Los Angeles Opening: Dry Tour

Venice Beach is known to be a little on the crumbly side; take a look inside your best surf buddy’s ocean-side apartment for a reminder. So, it’s with great tradition (or irony) that the guys behind Dry Tour, a new wine bar serving charcuterie and paninis and artisanal cheeses, has stripped its historic building at 80 Windward down to its 1904 studs. When it was all said and done, they left the original chipped ceiling and floor tiles behind, and highlighted the antique vaulted ceilings and old brick with Edison bulbs and simple chandeliers.

They’ve got boutique California varietals, unique vintages from around the world, a good selection of draft and bottled beer, and hand-crafted cocktails – all a stone’s throw from the infamous VENICE sign hanging at Windward and Pacific. (Don’t throw stones into the intersection.)
