Built in 1922, this now landmark structure gave rise to the Beat Generation, a group of artists referred to as “Holy Barbarians” who came to Venice to find the peace that escaped them elsewhere. They wrote and recited poetry, embraced jazz as their new musical anthem and created a movement which spawned the Bohemian culture for which Venice, has become renown. Fast forward to the summer of 2019, and we still maintain the same energy and laidback energy of Venice. We're currently looking for bands of all types of genres to come and rock the stage this summer.

The Opportunity

Our rich history is only outshone by the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and its sandy beach. We have a full bar and restaurant with a 2nd-floor view of “Silicon Beach” and the stream of colorful passersby, often lovingly referred to as “The Circus.” Venice Beach Bar is looking for classic rock, jazz, blues, reggae and funk bands for spring! If you're a band in LA or touring through the area, this is your chance to groove at one of the funkiest spots on the west coast!
Come and rock the stage and perform in front of people from all around the world that come to experience the Southern California beach culture.
