E! is giving viewers behind-the-scenes look at the hookups, fights and breakups at one of West Hollywood's biggest bars in the first trailer for its upcoming reality show, "What Happens at The Abbey."

Sound familiar?

Located a few steps away from SUR Lounge, The Abbey has been called the "Best Gay Bar in the World." And according to the sneak peek at the show, the high-profile nightspot comes with some major drama of its own.

Whether its the dreaded C-bomb being dropped in a brutal battle, some wild makeout sessions and even a surprise engagement, the action here certainly gives the staff of "Vanderpump Rules" some competition.

See the official synopsis below. The show premieres May 14 at 10pm on E!

Presiding over one of the wildest nightclubs in Los Angeles, the team unapologetically embodies the open-minded mentality of The Abbey while fostering an environment of acceptance. Managed by owner David Cooley, the staff juggles delivering first-rate service to their VIP guests and celebrities while dealing with relationship drama, diverse sexuality and the pursuit of their own Hollywood dreams. It's not all work, as this outrageous and unpredictable squad somehow manages to party even harder than their celebrity patrons.

As for the major players, here's the cast breakdown:

  • Billy Reilich, VIP server: The small-town boy from Ohio and resident “muscle boy next door” is also best known as “Nick the Gardener” of The Ellen Show.

  • Marissa Chykirda, server: The new girl, straight out of Long Island. She’s unintentionally become a player whisperer by taming Kyle.

  • Kyle Clarke, bartender: The bad boy who has graced the cover of more than 50 fitness magazines and saves women’s numbers in his phone with the pizza emoji.

  • Elizabeth Steinle, server: A self-proclaimed gold star lesbian, she’s opinionated, strong and no stranger to conflict.

  • Kim Senser, bartender: A hopeless romantic who looks for love in all the wrong places. There’s one place she has not yet looked…her lesbian best friend.

  • Murray Swanby, VIP host: West Hollywood’s biggest playboy and dating fellow colleague Cory, he knows everyone in town and is always the life of the party.

  • Cory Zwierzynski, bartender: Sweet but has a short fuse as current boyfriend Murray makes him feel insecure flirting with other guys right in his face.

  • Brandi Andrews, VIP host: Ultra sassy and intimidating, she’s a lesbian in pursuit to have a child with her colleague Lawrence. It’s their perfect arrangement for a modern family.

  • Lawrence Carroll, VIP host: Ready to start a family with Brandi, he faces the reality of fertility tests, various relationship struggles and the most emotional of them all, revealing to his family that he is ready to become a father.

  • Chelsea Jeffers, management trainee: Blurring her personal and professional life, she dreams of becoming a nightclub mogul. She governs with sass and her strict high standards.

  • Daniel Eid, server: The ultimate comic relief, he is the self-proclaimed “best server at The Abbey.” A quirky personality and cocky attitude make the perfect recipe for the “Zoolander” server.
