Los Angeles is losing one of its oldest and most dearly beloved gay bars: Roosterfish in Venice is set to close after 37 years after a rent hike has made its lease unaffordable.
Wrote bartender Gaetano Jones on Facebook:
â€œSo yes the rumors are trueâ€¦ After 37 years of business, The Roosterfish is closing for good in Mayâ€¦ I have been lucky to work there since I have arrived in LA, but all things come to an end. Now if anyone hears of some good job openings for a single dad please pass them along to me.â€
â€œThe landlord raised the rent,â€ Jones added in a reply to his original post.
