Two women are suing the Abbey in West Hollywood, claiming that they were each raped by an employee there on separate occasions.

TMZ reports that the women both say that they were given a date rape drug in their drinks, then sexually assaulted.

The first woman in the case — who is gay and says she's never been with a man — claims that in November of 2011, after a fight with her girlfriend at the bar, she was slipped the drug by a busboy who then raped her outside the bar.

The second woman alleges that in April of 2011, she was slipped a similar pill and then raped in a car belonging to an employee of the bar. The women are asking for over $10 million each.
