$5 Cover to go into a shit hole.While barhopping my boyfriend and I heard some blaring music coming from a basement so it peaked our interest -- we are BIG FANS of dirty dives. We went to the Golden Gopher first, then Ham and Eggs, and decided to give El Guacho a try. As we were going down the stairs, the "bouncer" or whatever you would call him stopped us in our tracks. I didn't understand too much of what he was saying but what I did understand was "no women allowed. Men only." I was disgusted and felt discriminated. I tried to walk a few steps more to get a better peak, but the man started walking up the stairs to block my path. I get it, I'm unwelcome. If there are strippers down there, why wouldn't women be allowed? Even gentlemen clubs and strip clubs I've been to allow women. Either way, the place looked dumpy and sketchy from what I saw, and the male patrons that were coming and going looked just as grimy. As someone who lives in downtown, I support DTLA establishments but El Guacho has made it to my shit list. Steer clear.
