The Abbey Named ‘Most Visited Bar in LA’ by Lyft



WEST HOLLYWOOD — Lyft has announced its fifth annual Lyftie Awards, a program that recognizes the most popular destinations in cities across the country, including the Los Angeles metro area. Apparently L.A. riders are pretty good tippers too.

Among the winners for the 2019 Lyftie Awards in Los Angeles are:

  • Most Celebrated Venue: Dodger Stadium
  • Top Transit Stop:  Union Station
  • Late Night Neighborhood: University Park, USC
  • Most Celebrated Restaurant/Bar: The Abbey 
  • Top Scooter Destination: Santa Monica Pier

 Los Angeles also placed in the Lyftie Awards’ national category, ranking among the Top Tipping Cities — second to New York. The awards acknowledged Los Angeles as among the Most Generous Cities after San Francisco and New York (based on Round Up & Donate donations). It also ranked first in Most Shared Rides (beating San Francisco and New York).

“Lyft believes in improving the lives of our communities and this year, we’re proud to celebrate the businesses, drivers and different modes of transportation that makes each of our cities special,” said General Manager Elliot Greenberger of Lyft Los Angeles. “We know that the backbone of our communities rely on people and the ways they’re connected to thrive. We look forward to championing Los Angeles winners for the fifth year in a row and providing reliable, affordable transportation.” 

Some drivers were honored as a Lyft Driver of the Year in Los Angeles. These outstanding drivers were recognized for having a significant impact on their communities and their riders’ lives everyday.  

“As a Lyft Driver, I really enjoy my job because it makes me feel good knowing I can make a big difference in my community and an even bigger impact on my passengers,” said Los Angeles Lyft Driver Steven Williams. “In my reviews, my riders talk highly of my service, about how I have helped them with their problems and on occasion have even changed their lives for the better.” 

This year, the Lyfties expanded to celebrate more than 50 markets and refreshed its categories to celebrate multimodal transportation and its driver communities.

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Los Angeles Magazine) — It was an epidemiologist’s worst nightmare set to the new Justin Timberlake/SZA collab from Trolls World Tour.

L.A. was hours away from shutting down all bars due to the coronavirus pandemic, but you wouldn’t have known it from the typical Sunday chaos on Santa Monica Boulevard, as throngs of people (some shirtless) crammed into West Hollywood gay bars like Mother Lode, Mickey’s, and Rocco’s for one last ungloved hurrah.

At Rocco’s, a drag queen in a black latex leotard bravely swooped her hand down to grab a dollar bill from a customer.

Another performer did the splits, touching the floor ever-so-quickly as she pulled herself up. Go-go dancers valiantly kneeled on bar tops, accepting cash in their […]
