The Brig is a long time Venice and Abbot Kinney fixture and hundreds (or is it thousands?) of people flock here every 1st Fridays of the month for a taste of the best food trucks in Los Angeles and to get a cold brew or cocktail in the bar. It’s easy to find since there are huge crowds there. It is at the end of Abbot Kinney Blvd. that’s closest to Venice Blvd.
