Here is a message from Winston House:

Winston House began as a grassroots movement to bring more live music to Venice, CA. Before we even had a name or knew what we were doing, we were throwing concerts in living rooms because it’s what we loved to do. The growth we’ve experienced over the last few years has blown us away and we’re grateful to every single person who has supported us.

The house offers a restaurant, bar, one-of-a-kind live music experiences, and will serve as a community space for artists and music lovers.

We look forward to hosting you!

Here is how it all started!  View message from founder Corey McGuire

During the summer of 2015, I opened up my house to a group of young artists who were new to Venice, CA. They had moved from Oregon to pursue music and needed a place to crash.

Having recently moved from the Pacific Northwest myself, I was familiar with showing up in a city not knowing anybody. People helped me when I moved to LA and I wanted to pay it forward.

“Helping” started with giving couches, food & advice. Soon it turned into hosting shows where they could share their music and make friends.

In February 2016, we made a logo and called ourselves Winston House, named after my childhood dog.

Since then, we’ve helped hundreds of emerging artists and had the privilege to work with some of the biggest artists in the world. You can see some of those artists here.

Perhaps more than anywhere in the world, LA is a destination for people who are willing to leave their home, family & friends behind to pursue a passion. Trying to make it on your own is almost always an isolating and lonely experience.

Winston House is a home away from home for those people and anyone who loves music.

See you at the Winston House!
