I hate any place that makes you line up outside — as if that means something cool is going on inside. Some people like this place, the DJs, the scene. Others despise it. Your call.

Local dive gets a face lift, starts serving martinis—you know the story. The good news: it’s actually kinda better…and still not terminally hip.

Liam’s not here making cantaloupe martinis anymore, but this is Hal’s house and the joint jumps. Good vibe, great food. Live jazz weekend nights.

Free liquor! This place has more happy hours than Blinky the Clown. And the ambience…think Best Buys with booze. If you want inexpensive Mexican food and strong drinks, Cabo Cantina is the place for you. On Washington a block from the Venice Pier.

Bar/restaurant. Cool hang, can be a scene. Good food and drink, a little pricey.

No more bar fights. Red Garter’s been tarted up. Martinis uber alles.

Heinous on the outside, not much better in, the Whaler can be a rowdy bummer…or, when the crowds aren’t around, a nice place for an ocean view brew.

Can be a scene, too Hollywoody, at times. But also really good food and drink. One of the better places around Venice to go for a nice night out.

The place had more character before the remake a few years back.

Good place to drink off a night of drinking and play a little pool. Friends swear by the burgers, but it’s bar mistress Mary Alice keeps me coming back. Burgers, tuna melts, breakfast burritos.
