Great little spot for live entertainment and a very nice ice cold beer.Weather was perfect this weekend to sit out and watch the sun set.
Went here on saturday and had a pitcher of beer called oscar can of bliss . AMAZING , had a citrus bite to it and made it super refreshing , also had fries , chips and Salsa and wings , all were great. We will be back.

About to RAVE about this place!!! Vibe is amazing, prices amazing, energy amazing, beer amazing, but the staff .... how do I even begin to describe?! OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING!!! Daniel was our bartender and he literally was the BEST server we've ever met, and we've been to our fair share of bars thank you for making Venice even better then we already thought it was! We are def about to become regulars More...
Excellent people watching spot with occasional live music. You could spend pitcher after pitcher of beer here just taking in Venice.
Zelo dobra hrana , pivo , lokacija zraven Santa Monica Pier
This place was great! Highly recommend it. Tons of locals. I sat for an hour hanging with folks and chatting. Only downside, I never once had a waiter approach! But it was a great place to hang out and share a beer. More...
The place for adult beverages on Venice Beach

Fast friendly service!
Dee De Bortoli
Great place little small but good vibes
The band tonight was great. The guitar player was shredding.
Dennis & I have been coming here for 9 years. Although the ambiance has changed a bit, the local beach feel is still amazing. The beer is always cold & the food very flavorful. I still wish we lived closer so we could come here more often. Come for the tacos, stay for the sunset!!! More...
Great music and great food. Always a good time at the Venice Beach Bar
Loud, bustling bar with a great beer list. A bit tight/crowded for me but if you're looking for a nice craft beer on the beach this is a good spot.
Fantastic delicious romantic night
I have been coming to this place since about 3 years ago! Always great vibes and lovely staff! Friendly vibrant atmosphere!
Great location with ocean views, super friendly staff, good beer and food selection. Love the truffle fries and the short rib grilled cheese. Will definitely be back for that!
Our waitress’s was amazing! Food was out fast
Love this place always good vibe and nice people
Gr8 service and interesting views. Nice place
Very dive-y beach bar: open air environment, right on the beachfront sidewalk.
Good happy hour nachos. Good happy hour. Nice top deck. Fresh beer. Screwdriver was on point. Nice spot to drink.
Coming back soon

We enjoyed our drinks and food. The view was more than perfect.
DOÑA TATIANA APART HOTEL
The best atmosphere in all of Venice Beach! What more could you ask for? Beach ,live music, full bar, 2 floors, sports on the TVs, and great food! The fish tacos are amazing! Great staff! More...
I thought this place was pretty nice! Nice people, nice view, lots of screens. The brussel sprout salad was a nice healthy offering. The 5 wings for $8 was a bit light (was expecting 6-8) but all and all nice place nice staff, will go back. More...
Nice place to have a beer and some good food. Happy hour prices are great.
Great place for beer ,food and live music like to play there with my rock and roll band this summer.

Bloody Mary are awesome
Lugar hermoso. A pie o en bicicleta es para pasear tranquilamente
Great place to sit at the bar and get a beer while it's hot outside great appetizers there's outdoor seating there's upstairs seating the only thing is upstairs would have been great if the music wasn't that loud and keep in mind I Blair music so for me to say loud music it was a pinch too loud upstairs.
Great food, good service, and great drinks. Price is ok but the environment makes up for it! Good spot to people watch!
Beat Bloody Mary on the Beach.
discreto posto situato sul ocean front walk di Santa Monica, dovrebbe essere una nuova gestione, il menù è a prevalenza di carattere messicano, ottima vista e tavoli all'aperto. Economico per dove si trova, noi ci siamo trovati bene, prezzi ragionevoli. More...
Food and atmosphere is AWESOME!! Major upgrade from the last establishment! Rockin’ bands too!!
Always a good time. Great food and great music.
Great location LOL food was awesome and service
It's a dive with expensive drinks but lots of pretty ladies.
Awesome place. Good service good food and a nice view of the beach
Very friendly bartenders for how busy they were.
