Hal's Bar and Grill: Where the Locals Eat
Hal's Bar and Grill has remained a staple for Venice locals on Abbot Kinney Boulevard for over twenty years. Artists such as Ed Moses and Laddie Dill are among patrons that help make up some of the eclectic crowd who frequent the restaurant. Owner Don Novack, refers to Hal's as a "Cheer's bar", rarely turning away a patron for being under dressed. Novack is a savvy business owner, and also recently opened a Mexican eatery called Casa Linda just down the street.
