-12:30am: $2 beers, $4 wells, $5 you-call-it. If you show up to Boystown a little too sober or need a quick midnight pick-me-up, The Bayou is the party you want to be at.