Liked the second floor, great spot for lunch and drinks
In the heart of iconic Venice Beach
Good beers cool crowd
Super bon burger végétarien

Great spot to grab a beer while walking along the beach!
great customer service and atmosphere
Great tacos and fantastic service
The food was great. Very good prices. My beer was cold. The staff are pretty and friendly. I will make it my regular hang out when i come to Venice
just beautiful scenery and people
Had a great time there, Dave, Zack, and everyone there, great food and drinks! Charlie n Sarah from Pa. 4/5/19 - 4/7/19
Great place. Small washroom which becomes a problem when consuming lots of beer lol. But still a great place.
The bartender Brandon was great, friendly and personable!! would come back!
Un buen sitio donde parar a echarte una cerveza
Cozy little spot with a good view of the beach from the boardwalk. A band usually sets up in front and plays some good tunes.
Great place for long pours!
Urig, kleine Gerichte, netter Service, internationales Publikum.
Great place for a beerFood was OK at best.
Though, once again, I refuse to qualify something as a dive that clearly is not, I do like this bar a lot.I like it from the strong drinks to the very eerie Barbie doll chandelier hanging overhead to the great jukebox that gets regularly updated to the regulars that span from surly and strung out to tragically hip. This place is dark, sometimes crowded, sometimes blurry but always fun! More...
Muy rica comida mexicana, música en vivo. Un lugar con mucha onda!
Decent food. Neat, comfy location.
Cool crowd and ambient
Love this place. Nice place to see the sunset... Good food. Best in Venice.
Food was delicious, the service was good.
Nice people, delicious beer and a great atmosphere. I'll be back
Dag Solem Stemnes
Nice place to have a couple of buckets witn Stellas.
Had some fine local drinks here. Great place to just chill out and watch the boardwalk and all it's weirdness go on
I love this place so much that every time I visit Cali I come here. It's a fantastic place to people watch. Grab a beer, go seat upstairs looking out the window and just watch the people outside. Not very pricey, but it can be a bit crowded sometimes because it's one of the few places that serves liquor on that boardwalk. It's very lively, music always playing, and the people are happy. Absolutely love it. Love California!!! More...
I had a bottomless mimosa and eggs benedict, the best way how to start your day
Great spot to sit and watch the madness.
Maria Ines Quesada
Amazing Excellent time !!!! I recommend
Feb 15 Ramones cover band, Damones Guest appearance by Robert Romanus,DAMONE Valentines Day Special!
What's not to love! Right on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, easy parking, best tacos EVER and great bar! We played there for the first time (The Bounty) and LOVED it!! Can't wait to go back! Great Place!!!! More...
David Frost II
Great food, drinks, and service.
Man there's a good place to eat with man
Dejlig øl med skøn udsigt over strand med palmer
Easy in and out and always service with a smile. Food & brew were both good. Great vibe here going back to the 60's!
I visited here a few months back , I stayed next door in a hotel , the locals are friendly and it's right on the boardwalk, if you're visiting Venice beach, definitely stay for a drink
Impresionante puesta de sol con deliciosas cervezas y comidas
Haven't been here in years, alot has chaned..loved this place
This place is awesome. I visit everytime I'm in venice. The food was delicious and affordable. Atmosphere is that fun cool California beach vibe. Plenty of seating and fast service. Very cool More...
Un sitio simpático para tomar algo en medio del paseo playero. Ambiente relajado, muuuy relajado
Mary Lou Vela
Nice beach boardwalk bar and food was good
Great beer and a beautiful waitress
Great atmosphere right on the strip Go bicycling Or ride a scooter
Go upstairs and enjoy the sea the crow moving on the longest colorful walk of the west coast
Great view, fun people watching
Recomiendo el aperol..
Great local hangout, nice friendly atmosphere
Great service. The fried pickles are delicious! Cocktails presentation AWESOME. Good and fast service.
Nice little spot with a second story overlooking the beach to cool off and have a few drinks. Didn’t have any food so I can’t comment on that.
Tolles Lokal, gutes Essen und super Bedienung!
David was an excellent bartender in guided us through our experience like very few bartenders can. The ambience was amazing and so was the beer selection and food. I would go back again and recommend anybody to go back this establishment. Can't wait to go back again myself. More...
