This Venice icon has been around since the 1960’s and is the kind of place you go into for one drink and walk out plastered and maybe with a lower-back henna tattoo. There’s a daily 4 - 8pm happy hour, free popcorn, pool tables, sawdust on the floor (can’t imagine what that’s for), and an absolutely legendary burger. If you’re looking for a low-key spot to grab a few too many drinks amongst people who actually live in the area, Hinano is your spot. Cash only.
