The pros: The atmosphere, stiff drinks and the people. Fun, friendly, lively. I was there on a Friday night from 10/11PM to close. As the night went on, the energy picked up and more people were dancing. Very diverse crowd. Straight and gay couples, all ethnicities, mostly 30's from what I could guess. The music seemed tailored to a 30-something... More

Local house bands drop in here and often are surprisingly good. Locals and some often beautiful people mix easily here, and the sometimes appearing stunner who you will have to marry. When this place lines up with the stars, it's unbeatable.

I liked the music and interior of this bar. But one toilet for the entire place is so so poor. Sadly it's all too common in the US. The bathroom was clean enough, but they should add a few more. The bar is in a good location. It's friendly and the prices are reasonable for drinks. I went there on... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
