Go-Go Dancers are back at The Abbey Food & Bar. It’s a sign that nightlife is slowly getting back to somewhat normalcy as LA County eases its COVID-19 health restrictions. As of Friday, April 30the, restrictions were lifted on operating hours for bars, breweries and wineries. Bars, which are still only allowed to operate outdoors, had been restricted to operating hours of 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The Abbey’s underwear clad go-go dancers made their debut last weekend, Saturday, April 24th and they have return this weekend. Some COVID restrictions still apply.

According to a spokesperson at the Abbey, the go-go dancers are on limited rotation at the moment. Only a small number of guys are on the floor at a time. More will be added as capacity limits in LA County continue to lift.

The current new normal for the Abbey’s go-go dancers is the social distancing. The dancers keep a safe distance while they are on stage. That means no more slipping dollars into the skivvies of your favorite dancers for the moment. You can probably still make it rain, but there is now a tip bucket placed on the stage to collect hard-earned tips.

For those who miss the go-go dancer experience, their current schedules are as follows:

  • Fridays from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
  • Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
  • Sundays from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The Abbey is getting into a celebratory mood as the restaurant counts down to its 30 Year anniversary. The Abbey coffee shop opened in May 1991, before it became the massive restaurant and bar we know today.

The restaurant’s social media has been sharing memories from the past 30 years. From celebrity sightings, to moving across the street and back, to getting a liquor license, to Elizabeth Taylor, to a global pandemic, a lot has happened at The Abbey.

“We will be sharing some of our memorable moments throughout our 30 years..Join us! Won’t you?!?” Reads a post on their official Facebook page. “We get chills just thinking about it! We would love for you to share your #AbbeyMoment throughout the years. Please add #Abbey1991 hashtag to all of your vintage Abbey moments and or send us your photos/videos to Abbey@TheAbbeyWeHo.Com. We will be sharing your moments on our social channels. From all of us at The Abbey… thank you for your loyalty and making The Abbey your second home. #MeetMeAtTheAbbey #Abbey30th #LGBTQ”
