My name is Chuck!!! And my wife and I ventured into The Olive grove because the town of Venice had rolled up the sidewalk at 9pm on a Friday Night, As we walked across a non-descript parking lot we saw a strange sign that said "the diamond lounge". We decided to be adventurous, a choice we had no idea would effect our lives in such a cataclysmic way. When we walked in the door we first thought we were interrupting a private party but before we had an opportunity to leave the entire bar was yelling hely and welcome and sit here, sit at the bar, we had no idea what was going on. Then a handsome and charming gent walked up and asked us our name, he then introduced us to the entire bar one patron at a time. From that point on we were Engaged in an uproarious series of interesting conversation, music reviews, movie discussion and lots and lots of wine drinking. Somehow during the course of the night my name had changed from chuck to Chad, the one name Floridians are ashamed of... we really enjoyed our time at the olive grove, seriously we think we may have found a place to be regulars! Finally...

Sylvia and Mitch are the best hosts in town! Have you seen it since they renovated this past summer? It's awesome! Homey, like the bar in Cheers!
We always enjoy going there for a pre-theater glass of wine!

We set up a private meal at the Olive Grove and it was fantastic. We learned how to make risotto gnocchi and it was our main dish. Sylvia is very attention to detail oriented and made sure we were comfortable and left stuffed after a 3 course meal paired with wine. Highly recommend.
