David Cooley, Owner of West Hollywood’s Iconic Bar The Abbey, Lists a Lively L.A. Home

Restauranteur David Cooley, owner of West Hollywood’s iconic bar and restaurant The Abbey, is selling his stylish Los Angeles home. Opening The Abbey in 1991 and building it to become a two-time winner of the MTV logo Best Gay Bar in the World Award, Cooley is no stranger to curating glamorous atmospheres where people can wine, dine, and enjoy themselves. So, it’s no surprise that his own L.A. home boasts similar entertainment-forward wow factors.

The circa-1923 residence known as ‘The Rossmore House’ is located in central Los Angeles, just four miles from Cooley’s famed establishment. Despite the property’s close proximity to The Abbey, the home has the capacity to host many different occasions on its own. From intimate dinner parties to weekend guests, there’s space for it all in the 5,575-square-foot home and across its manicured grounds.

With a well-outfitted chef’s kitchen, it is easy to host five-course meals in the dining room or an atmospheric candlelit tasting outside overlooking the pool. A pool party is also a prime option, with lunch prepared in the outdoor kitchen and the fire pit ready for fun as soon as the sun sets. The one-bedroom guest house has its own speakeasy downstairs, giving  to entertain. An outdoor living room with a fireplace is also on the menu at this property. In the main house, three bedroom suites await upstairs.

Alexis Ramos of Sotheby’s International Realty – Beverly Hills Brokerage holds the luxe listing priced at $7,695,000.
