We love going here and sitting on the 2nd floor balcony. It's a great bar to go and people watch. No outside bar service but the bartender does a great job at not making people wait. The always clean bathroom is a great plus too!

We love this place! It's become a "rehydration stop" when riding our bikes to/from Venice Beach. It's beer and wine only... no food or apps but they don't seem to mind if you bring in a snack. The only time we've ever been turned away...More

We have gone here for years and have never been disappointed. We enjoy grabbing a drink and "people watching" down Venice Avenue. It is a hidden treasure when needing a place to get away and have a nice drink. If you prefer to watch a...More
