Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Southland is ablaze with festive decorations to celebrate the season, and (ahem) spur along commerce. In West Hollywood the bars needn't decorate. They put on a show throughout the year. The ever-growing Abbey owes much of its fame to being glossy. That, and eating up half the real estate on Robertson Blvd. Crowds notwithstanding, the decor is worth investigating. O-Bar serves up a better mojito, however. (Not to mention a more relaxed scene.)
