Post LAX Cocktail/Snack Late

Coming into Los Angeles...

Possibly get to establishment at 11:30 (in the evening) on Wednesday; could be earlier Thinking Culver City, Marina, Playa. Cocktail/beer with a bite of good grub. Two drinks max-I imagine I'll be tired from flying. Late night happy hour perhaps? Romantic is fine as well, it will be that kind of thing.

      i believe that the kitchen at the tripel closes well before the bar area.
      iirc, the kitchen closing time is not posted on the website.

      1. re: Servorg

        Ah, the Tripel would be perfect for this occasion. Super plus on dessert. Any idea what "close" time can typically be?

        1. re: nyeac

          I'd call them directly to get the right information, (especially since you are going on a weeknight) as places like this may shut early if there is no one coming in late.

          1. re: Servorg

            Called Tripel. Food ordering by 11.

          2. re: nyeac

            LA is not a late night town, especially mid week. Waterloo & City appears to serve until midnight on a Wednesday.


            1. re: Dirtywextraolives

              There is part of their website http://www.waterlooandcity.com/menu.c... that says they serve until 11:30 during the week.

              1. re: Servorg

                Ah then the midnight time I saw listed must be the closing time.

                1. re: Dirtywextraolives

                  The location of W & C is ideal and the building intrigues me. If I order at 11:30, will I be served with contempt? Do they kick me out at midnight?

                  1. re: nyeac

                    Don't know. I guess it would depend on who's in the kitchen that night, and whether they've had a busy or slow night.....

        2. Chaya Venice perhaps. Otherwise, any of the hotel bars, but not all serve food that late. Research Casa del Mar, Viceroy, Penthouse at the Huntley, Loews.

            No hoteI bar, going to a home; but perhaps the Culver Hotel Bar, if they still have that.

          2. I haven't personally verified this, but when Scopa, the new Italian place on Washington Blvd in Venice, opened they made a big deal about being open past midnight.

              Didn't finish my thought. On Abbot Kinney in Venice, Gjelina and Hal' s both serve until midnight. Better food at Gjelina, but full bar at Hal's.

              1. re: cookie monster

                Nothing appealed to me on the Scopa menu. Hal's serves a different function for me. Gjelina though...?

            2. Gjelina in Venice serves till midnight. Wonderful food. No full bar, wine only.

                re: gjelina:

                iirc, they don't serve their full menu until midnight, at some point they switch to their charcuterie/pizza menu only.

              2. Great one of a kind sausages and beer till midnight at Wurstkuche in Venice.
