The Other Room by vinceklortho

Last Thursday night, I hit The Other Room in Venice.  It’s a dark wine and beer bar that seemed to have everything on the menu.

The good news is that finding free street parking was fairly easy.  If you can’t find any, they have valet.

The place is open air, so bring a trendy hoodie ’cause it gets chilly in Venice at night.  It attracts what appeared to be young professionals with disposable income.

I ordered a small Fat Tire, which cost me $7.  My date ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio, which also cost me $7.  I didn’t see food on the menu, but the people at the table next to us came in armed with a pizza and plates from elsewhere, which no one batted an eye at.

Here’s the upside to the joint.  You can take a date here and she’ll definitely like the vibe and be impressed because it combines the beach with a little class.  But if you do bring a date, watch where those eyes are darting because the place was full of hot chicks when I went.

The downside . . . the service is atrocious.  The waitress didn’t take our drink order until about 15 minutes had elapsed since our arrival.  And boy, do they make it known when you stop buying drinks that they want you out.  The waitress also took 20 minutes to bring me my bill once I asked for it.

So, arrive before 8:30 p.m. if you want a shot at a table and free parking.  The music is a little loud, but not so loud that you can’t carry on a conversation.  And you should probably dress LA trendy if you want to blend in with the crowd.

The Other Room . . . I did it . . . and you should too!
