Culver City is a popular hub of eclectic art galleries, restaurants, shops and some of the best bars and lounges on the Westside. Take the new Metro Expo Line to Culver City and have a fun night out on the Westside without having to choose a designated driver.
From the Culver City Station, start your night with a short walk east to Father’s Office, located just off Venice Boulevard on Helms Avenue. Father’s Office is one of the most popular spots on the Westside for beer and burgers in a stylish, sophisticated setting. This spot is always packed with a high-energy crowd, so it’s a great place to kick-start a night with friends and meet new people.
Walk off that delicious burger heading west on Venice Boulevard toward Downtown Culver City. Stop into BottleRock on Main Street for an extensive selection of award-winning wines and craft beers. An exciting place to mix and mingle, Bottle Rock attracts a crowd of young professionals with a passion for wine, food and lively conversation.
Have your next drink just steps away at the Culver Hotel Lobby Bar on Culver Boulevard. This chic lobby lounge has an outdoor patio and serves classic cocktails in a historic 1920’s setting. Enjoy live music and bar specials at this popular spot before heading over to City Tavern just down the street, an all-American tavern serving up more than 20 of the best California microbrews, local wines and delicious signature cocktails. With warm lighting and distressed, reclaimed décor, City Tavern is casual, unpretentious and inviting.
Head southwest to Washington Boulevard and experience the Chi-Town vibe at Culver City’s largest bar, Rush Street. Inspired by Chicago’s dynamic nightlife scene, Rush Street boasts a restaurant, bar, upstairs music lounge and rooftop patio, drawing a hip yet relaxed crowd for dining, drinking and dancing.
If you’re feeling adventurous following the killer cocktails at Rush Street, take a 15-minute walk, past Sony Pictures Studios, to Blind Barber, one of Culver City’s hidden gems. By day, Blind Barber is a traditional barber shop, but after 6pm, patrons are invited into the back room, a Roaring Twenties-style speakeasy with an exceptional menu of seasonal cocktails and craft beers, along with popular grilled cheese sandwiches. Take a seat at one of the elegant leather banquettes; the DJ starts at 10pm.
