Townhouse

Townhouse

Map
52 Windward Ave., Venice, CA 90291, United States

This atmospheric bar at the edge of the Venice Beach Boardwalk is one of the city’s oldest—it began as Menotti’s saloon in 1915 and wound up decades later as a dive bar catering to the likes of Jim Morrison. Today, under new ownership, Townhouse is reviving its vintage Prohibition-era allure. Low lights, pin-tucked leather booths, and classic cocktails set the mood, while the basement room has been resurrected as the Del Monte Speakeasy (a bona fide speakeasy during Prohibition), hosting live jazz and burlesque acts.
