Cabo Cantina has come to Venice at their new location on Washington Blvd. near the Venice Pier.
This really sucks for Venice.
Why does this suck? Cabo Cantina is the type of place more fit for Manhattan Beach or Redondo. It is the kind of place that Sammy Hagar should own and make a chain across the midwest exclusively in mini-malls for people that don’t know any better. Every inch of the place is covered with booze advertisements and the worst airbrushed murals I have ever seen. (A huge insult to all the great artists that live in Venice.) There is absolutely no sense of design save the “drink ’till you puke” motif.
Cabo Cantina is the east coast college town version of what Mexican food places should be … the kind of place that they hose the floors down at the end of the night after some frat kids have puked all over the floor and spilled their cocaine in the bathroom while they talk about the “slutty bitches” at the bar.
Places like this are the kind of thing that can spoil a neighborhood.
