The Venice Boardwalk isn’t generally a place we advise people to go drink, but The Waterfront is the exception. The sprawling neighborhood bar/cafe has actually been around since the mid-90s, but recently underwent a big renovation that includes a brand new patio, an updated food menu, and plenty of decorative surfboards (of course). The weekend crowd is definitely filled with more tech bros than a Snapchat singles mixer, but this is Venice - it just comes with the territory.

Hinano Cafe

Hinano Cafe is a Venice icon and the kind of place you go into for one drink and walk out plastered and maybe with a lower-back henna tattoo.
