Venue CategoryBar in Venice
On a coveted corner of Abbott Kinney stands a large all brick building. Over the doors, a small black sign hangs with the lowercase letters spelling out "the otheroom" displayed in yellow lighting. This nondescript entryway is prefect for the type of bar inside. The Otheroom in Venice is a no-nonsense funky place that prides itself on continuing to have the coolest and most unique brews around. Giant accordion windows open up to the street, letting the cool salt air breeze through the venue. There, patrons sip on exclusive independent beers while occasionally chatting with passersby on sidewalk. Of course, there is a central bar where people tend to congregate while trying the latest and greatest beers that the pub has to offer. But you'll also find lots of people crowding around their more intimate tables, posted up on soft grey plush stools and matching ottomans. There, people try each other's drinks and debate about the merits of each brew.
Review By Darianne Doobie
While some bars like to declare that they stay on top of updating their beer lists, most probably can't claim to do it as often or as well as Otheroom. In fact, their in stock brews change so much, that the best place to see what they're serving up is onl
Bars on Abbot Kinney can get pretty packed during the weekends, especially the ones that are known for having an excellent selection of beers. So, if you want to make sure you and your crew aren't left out in the cold, call ahead to stake your claim on a table.

Sometimes the West Coast needs a little Texas hospitality, and luckily The Outpost in Hollywood obliges.
If you are feeling nostalgic for the bygone era of the 1930's, you don't have to buy a time machine, you just have to mosey on down to Oldfield's in Culver City.
If you are feeling nostalgic for the hospitality of the deep South circa 1920, Sassafras is more than ready to fill the void for Hollywood residents.
