Hinano - the biggest dissapointment in Dive bars ever! 8/11/2010

Biggest trash bag bar in Venice - walk right by, smell that smell, and keep walking - yeah, thats the smell of alcoholic senior citizens - and thats just the bouncer. Get past him and if you can stomach the grimey hands on your cloudy glass, you may be able to get a beer down, but beware the music, its never what you paid to play, o that comes the next day or something, Im convinced. God bless the toilet scene, ugh, and the whole place wreaks of buttery body odor and piss. I gag now. Anyways, theres WAY better bars near by, try the Whaler -WAY better, or Baja Cantina - or just stay home - itll be better than going here. more

BEST bar on the Westside, HANDS DOWN! 4/15/2009

I moved away from Venice to Claremont last summer and I miss a few key things about living inland: NUMBER ONE is the beach, of course, but NUMBER TWO IS THE HINANO BAR! I LOVE this place. Went there regularly for the past 13 years and I gotta say there's nothing like it anywhere else in LA. Great burgers, ICE COLD tap beer in frosty glasses, good prices and FREE POPCORN! They even have a decent jukebox. I wish there was something like it out here but there just ain't. I miss you, Hinano ... Pros: Down home, yet could be completely ruined by hipsters Cons: Parking more

Burger Destination! 9/13/2008

Best burgers I've had in a long long time. If parking and traffic were not so difficult, I'd be going here at least 3-4 times a month just to get that absolutely fantastic burger. Not wanting to lead anybody astray here, I'll at least describe the characteristics of the burger that has me in a mouth watering frenzy. I understand that everyone has different ideas of what is a good burger. First I'll mention that I don't usually care for bars and this bar is one that I, as usual, don't really care for. Filthy bathroom, loud mouthed customers, bartenders that occasionally step outside to take a puff of whatever. The tap beer is fresh, cold, and served in frozen glasses! Yeah! The parking situation is what you should expect when you are literally footsteps from the waters edge at the Pacific Ocean coast in Southern California. Luckily, there is a pay lot that costs something like 7 dollars. If you get real lucky, you'll find a parking meter for roughly 2 dollars an hour. Now for the meat of my review: This is such a fantastic burger. It is a large sesamie seed bun. The patty is large, probably a third pound. It is served on a bed of shredded lettuce with grilled onions unless you specity otherwise. The real appeal of this burger is that the large, juicy patty is grilled until it is crispy on both sides. And it seems to be well seasonsed with salt and pepper too. Sounds simple, but who really takes the care to fry up a burger so that it is hot, fresh, crispy, juicy, and THEY REMEMBER TO ADD SOME SALT AND PEPPER just before placing it on the prepared bun with the fixings and deliver it to you in a paper basket with a (whimpy) bag of potato chips. Trust me, if you like a hot and juicy cheeseburger or hamburger, this place is fantastic. Pros: Burgers, tap beer, bar atmosphere, free popcorn. Cons: Parking, unpredictable staff and clients. more

Best Burger by the Beach 9/6/2008

Best greasy, hangover-curing burger in West LA. You'll find me there once or twice a week and it's always an empty stomach that draws me in. Great burger, amazing turkey burger. Plenty of good beer to wash it down. Great people to enjoy it with. Hinano perfectly fits my definition of a great dive bar. Friendly service from bartenders who remember you. Awesome food options (as I have already said: burgers!!!). Good beer choices. Live music, pool tables, and a jukebox. You will find regulars on their same stools day after day, but lots of fresh faces too. Everyone is friendly. I almost always go alone, but end up having a great conversation with someone new or the bartender each time. Good relaxed place to watch a game. Not a lot of TVs, so you won't always get your game unless you arrive early. Not a sports bar, but a good bar to watch sports, hang out, grab a bite, and relax. Pros: Great food, friendly people, good service more

RUDE BARTENDER 8/4/2008

RUDE, AWFUL, RUDE. male bartender has huge chip on his shoulder about something. AVOID THIS PLACE, for real. more

Great dive bar, just raised prices 6/16/2008

Hinano was one of my favorite, low-key, dive bar places. Great beer, great bar-burger, good pool tables, sports on TV and good popcorn out of the machine. It was also one of the last places near the coast that wouldn't cost you an arm and a leg to go out and have a couple drinks. It's still reasonable, but just raised their prices about 25%. The burgers that were great at $5.50 are now $6.50. The big Hinano beers that were reasonable at $5.50 are now overpriced at $6.50 for less than a pint. The pitchers are affordable, but small. Before, the only drawback was the fact that it's beer/wine only, but the prices made up for it. Now, I'm not so sure. Also, the last few times I've been in, there has been a rowdy-verging-on-violent element. more

Best Burgers! 10/19/2006

This is a great bar to be mellow and to play pool! The burgers are pretty darn good! We usually end our bar nights here for a quick bite and one last pitcher! Pros: Pool Tables, Awesome Staff, & Best Dive Bar Cons: Parking more

Great beach dive bar! 9/7/2006

Two pool tables, free popcorn, great burgers, and a decent jukebox! Live music on the weekends. Fun, easy-going crowd. There are great pictures and news stories of old Venice hung next to the bar and supposedly Jim Morrison's etched signature can be found among the writing and etchings on the walls and furniture. more

Friendly Dive with Great Burgers 9/3/2006

Go for the burger and forget the ambience. You dont have to dress up for this place. Friendly people. No problem in starting up a conversation, either. Not your beachy singles bar, but thats a good thing. more

Beach Dive 2/17/2006

A divey beach bar with great burgers, good beer, pool, free popcorn, and lots of colorful characters. Grungy guys; if you're looking for cute men go somewhere else. This is more a drinking place, which is good since it opens early morning every day!! more

Burger and beers 8/18/2005

Great place for burgers and a pitcher. Mixture of locals (some a little creepy) and tourists in the summer. TVs for sports, pool and darts and free popcorn. What more do you need at the beach? Pros: Burgers, Beer, Free Popcorn Cons: Dicey characters, No Hinano beer!! more

An oasis. 8/14/2005

A classic beer-drinking, friend-making refuge. The real California in my opinion. Cheap pitchers, great burgers, a future friend on every stool. Pros: Food, Ambiance, Price Cons: None more

VENICE BEACH JUNE 2005 6/14/2005

I would highly recommend to check out Hinano's on your next trip to Venice Beach. It is a funky little bar that is a lot of fun and has lot's of history. The burgers are GREAT!!! Juan, the bartender, is awesome!!! We have been to Venice Beach 8 times and always go to Hinano's. Pros: great hamburgers, fun, friendly people more

Burgers and Beer 7/1/2003

I'd have to say the staff aint all that rude, that person must have done something to cause the rudeness. The staff is great. I'm a regular and know them all. This is a great place to kick back, shoot some pool, watch some sports on the various TVs, have a bowl of chili and the best d-mn burger in town! Pros: Price, Beers on Tap, Atmosphere Cons: Parking more

Rude staff 6/16/2003

The very rude staff makes this venue an unpleasant experience more

A great old-school dive bar 8/7/2002

The saw-dust on the floor is classic! It really adds to the overall atmosphere of the place. Putting that aside, I am always amazed at how good the burgers are here. I have NEVER once had anything less than an exceptional burger. Great food and great staff to boot! Since it is located just feet from the beach in Venice, it makes for the perfect after-beach bar. more
