The Townhouse has been getting Venice residents drunk since 1915 (back when it was Menotti’s Grocery), making it the oldest bar in the neighborhood.  During Prohibition, one could sneak downstairs to the Del Monte Speakeasy, where booze was smuggled in via underground caves and catacombs that led in from the Abbot Kinney pier.  Today both floors serve craft cocktails worthy of that bygone era in a space that’s both cool and cozy.