Excellent venue for just having a beer and watching the sunset over the ocean. You might even get a show from one of the locals (not necessarily a good show)
Great views, friendly staff and I LOVED the bottomless mimosas.
Wild mushroom quesadilla is awesome and perfectly filling. Good beer choices. Bar tender switched TV to Champions League soccer game for us. Nice guy. Quick service.
One of the most relaxing and fun places on the beach love it
Maybe the nicest place in Venice Beach, but nothing is nice in Venice Beach!!
Just wanted to send a massive THANK YOU to Brandon at Venice Beach Bar. I was traveling from Dubai and mistakingly left my wallet at the bar. I unfortunately was already back abroad, but Brandon graciously found me on facebook to let me know that he had found my wallet and would keep it safe for me. I am forever grateful for his kindness and reassurance of keeping my wallet safe until a friend picked it up. Thank you again, Brandon! See ya next time I'm back in Venice, for the killer nachos, cold beer, and nice service. (next time I'll take my wallet home with me) More...
Great service and people watching
Good for a quick drink...
Awesome place to hang out at
Nice view of the beach
Great atmosphere and good happy hour
Everyone in my group knew what they wanted except me. The waitress said she would come back to take my order. I understand that part perfectly well, but, she came back and never asked me if I wanted something, and it was difficult to get her attention. Finally after she had come back several times, she finally paid attention to me and got my drink order. For a party of 7, 4 adults and 3 kids, the 18% tip was already charged, so there was no room to leave a smaller tip, such as 15%, very small difference, I know. The nachos we ordered were great. More...
Fun beach, sports and family fun.
Great service and food was really good. We all had the tacos. View was amazing. Loved everything about it.
Really delicious food. I was really pleased that I selected this on the boardwalk.
Great place to enjoy a drink and watch the Venice Beach scene. Our server was very friendly and super fun.
What an Awesome view and atmosphere . First time being there loved it ! Looking forward to coming back.
Great bartender! Good drinks. Havent had food yet but would visit again. Clean as well. A nice plus for being on venice beach
Busy bar slow table service good view of beach
The drinks are the best I had anywhere in the area. The rum drink in the coconut was very good. Street entertainment was very good. My favorite place to chill and people watch. More...
Cool views. Nice Venice tribe employees
Transients of Hope
Didn't go inside, but the patrons let me play music for them while they are, then tipped me well.
Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. Good service and nice atmosphere.
great beer and scenery, tons of girls and except one downfall a bar regular was a big mouth. so he must of been police. but it was was cool place to relax and have lunch and ice cold brewskys
nice loved it
Best over all beer bar and food bar in Venice.
Just had drinks and people watched. Service was good and can't beat sitting outside.
A good little spot to enjoy the beach and a beautiful California sunset. The beer is great and they have a good variety however the food portions leave something to be desired. However the building itself has a nice charm to it and it has a quite friendly atmosphere to it, the servers are nice and have a good sense of humor. There are indoor games to be enjoyed and a good number of spots to hang out with friends if you want to talk the night away. More...
Used to come here a lot when it was the Bistro. Had reservations about going back, but since returning I have appreciated what the new management has done!
Amy Banks Rausch
Walked in off the beach for a place to eat. Burgers and tacos were great. Zach our server was great also.
Such an amazing upgrade! Food is really good and the place wouldn't be as great if it wasn't also for the awsome staff.
Just popped in for a drink as the place has a good buzz about it. Really cool place and the house larger was very nice!
Great place!!! The salsa trio was amazing!! Such u our sauces and the chips were out of this world-served warm and crispy! I definitely recommend it!
We liked it a lot. We went there because our hotel we were staying at said they were having a battle of the bands. Ended being last week. The music playing in the bar made up for it. Beer was cold, music was great. � More...
Been coming here before management changed from THE VENICE BISTRO now to THE VENICE BEACH BAR...there is a major change...for the better! The food is 100% better!! The staff is awesome they work very hard to keep the customers happy. This is our go to place in Venice. Great food with a great view of the beach More...
The nachos are out of this world. Dave is the best bartender, awesome place to watch the Dodgers win�
Great bottomless mimossa's.
