“A big fist bump to Rob Lissner, Allen Sanford, and the team at The Venice West for bringing this vision to life.” The Venice Paparazzi
Los Angeles, CA (Oct 21, 2021) — The Venice West is proud to announce that it’s open to the public in Venice Beach, CA, with a high-end listening room, tasty food and drinks, and good vibes all around. The lineup calendar includes some heavy hitters, sure to thrill any music fan.
The venue’s name “The Venice West” was coined to describe the lesser known “Beat” scene in Venice and surrounding areas during the late 1950s and early ’60s. This era helped define Venice as a global brand known for its cultural diversity, eccentricity, and expression through music and the arts; where places like “The Gas House” and “Venice West Cafe” created a haven for poets, musicians, and eccentric locals to share their words, sounds, and creativity.
The venue has been poised to open for a long time, and was actually ready to open the doors in the beginning of 2020. “It’s been a long 5 year journey, with some unexpected twists and turns, as we tried to bring consistent live music back to Venice and the West side as a whole. We couldn’t be more stoked to finally open our doors and share our space with the many artists and music fans in the community,” says Rob Lissner, owner.
The Venice West was greeted by crowds of anxious music lovers and tastemakers in the beginning of October, boasting performances by Matt Costa, The Samples, The Wailers, and The English Beat. Reviews came back insanely positive, saying the sound quality and staff are amazing, and the artwork and decor are both: intriguing and inviting. The unique food and drink menus feature some unique and satisfying options. A delicious cocktail is always the perfect addition to the concert experience. It’s safe to say Opening Weekend was a smash hit for this 200 capacity venue, and the upcoming artist calendar is looking exciting!
The Venice West is ready to host some epic performers in the near future, like The Skatalites, Young Dubliners, Donavon Frankenreiter, and many more! This weekend, we welcome blues guitar legend Coco Montoya and The Mother Hips with their own blend of California soul.
The Venice West, and it’s ‘good vibe tribe’, are absolutely set for a successful tenure in the live music industry. The Venice locals have been begging for a music and arts establishment along the West Side that offers live entertainment in a cool, unique space. Once their doors opened, it became clear The Venice West is exactly what we all needed…and definitely worth the wait.
