Was considered L.A.'s last gay piano bar. Over the years it went through many iterations and names, among them Patino’s and Toy Tiger. It became The Other Side in the late 1990s when it was bought by Paul Hargis. The bar’s basic makeup remained through the different ownerships: the driveway that led under the building and to a back parking lot; the hidden staircase from the parking lot to the entrance; the piano at one end of the room.
Subject of Jane Cantillon's documentary "The Other Side: A Queer History's Last Call"
