Well-located beach bar in the heart of Venice. Excellent staff, tasty grinds, beautiful ocean side atmosphere. Perfect for a Saturday beer and burger by the sea. Joaquin was awesome and took great care in making sure we were enjoying our time there. Thanks Whaler staff!

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
