After a slew of hurdles, it looks like downtown’s newest gay bar Precinct is just about ready to open. Calling itself a rock ’n roll gay bar, the party spot sits on Broadway between 3rd and 4th streets, and has been pending with the city on a few necessary permits before opening their doors.

LA Downtown News first tracked the upcoming opening on Monday, noting that Precinct had finally started to come to life over the weekend. Rainbow flags and late night neon now showcase the location on the second floor of the corner building, just above Pestolini restaurant.

The bar’s Facebook page is keeping everyone up to speed on the goings on, as they plan to open just about as soon as the city lets them. Weekday hours are slated to start at 4 p.m. with an on-site happy hour, and of course the plan is to party late into the night. A few colorful design pieces can be seen as well, from the long wood bar to the 17 foot tall leather-chapped fella who will soon be standing tall on one wall.

Pending any further setbacks from the city, Precinct should be ready to come to life any day now. If all goes to plan, they may even have their official unveiling party this weekend.
