THE BRIG has been instrumental in the Los Angeles food truck explosion in the early 2000s with its parking lot serving as the launching space for several well known trucks. In commemoration of the anniversary, THE BRIG has organized food trucks operation from day to night, including the world-famous Kogi Truck.
Babe Brandelli’s original THE BRIG, established in 1952, boasts a bohemian charm and charisma reflecting the neighborhood’s diverse spirit.
The iconic bar serves as the gateway to Los Angeles’ premier dining and shopping mecca in Venice, California. When travelers first glimpse THE BRIG’s iconic sign above the illustration of renowned Golden Globes boxer and former owner, “Babe” Brandelli, they know they have arrived in the heart of the Abbot Kinney district.
Once through the weathered door, guests are greeted by a refreshed mid-century interior, influenced by the popular modern stylings during the early years of “Babe” Brandelli’s Brig. At the rear of the bar is the entrance to an expansive patio, flanked by the famed Art Mortimer mural-with-in-a mural.
THE BRIG is known for its popular MOJITOS menu, including SPICY with Havana Club Rum, Mint, Lime & Thai Bird Chili; MEZCAL with Mal Bien Mezcal, Mint & Lime; ABSINTHE with Pernod Absinthe, Mint & Lime.
