Sunny Spot

Venice residents remember the loungey Beachwood, which has been reincarnated as Sunny Spot, Roy Choi's ode to the sunny Caribbean. The updated watering hole for Venice's new beachside chic has a tropical theme throughout, from the brightly colored, floral-patterned stools, gilded dishware and utensils to an Island-themed menu from which favorites include Savory Bread that’s more salty, beignet-like fritters served with rum honey, guava jam and goat butter, and a Cuban torta packed with pork terrine and prosciutto. Don’t expect fruity, umbrella-adorned drinks here. Instead, take a Permanent Vacation with tequila, bitters and homemade ginger beer or make a holiday out of brunch sipping Piña Colada that's mixed with pineapple-ginger-coconut sorbet. Grab a seat at the bar or soak in the California rays on the expansive, enclosed patio for happy hour where you can get your hands on (and messy with) spicy, crispy jerk chicken wings, a Two-Fisted Cheeseburger ($6 each) and a bottle of Red Stripe ($3).

If you're not feeling like a super expensive cocktail next door at Scopa, Sunny Spot is a more laidback, affordable alternative. The vibe is casual and relaxed, and the bartenders really take their time in helping you decide what you're looking for. When it comes to drinks at this Caribbean restaurant and bar, the main spirits on the cocktail list are mezcal and rum. I recently tried a mezcal punch with a few types of liquor mixed in, and while it was a bit sweet, there was also a generous slice of jalapeno floating on top that added a nice kick. I'll definitely be back for brunch.
