Part wine bar, part wine shop and artisanal deli, Venice Beach Wines has created a supremely relaxed little nightspot whose small wood and stone patio just past the wrought-iron gate is packed every night with a talkative and laid-back crowd of creative types and boho locals.

On each side of the walkway, raised slatted wood seating areas with rustic benches and metal tables provide a serene place for patrons to relax over an impressive selection of wines, or sample some offerings from the refined menu of artisanal meats and cheeses.

The afternoons see Venice locals and beachy dudes showing up to take in the sunshine and ocean breeze, while evenings draw young professionals looking to mingle around the heat lamps as the space fills to standing-room-only capacity.

Although the patio’s romantic vibe makes it a popular date destination, groups of friends and business buddies will find it an equally appealing place to enjoy low-key drinks with a hip and sophisticated crowd – and those who want to take the party home with them need only step inside to the shop.

Cozy Yet Sexy Date Spot
Nicholette D. Dec 7, 2012
Venice Beach Wines produces a mature but boho chic crowed of serious wine drinkers and wine-curious patrons that pack the cozy Venetian hot spot night after night. The wine bar has a unique interior décor mix of metal and wood, creating a warm yet rustic inviting environment. The friendly staff keeps its wine patrons occupied while they nibble on artisan treats until they are seated on the patio. On the patio there is bench seating surrounding the patio at small tables that comfortably seats two, but definitely doesn’t single out enthusiastic groups enjoying a bottle of vino. During the day, Venice Beach Wines is a little more casual so it’s not surprise when locals park the bikes or simply walk over fro the beach for a mid-day glass of vino. With good costumer service and variety a varietals, Venice Beach Wines definitely sets its self apart from other Venice restaurants.
Ideal Westside Date Spot
Sara G. Aug 10, 2012
Going to Venice Beach Wines is a bit of a risk. It's SUPER tiny - and it's not a reservations-in-advance kind of spot. So, if you do bring a date, be ready with a backup plan if it doesn't work out. However, if luck is on your side, you'll be seated immediately - I hope your date is okay with sitting on benches and probably intimately getting to know their neighbor. It really does get cozy quickly. However, their wine selection is awesome, the prices are reasonable enough, the vibe is romantic with a dash of westside cool, and the lighting is forgiving. If the date doesn't work out, you can buy a bottle or two in their market inside, and start your own party.
