Address: 52 Windward Ave., Venice
Townhouse's long, storied history of being a local gem in Venice Beach came to a crashing halt when the new owners took over. They've tripled the prices of drinks and placed a bouncer outside the door, which sent off a beacon for the West Side's worst in show. Now the beloved local watering hole feels more like a brothel because the only people coming here are those who were rejected at better clubs and are now desperate to get laid. It's a sad, creepy mess at last call. You will be grinded on whether you're dancing or not. It's just the risk you take at Townhouse.
