Look for reviews at Off the Wagon Brewery - Rips is under new ownership. This bar is under new ownership.

Went to Rip's for Throwback Thursday after we read so many great reviews on the place. What a huge disappointment. The place is dirty and a huge smoke cloud. I definitely recommend hitting Daiquiri Deck if you are looking for a fun night out!

First tried RIPS after a movie to grab a beer with some friends. Staff was quick to get my drink, and my group had a great time. Then, I noticed a show for Bubba Sparxxx on facebook through some friends, with tickets at a good price. What an awesome show! Drink specials were on point and Bubba was so nice after when he signed my ticket :) I'm looking forward to other shows and who they might bring in next. The Dj's are always great about playing current stuff and requests, and always bring a crowd to the dance floor. There's a couple pool tables and variety of arcade games but I like the promotions or discounted drink nights like their newer Thirsty Thursdays, it's a great way to end my week. Oh, and the green beer on St.Patricks day was a nice touch too! Make sure to ask for the signature RIPS shot, I've seen friends do it and it's interesting to watch!

There is not much to do in Venice FL however, one of best places to be, if not the best is Rips Sports bar! A promising venue that spot lights on local artist as well known public figures. The creativity and design of the venue makes for a welcoming environment for all adults who are trying to enjoy the nightlife. This place is definitely where you want to be!

Over the past few months I have made it out to a couple great live concerts at Rips including Bubba Sparxxx and Afroman! The place was packed and we never had to wait more than a minute or two to refill our drinks! The shows were unbelievable and a ton of fun! I've also made it a point to check out some of the other live bands and DJs that frequent the bar on weekends as well! Definitely a great find in Venice!
