5. The Brig

Oh, The Brig… Who put you in Venice? You'd fit in better on Hollywood Blvd. And like most bars on Hollywood Blvd., there's a line to get in. Why people are lining up to get inside a bar with a one-stall unisex bathroom, overpriced drinks, and terrible service remains a mystery. The Brig's severely overcrowded and sticky with last night's cocktails and vomit. There's a pool table offered up as relief from the “dance floor”…but you can't really play pool if there's no room to move your arms. When you've started playing a guessing game of which gender is wearing more hair product, it's time to find a better bar.
