Wurstkuche | Venice/ Marina del Rey | German, Hot Dogs, Bars and Clubs | Restaurant
The Venice outpost of this perpetually pressed-in downtown sausage and beer hall can often feel just as cramped with lithe young drinkers, but the best moments at Wurstküche come during those in-between hours. The exotic sausages (rattlesnake-and-rabbit, anyone?) and twice-fried Belgian frites are fantastic any time, but you'd certainly have more room to swallow in the post-lunch, pre-dinner weekday hours. The open brickwork, easy wood lines and frosted glass seem more inviting when the room has thinned a bit, and you'll actually have time to peruse the carefully constructed beer list. Fan favorites like La Chouffe and Chimay are offered on tap, while bottles of Kwak and Aventinus remain popular options. No matter what your beverage of choice, sipping it slowly in the pre-rush hours makes all the difference.
