Platinum

Best Lesbian Night, August 2008

West Hollywood’s Here Lounge plays hip-hop at its Thursday night lesbian party known as Heat, while Truck Stop, at the same location on Fridays, is all about body shots from dancing bartenders. The scene is less gritty at Platinum, held Thursday nights at East/West Lounge. The crowd is usually made up of professional women in their thirties and the occasional celesbian sipping cocktails and settling into deep couches. There’s no cover charge, and the music is low enough to hear yourself think.