This place is awesome! The staff is great, the food is good and the drinks are delicious. The only downside I can see is no fans or AC, but that's what the drinks are for!
A fabulous view, rockin' tacos, and the best service on the Venice boardwalk! Check out the scene with a cold "Ocean Breeze" or just a shot of good ol' Jameson. BTW this is the only bar on the boardwalk with actual liquor, so get in there! More...
Awesome food! Friendly staff and great music!
We found this place by accident. We were staying at the Air Venice and was looking for a place to eat and drink. We stopped in and had the tacos and some drinks. Food, service and live music from Monster Soul were Awesome!!! We will go back next time we are in Town. More...
Wow! Has this place improved! It's now a cool hang with a new, bigger stage, sound, lighting, and upgrades all around. It is no longer the dirty dingy dive it once was. The food was great, the drinks priced reasonably and the service so warm and friendly. It's a whole new energy and I liked it! Will be back soon and often! More...
We loved the food , cocktails , atmosphere and the service ! Great experience
Pedro Alberto Sanchez
Awesome place like the vibe I would have gave it 5 star just that one bar tender there was a hardcore disrespectful dude seriously , he definitely was treating his people better than others for no reason
Dair Jules Ancrile
The food is great as well as the cocktails! We always love playing at places that are so welcoming such as Venice Beach Bar! Thank you! Such great service too!! More...
We decided to eat here on a whim. So happy we did. Fresh food, cold drinks and a really great atmosphere. Bathroom was suuuuper tight, but I'm not mad about it. I had THE BEST lamb tacos in the world. I cannot wait to go back. Thanks guys! More...
Great food server was bit slow couldn't remember items to bring
They have good beer and great food
Best place in LA to catch a sunset.
The food was great! I was shocked that a breakfast burrito could be so good! Our server was awesome!
Christiaan van Veen
Bottemless mimosa's en een super sfeer
Laid back beach atmosphere, good service by waitresses
Great place for a drink and music.
Nettes Lokal direkt am Strand. Super Lage! Die Bedienung ist ebenso freundlich und cool wie die Barkeeper. Es gibt ebenso alkoholfreies deutsches Bier wie auch andere Sorten aus der ganzen Welt. Hatte zum Bier noch Pommes Frites. Für die einen Stern weniger, sie waren leider schon fast kalt und auch nicht besonders lecker. Aber... JEDERZEIT und sehr gerne wieder hier. Wenn ihr dort am Strand seit, macht dort halt. More...
Right on the Venice beach Boardwalk. Great sunset views
Great service and prices. Right on the Broadway.
Excellent fresh food! Live music on the sidewalk and fantastic bartenders!
Great food and service. Loved my fish and hips
Nice cosy spot
Their potato wedges are delicious. But the music was on repeat when I went. Lol. Or it sounded like the same exact beat for 20 whole minutes
I ate here today and it was amazing
Good food, good beer, and it's always entertaining watching what's going on along the board walk.
The bookstore next door sold me
Very chill vibe. It seems to be a place where locals mostly hang out. Their nachos are tasty and come in a big portion. If you get a seat by the window downstairs it's a great place to people watch and even better view of the beach. The crowd was very friendly the Sunday evening I went. More...
Juist iets gedronken.mooie locatie tegen strand
Me encanto el hotdog! Riquiissimo!!!
Great time with great music
Great beer, great Wings!
Pretty nice bar and restaurant at the lively Venice beach of Los Angeles. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available with casual decoration, good variety of beers and food is served. We have also watched a live music band, a pretty nice one. More...
Great place to eat. Everyone enjoyed there food and it was reasonably priced. Like much of this area the building was unique but slightly small. We were able to get a table on a Saturday night upstairs and a group of 10. If you want to sit outside there may be a wait. The also had a live band that was pretty good as well when we were there. More...
The Sunrise Burger is delicious. Great place to soak in the atmosphere of Venice Beach and hear live music.
