The chance of a gay bar surviving the cut-throat West Hollywood club scene is about as good as Lindsay Lohan’s next Mercedes’ chance of remaining dentless. Up next for Los Angeles’s famed boy’s town: iCandy Lounge. Our spies in WeHo tell us, despite one of the worst names in club history, the place might actually have a chance at lasting more than a few weeks.
More swank Soho loft than down and dirty pub, iCandy is decked out in rich woods, moody lighting, and modern furnishings. The drinks are strong, and not really any more expensive than your average Tinsel town bar and the food is top-notch. For nicotine freaks there are two smoking patios, one that overlooks Santa Monica Boulevard, where you can scope the local talent.
But what really makes the club is the best-looking gay crowd in the country (yes, we said it.) All those out of work actors and models gotta’ hang out somewhere, right? Even better, the smokin’ bartenders are hot and (gasp!) actually friendly.
iCandy is the brainchild(and we use the word ‘brain’ loosely around here) of Tyler Robuck, and he, and the clubs opening are featured in the new Logo reality show, Welcome to iCandy. But, Tyler, the name? Why, oh why, the name?
