Finding somewhere actually good for a drink in Venice is surprisingly difficult. Venice Beach Wines is our go-to for a low-key drink in the neighborhood - the selection is good (and you can always shop inside too), and they know their way around a cheese board. The little patio on Rose is a very pleasant way to pass a summer evening somewhat near the beach.
