Hal’s Bar & Grill

Californian in Venice, Marina Del Rey & Playa del Rey

Hal's has been an institution on Abbot Kinney since the late '80s, even weathering the upswing in Abbot Kinney real-estate prices, albeit in a new location. Some things haven't changed, though: California comfort-food menu (famous turkey burger, great wine list and cocktails), revolving art from local artists and free live jazz on Sundays and Mondays.
