Wurstkuche Venice is essentially the same as Wurstkuche Arts District, just with fewer USC students. There’s the same selection of sausages, ranging from regular bratwurst to very not-regular rattlesnake and rabbit, the same order-at-the-counter set-up, and the same perfect for big groups vibe. It’s ideal for casual weekend beers and hot dogs with a couple of friends, or a giant dinner with all of your friends and an attempt to try every one of the beers on their (long) list.
