The Lincoln has provided Venice a cool casual hangout. Weekend lines can get long so check in early. The cocktails are great, there are also Top Gun-themed cocktails! Get involved.
Half a block from Venice Beach is James’ Beach, a fun bar that has an indoor/outdoor patio and a cabana bar and is a local favorite. The bar has also played host to a number of films and television shows including I Love You Man, Californication, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Steps from the beach and a perfect place to watch the sunset, the Whaler is a must do for a cocktail. Visited by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and The Doors, it is easy to see why this bar also keeps the residents of Venice coming back. The lines on the weekend can get pretty long.
