The new concept from David Cooley will be called The Chapel at The Abbey.

Founder of popular gay bar The Abbey, David Cooley has his sights set on another WeHo venture: The Here Lounge. The lounge that sits directly adjacent to The Abbey will become The Chapel at The Abbey, a new nightclub space connected to the nearly 25-year-old club.

That means the nightlife mecca LOGO dubbed "The Best Gay Bar in The World" is becoming even larger. The Here Lounge will have its last day of service by the end of February, and The Chapel at The Abbey is slated to open sometime this year.
