The Sidewalk Cafe
A bustling restaurant and bar in the heart of Venice beach, The Sidewalk Cafe has been serving classic American cuisine from its sprawling outdoor patio with a full-service bar inside for over 40 years. The easily accessible and friendly staff continuously banter with the lively fun-loving locals who all seem to know each other, adding to the authentic atmosphere of this seaside sports bar. Hundreds of photos from past years events line the wall to the toilet and offer a momentary glimpse into the big heart of this community-oriented staff’s personal lives. Come here for happy hour, offered Monday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., and leave with few new friends and the guarantee of a smile.