Fun for the whole fam
Great drinks & food ...huge difference since takeover of the bistro
My family and I popped into the Venice Beach Bar on a Sunday afternoon. We went up to the 2nd floor, giving us a great view of the beach, away from the boardwalk crowd. Decent beer select and full bar. We tried the salsa flight, giving us three options that were all delicious. They also had several TVs with the games on. I highly recommend the place. More...
Good food, good service, and the view wow!
Apart from my drink slipping off the table's surface before I could grab it, super service and a great time. Life street band right in front kept kids entertained for us.
Went for the band: Absoulute GREAT sound in venue. Rght on Venice Boardwalk.....nice over view of beach & comfortable venue.....hung out in balcony (more room). Had dlicious mushroom/cheese quesadillas. Very good for "bar food"...Much better than expected! And NO COVER/NO MINIMUM!! More...
Wirefreesoft Web Solutions
Great little bar in the middle of the action. Always a band on the boardwalk playing in front...good people watching location with a decent happy hour...or freaks watching the freaks.
Right on the beach with a good crowd, great beer and atmosphere
Good was great
Dive Bar- definetly too less skate/surf punk
Great food. Super service. On the board walk!
Great service and staff. Tacos were very satisfying. Enjoyed the blue collar bar feel on the waterfront.
Breakfast was good
Great - can be slow service though
Great bar right on the strip, fast & friendly service.
Very cool slice of Venice, great food, service and atmosphere. Budget friendly also.
Very unique place with fantastic view.
Great views upstairs
Nice view of the ocean and friendly staff
The waiters are awesome here and I LOVE the shrimp tacos
Michael aka Mick Toto
Venice Eatery local scene / tourist freindly.
Good food, great drinks, fun atmosphere
I love the second story window seating. Watch the weird boardwalk antics unfold with a beer and salsa combo.
Great place, especially now that the Waterfront Cafe is gone. Great drinks made properly and decent beer selection.
Liliana Graciela Banegas
Un lugar donde se puede descansar bien después de días de mucho andar para conocer, está cerca de la playa. Santa Mónica.
Good food, view from upstairs is great. Outside noise a little loud.
Great staff, drinks, and food
Visited this place 3, maybe 4 times during the week or so spent in LA. Good selection of drinks, really nice staff, good bar food and great views over Venice beach. What's not to like?
Great spot to people watch and have a few drinks
Great food and the waiter was really nice and was able to make good drink recommendations. The location and view were great as well (especially for people watching).
Small place. Good people. Good beer. Great guy tending bar
Love the place. The view is amazing. Even better when Peace Frog is playing!
Lively bar on the boardwalk with a good range of beers, decent bar snacks, and live bands
Just look at my pics of this place!
Paul Andrew Ramos
Excellent service, friendly staff. Fantastic happy hour deals and great food!
Nice place right along the boardwalk with good food and good drinks.
Diego Cisneros Medina
Muy buen lugar para disfrutar el día
What a pleasant surprise to go back to what is now the Venice Beach Bar! As a local I hadn't gone in many years because I'd been to this place when it was the Venice Beach Bistro and it was just gross and overpriced. They've upgraded the inside and outside, put hardwood floors throughout (last time I was there my sandals literally stuck to the carpet on the way up the stairs they were so disgustingly dirty!), the place has a new vibe and feel to it with staff who were all attentive and very, very friendly! Given its new state I can see myself becoming a regular here! More...
Nice cocktails they have
Great local beer, friendly staff
Good happy hour
Nice place to share with your friends and family .
Definitely a unique place to visit
Come in to see Mandy and Jess and Luis!Also, get a taco!
Nice little place
Great spot for people watching and a nice cold brew after walking the boardwalk. Awesome food selection as well. Well done all around!
Amazing bartenders, solid karaoke.
Good tacos, friendly service, and great views.
Excellence in service, food and prices!!! Thank you so much for my cheese-less taco!!
Pana & Jo Togiaso
Great service and food, catered for a big group. Must mention the service again... enjoyed it and we'll visit again
Go there, you'll have fun!
If you're looking for a dive bar you found it. I just wish the drinks were cheaper but they are by the beach. The bar tender might be friendly or might be a bit salty but they are always fast and do a great job. So good service!
booz and the doors Sundays...
