Venice Whaler Bar & Grill

Perfect For:Day Drinking

The dream of drinking and getting a little weird on the beach is a very real one. But the harsh reality is there are very few places where you can actually accomplish that, unless your old pot guy sublets in Venice now. And that’s why The Whaler is so essential. The two-story bar right on the boardwalk has solid bar food, cheap drinks, and a fun crowd not afraid to let some sloppiness sneak into their Saturday.
