    Cool wine spot. Plenty of places to sit, good selection of wines and cool vibes.

    Solid wine. Dark. Feels like I'm in a spy novel.

    Pricey bar with beer and wine only. In a lot of places it is very hard to hear people because the music is too loud. Has a nice look though, a great crowd if you can tolerate the other stuff,

    Great place to see LA beach culture. Beautiful women dressed nicely with guys in shorts and flipflops looking like Peanuts characters.

    Interesting vibe here. Almost nightclub with too loud music, young crowd and cheesy 90's décor. 12 or so draught beers, rather pricey $9 for 13oz porter. Not what I'd call a laid back beer bar.

    The best bar on Abbot Kinney. Whether you're looking for hops on tap or their nice selection of wines. The atmosphere makes this the perfect date spot after a dinner in venice.

    Amazing beer selection and friendly and knowledgeable staff. It's pretty dark, but in a cozy kind of way with comfortable benches and even some more secluded rooms if you want a bit of privacy.

    Exposed brick and tin roof give it a vintage feel. This place is dark and sexy...They serve wine and beer - pretty good selection. Gets crowded weekends, expect lineage. Worth going to for sure.

    Not bad early in the day but at night you get all kinds of douchebags from the ass end of somewhere who act like there from LA or Venice, the weekends forget it!

    This place fosters a genuine neighborhood feeling with displays of local artists’ work. The volume is loud, the crowd is totally diverse (from pros to bros) and the beer selection is great.

    The vibe is, say it with us, "laid back" — locals often bring in their gigantic dogs, and no one seems to bat an eye. It’s wine and beer only, which keeps things civilized. Oh, and there’s no food. Read more

    A bit pretentious at times but can also be very chill -- always better to catch the early crowd. If you enjoy many different wines and beers this is a spot to check out. No hard liquor tho. Reminds m

    Ótima opção pra tomar um drink e fazer novas amizades. Ambiente com pouca luz e som num volume acima do 'ambiente', mas não se preocupe, é de boa qualidade.
