Le Barcito called it quits Monday night with one last party for Halloween.
The bar is closing, according to its Facebook page.
With it goes the dwindling physical evidence of Silver Lake and Sunset Junction's gay and lesbian history.
GASTRO PUB RUMORED FOR THE SPACE
The closing event attracted long-time customers as well as first-timers wanting to get a final brush with history.
What will replace Le Barcito at 3909 Sunset Blvd. is still unconfirmed.
EaterLA reported several months ago that a second location of the Melrose Avenue gastro pub and brew bar The Village Idiot will take over the space.
That could mean some heavy compeititon for , just down the street.
BARCITO WAS SITE OF BLACK CAT TAVERN
Barcito was once the site of the Black Cat Tavern, where a riot against police broke out on the night of New Year's 1967.
Police were enforcing anti-vice laws and arrested several gay patrons who were kissing.
The event pre-dated New York City's Stonewall riots by several years, and earned the Black Cat Tavern a designation as a cultural landmark.
The Black Cat Tavern was part of a center of gay nightlife that pre-dated the West Hollywood scene by decades.
As Le Barcito, it was one of the few remaining gay bars in the Sunset Junction area, serving a largely Latino clientele.
We'll have video of some of the final performances at Le Barcito Monday night. So check back.
