This place is a wonderland for your senses! Every square inch is covered with some little oddity. It's worth having a drink here just to experience it. Very fun and almost always has a pretty good band! Eclectic art and atmosphere for everyone.

Stumbled across this unique and eclectic place in a super cool neighborhood! Full bar and eats - live music was playing - neat patio and bars up and downstairs. Don’t miss seeing the bathrooms in the basement! Awesome for hippie types like me!

Funky fun late night joint. People used to visit Venice Cafe for shock value but now a days there is little left to shock anyone here. Mostly filled with late night drunks doing shots and listening to local funky bands.
