Faultline, for the 22nd year will host TOM’s Bar, an annual parking lot event benefiting Tom of Finland Foundation. “This is a great event for a great organization,” says Ruby Nuno, co-owner of the Faultline bar. “We are pleased to continue the tradition of serving the community.”
Nuno and her business partner purchased Faultline in late April of this year. “This is an amazing establishment with a long history,” Nuno remarked. “We want to make sure it continues. We didn’t want to see the Faultline go the way of so many other iconic gay bars in Los Angeles.”
An established fixture in the West Hollywood business community, Nuno purchased Faultline intent on respecting and building upon its tradition. “My business partner and I had dinner with Shawn Farnsworth, founder of the Faultline, and we really appreciate what he created. That’s important to us.”
Faultline includes two bars, a large outdoor patio area and the parking lot is utilized for select special events. A destination venue with a neighborhood feel.
Faultline is also partnering with Lyft during June to provide vouchers for rides to the Bar.
A large part of what makes the Faultline successful is the staff that make it all come together. “I love working with these guys,” she noted. “We’re releasing a new mobile friendly web site so that everyone can know what’s happening at the Bar no matter where they’re at. The message is, the Faultline is here, it’s not going away, now come on over and have a great time.”
TOM’s Bar will be held Sunday, June 19, from 2 to 8 pm in the parking lot adjacent to the bar. Tom of Finland Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the work of Tom of Finland and all erotic art.
