I'm really bummed about my last experience at the Brig. The drinks were great, it was a daytime trip, and the vibe was so casual and relaxing. Initially, the bartender was charming and fun ... then after our first drink she totally forgot about us....More

We had a beer before dinner at GJelina, right down the block so we could sit. Good draft beers and the bartender was helpful. Nothing on Abbot Kinney is cheap, but the quasi industrial look and not overpowering music worked.

Had some drinks here after dinner. Low profile and relaxed atmosphere, also fair priced beers and cocktails. Fun place to have some late night drinks. Foodtruck's outside for a midnight snack if you need one :)

Restaurant is on beach, no beach view. Restaurant inside looks run down but service is friendly, fast, and very good. Macadamia chicken is amazing!!

perfect for night out, good music and cocktail, it's friendly and at the same time exclusive. Try yourself.

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.

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
